Nothing is so certain or constant as change – and changes are coming to my life: more rapidly than I expected and possibly, more rapidly than I would like them to. Nevertheless, there it is.
First, now that my publisher is writing again, there is less work for me, and that could translate to very considerably less. That, of course, impacts my income significantly.
How do I feel about that? I don’t know yet. Will I have to budget more carefully? Cut down on my planned vacation time? I honestly have no idea at this point. What I do know is that I have to meet, accept and deal with every change, including this one, with a happy attitude. I know that all change is good. If I embrace it and work with it, it will be full of blessings.
I have a history of fear when it comes to work, income and money. The biggest change I can make is changing my attitude about that – knowing that I have an abundance of all that I need.
What I also know is that change seems to come in groups. Already I have been changing how I see hiking. I am looking for bigger challenges – climbs and scrambles. I want to exert myself and test my limits. I find that I am really enjoying our group hikes. And to think that only a few years ago almost every hike I did was a solo trek.
I feel myself opening more to people – and possibly even a relationship. I never expected to write that – never again, I said. That doesn’t mean that I am looking for one, but I am open to possibility.
The present is here – and the moment I write that it is already the past. The future is here, always here – right here and right now. And I say “yes” to what it has to offer.
Yes – my word.
