While I wouldn’t have said this in years past, I know now that I love creating anew. I love opening to new ideas and expanding who I am and how I show up in the world. However, it is impossible to expand when I refuse to allow anything to shift, to change, to rest. In order to make room, I must let go – of tasks, habits, ideas, thought patterns. I must let go of who I think I am and who I think you want me to be in order to become who I am yet to be. And here is the hard part for me: I don’t know who that is! Allowing me to become who I am yet to be requires that I trust the process, the journey, life. I must venture into the unknown.
And sometimes the unknown feels scary.
Okay, perhaps often it feels scary!
What if it didn’t?
In the words of Jana Stanfield (and perhaps many others):
What would you do today if you were brave?
What would you do today if moved through the fear?
