It’s amazing what a New Year brings, but this morning things seem pretty much the same.
The New Year can either bring out the best or worst in us, because we may put a lot of pressure on ourselves to succeed for that year and although most of us may be well intentioned, things may not always work out like that.
I’m all for change and believe change can help us move forward with our lives, but usually change need to be realistic if they are going to work. I believe a different perception needs to happen for things to change; to worry less, tackle more, so that change becomes more achievable.
As soon as I woke up this morning my thoughts were with Dan, who has been home since May of last year. There will be uncertainty, as he makes the transition back into university life at the end of this month.
Anyone settling back into university life will be a challenge, but any challenge or change can be hard and it’s usually our fears that stop us. I believe we can learn to change our perceptions, and work through trauma.
Although Daniel is slotting into his old life again, he has a new set of personal circumstances to work through, which will take some adjusting, but with a positive attitude, I know he can.
