I posted a quote today on my Instagram @youtwopointo“And suddenly you know . . . It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings” that has stuck with me today. With 2019 quickly approaching it is important to remember “new” and “beginnings” aren’t words to be fearful of. I used to be TERRIFIED of those words . . . it came with what felt like a gut punch. Why? To me it meant starting over which I equated with it meaning big life changes. It felt exhausting and so heavy . . . working full time and having two active boys the last thing I needed was change! I would always make excuses, put it off or determine something else was WAY more important. Sounds familiar?
Why do we push fearful thoughts aside as a human race? It is innate and takes a lot of work to fight against because it feels hard or too exhausting. What if you fought those innate thoughts, pushed them aside and listened to the more quiet voice within telling you to go for it, make YOU a priority? Scary, right?! Well, through coaching I finally learned how to listen to that inner voice and push through the fear – because it forced me to grow, challenge myself in new ways and see the power in having the life I truly wanted vs settled for because it was easier.
Over the last few years I have had many new beginnings and change in my life with what old me would have said I had no choice in the matter. New me now looks at those new beginnings and change with the perspective of having CHOICE! YES, I had the power to choose a new life and a fresh start. While it was terrifying, it was also the most incredible GIFT, yes I said gift, to myself. That is because it opened new doors that I had always been afraid to open – all doors labeled “change”. There is beauty and magic in the unknown – because YOU decide. YOU choose. And I chose to leave Corporate America at the start of 2018 and choose making a 360 career change to become a life and divorce coach .
Guy Finely said “The greatest power you possess is your understanding that life gives you a fresh start any moment you choose.”
So whatever dream you have, change you long for, but are scared of or goal you deeply want to achieve remember that you have the power to create new beginnings, anytime, anywhere, anyplace. YOU have choices!
