What's out there beyond the horizon? You have to set off on a journey to find out.
Next week sees the NHS reforms becoming a reality, with the PCTs coming to an end and the newly formed CCGs taking over commissioning.  Staff have been through a long period of uncertainty, and some have faced redundancy, others have roles in new structures.  If only we had a crystal ball to see what the future holds - but we don't - so what can we do to make ourselves feel more secure?
Susan Jeffers, who wrote "Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway" also wrote "Embracing Uncertainty" - a book that promises to show us how to achieve peace of mind as we face the unknown.
She talks of three realities:
1. The Only certainty is that life is uncertain!
2.Once you surrender to the fact that you are unable to control the uncertainty, you will, at last, be able to breathe a sigh of relief!
3. A "deep" acceptance that life is uncertain opens the door to a powerful way of living.

Coaching last week with someone whose main priority in life is being in control, I thought about the tyranny of that position, and the impossibility of being able to control everything around us.  When we give ourselves up to the fact that things will change, and instead of trying to control it, look for ways to make it work to our benefit, we are released to find possibilities.

Ambrose Redmoon said: "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear." 

If we are paralysed by the "what if" we will not be able to grasp the potentially amazing opportunities that lie ahead in the new NHS world.

So...as Anatole France says "To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream. Not only plan, but also believe."
Go to it!
