Is there anything scarier than starting something new and not knowing what it will look like in the end? Today, as I begin my mystery novel after a year off, this is what’s on my mind. But literal blank pages aren’t the only beginnings I face. So much unknown in my life. So many things I could be afraid of, and yet today I choose to look at the blank page with anticipation.
Today, I am excited about the blank pages in my new novel, something I’ve been afraid to write, but I’m rolling up my sleeves and committed to finishing, no matter how messy. I’m also choosing to look at the blank pages of my life, relationships, and finances as the road clearing for anything I want in life. So much possibility in my life because I have nothing blocking the way. That’s what this journey is all about. Discovering what I want.
T.S. Elliot said, “every moment is a fresh beginning.” Beginning something new doesn’t have to be scary unless you want it to be.
What new beginnings are you afraid of? Will you see this moment right now as a fresh beginning full of endless possibilities? I invite you to embrace it and get excited with me! Come journey with me and discover!
January 1, 2018
I’m a great starter. I love to plan and dream and talk about all the things I want to do and accomplish. I make lists and goals and plans, but somewhere along the way the follow through gets lost and nothing gets finished like I planned. That will change in 2018.
I have all the tools I need to accomplish my goals, but the biggest thing I’m lacking are clear goals. In other words: what I really want and why! Somewhere along the way to where I am now, I think I lost sight of what I really wanted. Somewhere along the way, life and other people started telling me what I should do and be, and I listened because I wanted to belong and be part of something. Somewhere along the way I jumped on too many bandwagons and lost sight of what really mattered to me.
#ProjectDiscovery365 is my quest to (re)discover what really matters to me in life. Each month, I am focusing on one theme and looking for that theme in my life every single day. I will take a photo, post a thought or quote or share something that moves me all in an effort to answer the question “What do I want and why do I want it?”
If you’re feeling a little “lost” in your life right now and need to rediscover your passion and purpose, I invite you to take this journey with me.
Follow me, then use #projectdiscovery365 as you post your daily discoveries.
