March 2015 Editor's Note: After Winter, Must Come Spring
Change is good. Change is great! Change is something you can not be afraid of when it shows up in your life. Why? Because, change is something that you can count on happening. One day, I sat listening to Lauryn Hill's classic, "Everything is Everything." "What is meant to be will be. After winter, must come spring. Change, it comes eventually." Many of us, including myself at times, get comfortable living in a safe zone. This area feels comfortable, and it is not horrible place to be. However, it also is not an amazing place to stay either. As time passes, you must continue to evolve. Take risks, be afraid to fail, and be prepared to keep it moving. Everyday that you wake up is another opportunity to do better, be better, and live your best life. Do not take it for granted! Your plan A may not always work, there may be a monkey wrench thrown across your original strategy, but just remember everything happens for a reason. Unify your purpose and keep your ending goal in mind.
With a catharsis of unification toward your dreams, you will move to a different beat, and there will not be anything that can rain on your parade. Stride on through these last layers of winter, keep it cute, and let's celebrate oncoming spring traffic.
Say yes to change!
