A Leap Of Faith.
And just like that, the smell of pumpkin spice is in the air, Han Solo uniforms have been dusted off, and Mariah Carey has emerged to grace us with as muchAll I Want for Christmas that we can handle.
It’s hard to believe that we’re near the end of the year. As the air turns cold and the dark comes way too early, the most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner and the opportunity to give thanks with friends, family and loved ones is here. It’s also the time we begin to reflect on the past year, to slow down and find a vibe that works for where we are today.
If anything, the last year has reinforced my belief that life is a roller coaster. That ups and downs are part of the journey but that stomach in your throat feeling on the drop doesn’t last. The trepidation felt at the beginning of a dip is valid, but in the end it’s all going to be okay. Coming out of the last year and a half, many of us are taking a hard look at what is important to us. I don’t know who needs to hear this; go chase your dreams, go against the grain, find a new way, and/or make that change you’ve been talking about for years. Taking a leap of faith doesn’t mean you haven’t planned, it also doesn’t mean that everyone will understand your why. That’s okay.
Dream big. Attempt everything. You just may surprise yourself. Wishing you the Happiest of Holidays and a Merry Christmas.
