Each day a new Beginning

Sometimes I think I’m the luckiest person in the world. There’s nothing better than having work you really care about. Sometimes I think my greatest problem is lack of confidence. I’m scared, and I think that’s healthy.  ––Jane Fonda—
We each vacillate between feeling confident on some days, lucky on others, and
yet frequently scared on others. It’s very human to vacillate. We need not be anxious
because our emotions refuse to stand still. Changing emotions are part of the process of normal living. And changing emotions reflect an involvement with the moment. Situations do touch us, as they should. They do invite responses,

as they should. And our responses will reveal our emotional involvement, as they should. We can cherish the variety of our emotions. They enrich us. But they may also create problems, if they go unchecked. We need to maintain a balance. Confidence, certainly desirable, can become overconfidence and thus complacency. Confidence needs humility to temper it. Fear makes us cautious, and that’s good; but too much can immobilize us. Being in charge of our emotions makes them work for us. Emotions can energize me and keep me involved with the moment. They can also control me. It’s my decision to be in charge.
