More Love, Less Fear in 2022
December 31, 2021
For last year’s words belong to last year’s language. And next year’s words await another voice.
-T.S. Eliot
“A vitally important characteristic of a heart-centered leader is the ability to make more choices that are motivated by love instead of fear,” writes Nancy Rosenow in the book, Art of Leadership: Leading Early Childhood Organizations“Fear and love are always at odds with each other. It’s very hard to be truly loving when fear is in control.

Almost every day I find myself confronted with the choice to take a deep breath and move through fear into a more loving space, or ride the wave of fear into negativity and doubt…

When I notice that fear has been pushing me around, I get very still and give myself a big dose of love and self-forgiveness. I remind myself that one of my deepest intentions – not just as a leader, but as a human being – is to operate as much as possible from a place of love and acceptance…Often I’ll say out loud to myself, “I choose to be loving right now. Love is more powerful than fear.”

Best wishes for a New Year filled with more love!
