“There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming.”
– Shauna Niequiest
Preparing. Gathering. Detoxing.
Shedding old ideas and attitudes like a skin.
Catching myself when my mind starts to romanticise the past.
Telling myself to breathe when I start to hyperventilate about the future.
Editing out what I won’t be carrying into 2017.
Thought it would be good to get a head start…
“I’ll tell you what freedom is to me. No. Fear.”
– Nina Simone

“Whatever it is, if it doesn’t make you happy, walk away, give it away to someone else who wants it. Let it be their next dream; let it flee from you. You’re emptying out your limitations when you do that. Then you have room to grow, to allow magnificent things to fill the vacuum of those seemingly empty places. When you hold onto yesterday, when you hold onto dead and dying adventures, you have no room in your box for greatness.”
