I wrote something about this on Instagram and was overwhelmed by the support I received and I thought I would share it with the larger community here. 2015 was a difficult year because I lost family members and had other personal challenges (don’t even ask). It was also the year that I thought long and hard about how past hurts had made me more reclusive and less open to new friendships – I could have stayed that way, but in 2015, I made an effort not to and that’s what I am most proud of. As the years go by, I tend to label the years- 2014 was the year of massive change because we moved homes; 2011 the year when I went to back to get another graduate degree and so on. 2015 will always be the year that I learnt to let go of old emotional baggage. How would you label 2015? There’s a Jack Canfield quote that I keep remembering, ” Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” And that applies to everything, doesn’t it? Fear of getting hurt, fear of failure, fear of getting what you want (or not). If we could let go of fear, think of all we can achieve! However you decide to label 2015, let’s make 2016 the year we tap into our awesomeness! I am not sure if I’ve shared this link but here it is again because it’s a great article on rewiring our brains to let go of negativity. I would love to hear about your 2015 and what you learnt!
