This season’s magazine is all about taking chances and expanding our horizons. Sometimes we choose to change, and other times we’re forced to by the world around us. It might
feel as if we spend most of our time on what we have to do and very little on what we want to do, particularly during the current coronavirus pandemic. However, changing our ways can lead to opportunities.
If you’re cooking for yourself, consider the delight of trying something new. One of our authors, Kay Tracy, explains food from Iceland. Too outside your comfort zone? Brian and Patricia Dake give a recipe for Spicy Asian Chicken with Green Beans & Mushrooms that you can make at home. It’s all about finding the kind of newness that makes you happy to grow.
If you don’t quite understand, try following along with humorist Tim Reynolds as he explains the difference between chance and risk, with examples from his own life. Another author, Michele Roger, discusses the peril of starting her music business. Really, we’re always looking for ways to make the most of our world. So, pull out a tarot deck to expand your creativity, or pull out the treadmill desk to buckle down to work. No matter how you branch out, know that we’re all searching for the right way to travel the roads of life and find our rewards along the way.
And, if you think everyone else has it all figured out, Kristin Battestella talks us through the reality of imposter syndrome. Even when you have it together, the hardest person to convince is often yourself.
