Happy Monday, or whatever Monday you choose.
After everything falls apart, remove the rubble and build upon a new foundation. There will always be change and some modicum of chaos in our lives. If you remain grounded, your foundation will stand. You can always rebuild. Do not fall in love with your creation, but with the creative process. As I walked through the Night Garden, I noticed many people taking pictures. People can become obsessed with the image of their life and forget to live. The garden had sounds, scent, and tactile experiences but many people only focused on the visual and not the entirety of the offering. Are you forgetting to experience all that life has to offer? Are you building a "safe" foundation out of fear. Trust yourself and allow yourself to be vulnerable to what life offers. Build your foundation using all available materials.
What's next? Opening a door is a metaphor for transformation. You can go through and go forward or stay where you are. You can achieve many new things if you decide to open the door. There will be no fairies like the Night Garden, but with hard work and perseverance, the results may seem like magic. Suspend the disbelief about what is possible in your life. Set big audacious goals. To paraphrase my friend, Lisa Brooks from Lisa Brooks Management, if you want to make a million, set your goal for a billion. Children do not limit themselves to what is possible. I wish you to remember what it was like to be a child and find your sense of wonder for 2019. You do not have to wait for a particular date. Start now.
