Life brings change. Like most folks, initially, I resist. Come on, who wants to leave their comfort zone? But, as I begin to reflect on my drift through life, I know that throwing myself into discomfort and uncertainty forces me to grow. Slowly I let go of the present, inch forward with tentative ideas and eventually embrace a new path.
I’m choosing to start 2010 with an optimistic outlook. I’m ready to follow the path leading to some positive changes.
My friend, Suzanne Egan, posted The Optimist Creed on her January 1, 2010 Facebook entry. Christian D. Larson, an early New Thought (New Age) leader wrote the work in 1912, almost a hundred years ago. I love the promise which remains timely and decided to make the message my personal motto for the year ahead.
