A New Way to Look At Changing Plans

My family has done nearly the exact same thing for every holiday for as long as I can remember.

We bake the same
cookies at Christmas — sugar cookies with candy canes in them, and
Oreos dipped in white chocolate. Years ago, when stores started selling
those cookies in a package, we kept making them, because it was
tradition.

We have the same
family friends over every Thanksgiving, alternating between their house
and ours. The hostess house always makes the turkey and a few other
miscellaneous things. The other family brings the rest.

What Are You Afraid to Lose?

What if you had to leave behind the thing you were most afraid of losing in order to get what you really want?

Of
course, this can’t always be the answer, but just consider it for a
minute. If you were sure your deepest desire would be met, would you
give up the one thing you are most afraid to lose? Would you let go of
your job, your house, your city, your spouse, your picture of the
“perfect life” you always dreamed of?

 

What If You Already Have What It Takes?

I was having a conversation
with a friend recently about how she wants to quit her job. She’s been
feeling less than satisfied for a long time now and wants to do
something like I did. She wants to take a leap to “follow her dreams.”

“Do you think I have what it takes?” she asked.

I
had so much empathy for how she was feeling in that moment. I remember,
before my 50 state road trip, asking myself (and anyone who would
answer) that exact same question: Do I have what it takes?
