What opportunities will you open up to in 2018?

This past Fall we said goodbye to California and moved to Mexico. Oh, and got married, too. For a person like myself with ADHD, the amount of details was overwhelming. Ordinarily, I would have said there is no way I could manage all the research involved with selling most of our possessions and our house, getting visas, planning a drive, and all the other details.

Yet, I did it.

We had decided to make this move a while ago, and now was the time. I gave up what I thought I was capable of and did what I needed to make the decision a reality.

Mexico is wonderful. But it is very different from California. Plus, we had to discover places to shop, eat, get things fixed. We needed to find doctors, dentists, lawyers, and friends. Think all that was challenging? Really, not so much. I know I am more capable than I thought I was. I can do without some of the things I thought were necessary (like Trader Joe’s), and I can learn just about any new thing with time and practice.

Perhaps you are holding some limiting stories about your capabilities and options based on your past or other people’s opinions.

The new year is a good time to re-evaluate your life. What from 2017 do you want to let go of? What will you develop further?

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
