Today, New Year’s Day, I find myself looking back as well as forward. 2012 arrives full of unanswered questions and glimmering potentials. Who am I today? What do I want for my tomorrow? What am I done with? What calls my name now?
As I stand at this cross roads I see that there is no getting around it. Whatever I choose will mean saying good-bye to something that has meant a great deal to me. Choosing is as much about saying, “I’m out,” as it is about saying, “I’m in!” Every ‘yes’ contains countless ‘no’s’ that make it possible.
I’ve been riding the fence between ‘in’ and ‘out’ for years now. Clearly, those days are over. It’s time to commit… time to let go of the safety rail and trust the balance and strength I’ve spent a lifetime cultivating. Today I have the opportunity to use what I know in a meaningful way. Am I willing to step into this moment?
