I have been in this world a little over half a century and looking back on my life I can say that this quote carries much truth.
Having gone through so much change these last few months, I found myself dancing with fear and worry as much as I danced with trust. My dance with trust has been much more enjoyable and at the end trust prevailed.
One example I can give is my new endeavor as a Spanish interpreter. Finding my way around in this great big city of Atlanta filled with so many more highways and cars than where I previously lived was a bit intimidating. Yet, I haven’t gotten lost, nor have I been late to an assignment. And, I’m seeing all the beauty this city has to offer.
Change can be so terrifying that staying where we are seems easier and safer than walking through what we perceive to be so insurmountable. Change comes whether we’re ready for it or not—or as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said, “The only constant is change.”
I have come to a place in my life in which I welcome change. Reflecting on my life helps me to embrace the change and trust that in time its purpose will be revealed. I will discover a little more of who I am, transcend what has held me back, and trust that the Universe will continue to provide me with everything that I need for the journey toward my true self.
Everything I have experienced, thus far, gives me the courage and the strength to let go of my fear and worry and to keep trusting and believing that things are not as scary after all.
