“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke

Helen Keller said, “Life is either a great adventure, or nothing.”

It can only be a great adventure if we still our insidious self-doubts and learn how to relinquish control.

Planning and preparation have a place, to be sure, and persistence pays off, but the kind of control I’m talking about is the kind that cannot trust—or is unwilling to try.

There is tremendous power to be found under the rock of dashed expectations: surrender carries freedom in its pocket, turning an anxious attitude into an adventurous one.

As the world roils amidst political flotsam and jetsam, I see trust as the only available life-jacket, and am counting my blessings.

Happy 2019, everyone.

May it be a grand adventure for you, your loved ones and the world!
