What's ahead for you in this new year? The truth is, you and I really have no idea, do we? We may have made plans and have some idea of what could be ahead. But then we know about the best-laid plans, too. And we can't possibly know what all the year will contain.
It's not that we shouldn't make plans. It's more than we should stay flexible and open to change and transition. It just makes our journey so much less stressful. At times it can turn our journey into a real adventure.
I just received a notice that my primary care physician is leaving the practice. I've enjoyed her care for many years now so didn't really like hearing the news. However, in the grand scheme of things, this isn't the most traumatic change I've faced. And the possibility exists that I will like whoever becomes my new primary care physician equally well—or perhaps even better. So I'm trying to keep an open mind and stay flexible as face this transition.
Are there changes ahead for you that awaken your fears? What will you do to face them? I invite you to contact me if you'd like to discuss change, fears and transition.
Meanwhile, Happy New Year! Fasten your seat belt and be ready for the adventure.
