“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”― Edith Lovejoy Pierce
This is the beginning of a new year. A fresh start. A time to make changes.
For this year, I will explore the pursuit of greater courage.
I feel the last three years have been dedicated to discovering myself. Finding out who I am outside the walls of the comfort zone of my home.
A life outside of Florida. A life outside of the United States.
Discovering who I am as an individual is an easier feat when I am in an environment of unfamiliarity. Things that I always knew as happiness aren’t necessarily my happiness anymore. Priorities change.
I believe that I have changed my entire life’s path, by dipping my toes into small ponds over the last three years. I have discovered new loves for so many different things that have captured my imagination.
I feel I cannot personally grow by taking the same action that I’ve always taken.
This new book is dedicated to my continuance of growth as an individual.
Opening my mind to new things, things that I often consider frightening because of it’s unfamiliarity.
I find that the spirit to try new things is synonymous with the spirit of self-improvement.
