The year is wrapping up and I think I speak for a lot of you when I say, oh boy, what a year it has been. For me, it was filled with a lot of change, growth, unexpected adventures, hard conversations, many hours of reflection, and lots of time spent outside of my comfort zone – all which I welcomed with open arms. If you read my column regularly, you know how much I believe change is a great catalyst to evolving.
In thinking about the message that I wanted to end the year on, I wanted it to be positive, honest, forward, and hopefully change your perspective. So I leave you with this: Choose your hard.
What does that even mean? Every day we are faced with a lot of choices and opportunities. Some of them seem so unfathomably hard to explore that we may shy away entirely. I can’t take that spin class because I’m so out of shape that it’ll be too hard. I can’t have that tough conversation because I’m not sure how it’ll end. I can’t start my own business because I don’t even know where to start. I can’t KonMari (Marie Kondo) my place because I don’t have time to organize.
Does any of that sound familiar? If so, I want you to consider the other side of what seems hard…
