What is it like to “start over?”
It’s something a lot of us could only dream about a few months ago and here we sit in the position of the unknown, an uncertain future where suddenly you’ve been laid off from the job you were comfortable in and scroll through the world of job possibilities.
Yes, it’s scary.
But, they say, whoever they are, that the only things worth doing and exploring are the ones that scare you a little bit. Lets face it – EVERYTHING is a little weird and scary right now, I think it’s suppose to be based on movies like “Contagion” and “Dawn of the Dead.” (Should I not base the acceptance of my feelings on made up stories? Eh, that’s for another blog.)
What I’m saying is, whatever you’re feeling is normal especially since none of what we’re going through is “normal.” But, don’t let your feelings stop you from getting in the driver seat and really making something of yourself.
We all see that the world is slowly getting back in order, but the world as we knew it will always be a little different now. You’ll adjust. We all will. Really think about what you want out of your future and start doing what you can to reach the goals you set. And don’t be surprised if suddenly a perfect opportunity is at your finger tips.
Don’t be scared, be open.
Don’t resist change, embrace it.
We’re all flipping the page and starting a new chapter, allow yourself the freedom to take each moment as it comes and fully enjoy the fruits of months of stress, anxiety and lack of clarity. We each deserve something positive after such a weirdly dark time.
