Good morning 2017.... may I take this chance to welcome you in to my life? Let's sit down with a mug of tea and have a quick chat shall we?
You see, I have big dreams for this year and I guess I just wanna check you're cool with supporting me in that.
Yes, I know I've got to put the work in myself and not just talk the talk, I know I can't just play it safe, and yes I understand your 'lessons' may come in many different guises. Don't worry I hear you. I get it.
I guess I just want you to know that I am ready to give you everything I have. Like no other year gone before. I feel a deep connection with you and just knowing that you have got my back would really, really help, you know?
What's that you say... 'Please don't worry'? I try not to but it's hard sometimes as everything is so unknown and it's scary to take that leap... Sorry what? I do accept 'what is', and i'm learning to 'let go of what was', but it's the faith that sometimes gets tough.
Would you like more tea? No sorry, I wasn't trying to sweeten you up (promise) ;-)
Ahhhh ok so I get it. I get it. You've made your point.
Wow... this is deep. To be honest I hadn't expected this level of honesty in our first conversation, I only met you a few hours ago after all!
So, you can only give to me by degree of what I am willing to give to you. So, if I trust you 100% then you have got my back 100%.
It's simple?? ...yeah right! 2017 it looks like you're a bit of a character already, but I think I like you. Though I am not sure I could handle you for the longer term.... a year maybe... ha
Ok i'm in dude. I'm glad we had this time together to talk.
Now, let's go out into the world and do this thing!!
(Oh and please just make sure you put your mug in the dishwasher when you've finished your tea).
