Change is never easy. For most people it’s easier to stay in a current state of misery than it is to branch out and try something new, something that they might not be good or successful at initially, something that they might fail at.
But once we make a choice to make a change for the better – to try something different it can be exhilarating. Even while experiencing a few bumps and dips on the road to greatness.
“As I walked, I realized that for the first time in my life, I was where I alone chose to be, doing what I alone chose to do on my own timetable and terms. Since it was my decision to come to Malaga, I – and only I – was completely responsible for every experience I had. There was no room for complaining or doing anything that would take me away from the full experience I came to Malaga to enjoy.”
~ A New Language for Life p 13
The joy of the journey – the choice to take responsibility for a new experience can be freeing and more wonderfully fulfilling than you can possibly imagine by simply taking action and taking that first step of faith toward a new life.

It’s easy to get caught up in the negative thoughts but strive for positivity and stay strong – optimism and persistence will win out above all else.

- What have you always dreamed of doing but put off because you thought you couldn’t?
- What do you want to do but haven’t out of fear of failure?
