Beginning (Again)

Trust the process

I’ll normally do my best to not trust a process or admit that there are many processes that work. It seems like each time I trust one, the game changes and I have to shift gears, approaches and methods.

Most of the time, I feel like it’s best to stay nimble and expect my actions to yield different results each time.

However, one constant I’ve found (and been reminded of since the beginning of this school year) is the process of beginning. It sounds simple, but often our biggest obstacle is beginning something. In the end, it’s always worth it.

We reflected last year on What it Takes to Begin and the search for an answer continues to be one of the most important things I can do each day.
