Try On the New

New seasons of life, new opportunities, new doors to walk through are often what we pray for; yet when they arrive, we sometimes quake in our boots. (See my raised hand.)

But as my late mother told me in our final conversation before her passing, “Sometimes you have to lose to gain.” 

Growth = movement, and progress requires letting go of what’s in your hand now to take hold of the blessings that await.

When you feel at peace that you’re moving in the right ways and at the appointed time, go ahead and trust yourself – summon your courage and leap. 

As one of my favorite quotes suggests, your next-level joy is on the other side of your fear of the unknown – and your purpose-driven path may be there, too:

“What if I fall? Oh, but my darling, what if you fly?”
