Cheers to New Beginnings
Updated: May 3, 2020
The fear that comes with starting the journey to accomplishing your goals and aspirations can be troublesome. But, to continue learning and growing we must learn how to take on those fears. Michelle Obama wrote in her book, “failure is a thought way before it becomes reality.”
So, when it's time to start something new, no matter how daunting the task may be we must train ourselves to not be our own worst enemy. We have to learn to believe in ourselves despite the hindrances that leave us thinking that we’re not good enough. Which, truth be told, is easier said than done.
This thought hit me hard because I’m so close to entering a new chapter in my life. I have new goals, aspirations, friends, and surroundings that are changing the way I view my day to day. I just recently turned 21, I’m in California by myself, I’ve basically chosen my career path, and every day I’m falling more and more into my authentic self. All in all, it’s very different from what I’m used to, but this is what life is about. Staying stagnant is too monotonous for me.
Cheers to new beginnings.
