BEING BRAVE IN 2019
My new addiction for 2019, TEDx Talks. I prefer to make New Year’s Addictions in place of Resolutions. Addictions are harder to break. With my new addiction, that I am loving by the way, a commonality has appeared. FEAR, the insidious little word that causes nothing but trouble. Therefore, I have decided to put this newest addiction to good use and BE BRAVE!
My BRAVE moment for 2019. What I mean by Being Brave? Being Afraid and Courageous at the same time. In October of 2018, the Salon I had been operating my business out of could no longer sustain its current overhead. Long story short I was downsized! So, I put my intention of becoming more mindful and cultivating mindset into play. I realized that I hadn’t suffered a setback, my time with the people at a place I loved had served its purpose in my life! A new stone lay before me.
I feel there are many stones placed for us to step onto, that can lead and guide us if we Brave the moment and place our foot on the stone. Between you and me sometimes that stone can feel like a boulder!
Here’s the Brave part, uncertainty! Yet, the truth that I know is, success is never without failure. Thomas Edison was quoted by a journalist, when asked about his lack of success in not achieving the application of electricity into reality at the time, Edison “No I don’t feel like I have failed. I now know 10,000 ways a light bulb doesn’t work.” Once we step, we may stumble, but stumbling is not stopping!
I am so excited to share with you that I have found my stone. I am standing on it as we speak. I look forward to sharing this adventure with you in my next post. Where The Step Stone Takes Me!
What stones do you want to step to? “Many of life’s failures are experienced by people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas Edison.
