Dear Honey Run Friends,
I have realized this year that I have more fear of change than I originally thought. While I am excited to change things in my life that I am controlling, it is a different story when it is something I cannot control. This observation has led me to dig deeper into myself and ask why? Why do I fear change that is out of my control? Is it for fear that the change could disrupt my lifestyle? Is it because the change is unknown and let’s be honest none of us like the unknown? Is it because I don’t trust as much as I believe I do?
Que sera, sera. Is this statement a giving up acceptance or a trusting acceptance of my life’s circumstances? I want it to be a trusting acceptance; it is a trusting acceptance. My life’s path is filled with individuals who come in for a season and then exit. Some to return and others to be a stone in the wall of the chapel of memories that make up my life experience. All are important, and many are missed, but none are forgotten.
As I embark on another year of my life in this new year, I choose to not allow fear to creep in and paralyze me. I choose rather to trustingly accept what will be, will be, and embrace each new turn, change, and situation. I choose to control the only thing I can control, my attitude. I will see the positive in every situation, and I will work to look at myself less, putting others needs before my own. I do this selectively now, but I genuinely want this to become my nature.
I am excited for the new beginning of this year. I know that each day is my best day, and that tomorrow will bring an even better day, beginning today and with no end.
Happy New Year my friends!
Your que sera, sera Innkeeper,
