You’ve probably already noticed that, of late, people are ‘coming out’ in a myriad of ways having nothing to do with their sexual preference.
People are becoming more authentic with us, more transparent with who they are and how they got to this particular place in their lives.
They’re sharing their back-stories, their triumph over defeat, their recovery from addiction, and their tale of domestic violence.
We hear stories about people who have overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles every day.
And we’re relieved.
We think to ourselves, “Thank G-d I’m not alone; I’m not the only one who went through a depression or a divorce or bankruptcy. Phew!”
Gradually we’re ‘getting it’ about the correlation between who we are in our hearts and what we do in the world.
Slowly we’re accepting that the line between our heads and our hearts must be blurred if we’re to achieve success and truly be happy.
Reluctantly we’re letting go of our former definition of success, and with great relief, we’re embracing the idea that it’s our responsibility to define our success for ourselves, outside the traditional money and power model.
Yes, the line between our head and our heart is blurring.
If we’re to be consistently and sustainably happy, we must learn to cross back and forth between the two. We must learn to do it with ease, trust, and faith that, where it counts, we know exactly what we’re doing.
This is a very good thing because, historically, when our lines were blurred, we were confused, lost, directionless or without focus.
Not this time. This line needed to blur. It needed to be crossed. And you’re the only one who can do it for yourself.
So I leave you with my year-end message:
There is nothing more important than for you to be happy.
There is no feeling more valuable than loving and being loved.
There is no strategy better than believing in yourself.
