Quote:

“(You) can learn nothing except by going from the known to the unknown.”

Claude Bernard

Thoughts:

So very simple. So very true. And not always easy to do. Facing the unknown can be daunting. It can be exciting, challenging, fun, a lark, and it can be frightening as well. Courage does not mean we are not scared. It only means we do it anyway, fear and all.

Gently closing a door on one country and opening a welcoming door in another country can be all of the above. I move into the unknown…..albeit having been a well known almost 30 years ago. I take my time. Not for a year yet. But slowly the thoughts, dreams, ideas, hopes, begin to simmer.

Moving into unknown territory is giving me a renewed lease on life, as my mother was wont to say. I have new energy, new hope, new dreams that I know I can make come true. My wish for you is that you nudge yourself gently to try something new. Change helps shift energy. Being stuck becomes misery. A little step in a different direction can put a smile on your face, a flutter in your heart, and a shiver throughout your body.

Gratitudes:

  • I am grateful I am willing to change
  • I am grateful I have new energy and hope
  • I am grateful for a full and rich personal life these last 26+ years
  • I am grateful for a full and rich professional life
  • I am grateful for all the hundreds of people who have shared in my life and have welcomed me into their life even when it has been a huge risk for them.

Love and hugs, Nancy
