Here in the U.S., it feels like we’re in a national limbo at the moment. Collectively counting the days until this endless presidential election is over, all while hovering between seasons awaiting a fall that’s slow to arrive.
I too feel like I’m personally in limbo. Transitioning from one business I’ve worked hard for years to build to one that’s on a much bigger scale. In the span of a few weeks, I’ve gone from describing myself as a dating coach to a startup founder.
It’s all simultaneously exciting and scary.
One of my personal mantras comes to mind a lot these days:
Nervousness and excitement are two sides of the same coin.
It’s all about your interpretation. Change is always happening, whether we like it or not. And it’s natural to feel nervous, even when that feeling is the result of a change we’ve deliberately sought out.
Thinking this way helps me to feel better and more relaxed when things are in flux. We don’t have to feel comfortable with the uncertainty – we only have to accept that it exists and move forward the best we know how.
Here’s to moving forward!
