I’ve started something brand new and scary this week: getting up at 4:30 AM to write morning pages, do yoga, and generally set a positive spin on the day. The reason it scares me is that it’s not just a wake-up time – it’s a lifestyle. I never thought of myself before as the kind of person who gets up at 4:30 to do yoga. I wonder what’s next – crunchy granola and green tea? Oops, I did have a cup last night … sigh There goes the neighborhood. I have nothing against crunchy granola types. I just have never considered myself one. This is a brand new me, and a brand new way of being/living/thriving. I think it’s certainly a positive move, but it did get me thinking about the fears we have about changing, and how sometimes, they go beyond fear of failure/ fear of success/fear of the thing itself.
This? Is a brand new fear! Fun!
