A New Year – a time to embrace the challenge of letting go of the overused and a time to allow the letting in of the underused…
May the journey you choose to take in your life lead to the opportunities you need to fulfil more of your potential.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” Viktor E. Frankl
“Life is like a camera… Focus on what’s important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out – Take another shot”. Dorothy Spring
Everyone has an inbuilt need to grow and develop. This puts us in the realm of the creative and unknown and this by its very nature can often feel messy, chaotic, confusing, frustrating, and sometimes never ending. Therefore, the more we try to avoid the unknown and creative, the more likely we are to limit our ability to grow and develop.
Excessive negative thinking about situations that have happened in the past will feed depression and excessive negative imagining about events that might happen in the future will feed anxiety.
The FEAR OF UNCERTAINTY AND THE UNKNOWN often comes up in my work with clients. Uncertainty is a natural part of the process of life and once accepted and included, we can allow ourselves more freedom to; explore our creativity, develop our ability to go with the flow, increase our patience to wait and see and open up opportunities for growth and learning.
