Every year is a challenge, good times and bad, and we have a choice. Choose to celebrate the good and learn from the bad.
When we learn from an experience, we create meaning. The experience doesn’t decide if it were good or bad. We make that decision. Every moment in our lives we get to choose what happens next. 2022 is here and I choose to celebrate the good times and learn from the rest.
Our choices give us options…
If you’ve ever heard the expression; “You can only play the cards you are dealt”, you know that a card game is about chance. Each time you get a new card or place one on the table, you have new choices.
Life somehow works the same way. We start with who we are, attractive, eloquent, or homely and misunderstood. Choose what you do with the traits/cards you’ve been dealt. Often we allow ourselves to be defined by them and let others choose how we see ourselves.
If we consider what others believe to be beautiful, valuable, or worthy, people like Barbara Streisand, Thandie Newton, Meryl Streep or even Alek Wek would not be seen as who they are today.
Don’t let others play your cards, this is your life, your experiences and you decide where you want to go.
We are poised to step into 2022
Celebrate the good times, learn from the bad and don’t be afraid to pick a card, any card…
“creating agile, purpose-driven thinking”.
