Hey, people. Many thanks for all the feedback through your comments. I feel so loved and wanted, LOL! Who knows, maybe I’ll have a huge fan base soon. Now there’s a cheery thought. 😀
So, today it’s all about new beginnings. Every now and then, one stagnates, gets stuck in a rut, runs round and round in circles without getting anywhere or achieving anything. We’ve all been there at least once, no? But then something shakes up the monotony and brings in fresh air, breaks the stalemate and helps us get out of the dead zone. It could be a person, a message you read, a picture you see, or even some poignant music that resonates in your soul and opens your eyes to what your previously blinkered vision wouldn’t let you take in. Sometimes the best things in life happen when you least expect them, and the help you need arrives in such a way you’d never have guessed.
For me it’s been the exploration of my inner mindscape, gazing inwards and taking a good long look at what I see. It’s not always pretty, and let me tell you, it can be painful or scary or whatever sometimes, but it really does help. You can make peace with the past so it doesn’t hold you back anymore, stop worrying overmuch about the future, and just live in the moment. Be grounded in the present, here and now. What’s done is done and nothing can reverse it. Gonna let that keep you from maximising your potential and enjoying life to the fullest? I think not.
Embracing new beginnings can be tough. I mean, you’re taking risks and putting yourself out there, right? Anything can happen. Get it? Anything can happen. Make a new friend, reconnect with an old and dear one, give yourself a treat, take a leap of faith, and let yourself go. Do anything but shrink back from new and uncharted or unfamiliar territory. Yes you may get hurt, things might go awry, but what if they don’t? What if your life is suddenly infused with vibrant colours and sights and sounds that take your breath away? What if you experience more joy and love and contentment than you thought this world had to offer? Every day is a new beginning. Do what you can, when you can. Do anything but nothing. Take that next step. It’ll be worth it.
Be in tune with your mind, listen to your heart, and let your instincts guide you. Know who and what you are, be at peace with yourself, and avoid negative vibes/energy. Laugh and love and experience as much as possible. Most importantly, let the knowledge that there’s always help to be found when you need it overcome the fear that you might not be able to handle or make it. You can. You can do anything. Anything at all. Remember, “Just when the caterpillar didn’t know what would happen next, it turned into a butterfly.”
