Truer words were never more evident for me. I have done a lot of amazing things in my own life, but almost 2 years following the COVID-19 pandemic and the world shutting down and nearing 2 years since the passing of my beloved grandmother, and I find myself sitting here realizing that I have lost a spark I once found and had. Fear, doubt, worry, and a lack of belief in myself have now set in. The version of me I was even 2 years ago seems like a complete stranger to me. The person I see in the mirror these days feels like a stranger or perhaps someone I once used to know for many years and thought I would never see again.
Change happens when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of change.
I am far too smart to continue to be the only thing holding myself back from the things that I want in life. I found that spark and that confidence once before. I can do it again. It’s time to get to work.
