New Beginnings and being the change…….
What are some new beginnings for you? A new career, a new home, new friendships, a new romantic relationship, a new website. How do we do with new beginnings? Do we welcome and embrace them or fear them?
The two major emotions are fear and love, so what emotion do your life changes come from? Remember, we get to chose which emotion we operate from. The emotion of fear sparks feelings of anger, judgment, anxiety, sadness, jealousy, feeling less then. The emotion of love sparks feelings of happiness, joy, satisfaction, peace, harmony, equanimity. Of course, I only mentioned a few of the fear and love by-product feelings to give you an example.
Is each new beginning an obstacle or an opportunity for growth? I personally have had several new beginnings since 2009. I have moved 15 times from 2009 to present moment. With each new city comes new beginnings. (I travel light and there is freedom in that lightness). New friendships, new town to explore, new restaurants, meeting new interesting people, new opportunities for growth and adventure. Trusting in the beauty of the unknown and going with the flow……this is where the magic begins for each new beginning.
In my opinion, new beginnings signify change and change signifies new adventures and since this new website invites each one of us to be the change, then I am in appreciation for all my new beginnings for they have led me to this present moment. A new beginning can give you another chance at life and living, and it all depends on how we chose to look at each new beginning? Do we look at each new beginning with “eyes wide open” and love in our hearts or with fear and angst of what next?
So if you are ending an old way of thinking, an old pattern or belief system, or a relationship that has been stuck for a while and neither of you want to make the first move to end it, consider that each new beginning comes from some other beginnings end. Why not step out of your comfort zone and create your “new” story from every beginning. Make the shift to a new way of life and experience the joy of living!
To change your world, you must change yourself…………Be the change.
Remember, may the possibilities of today excite us all!
About this picture: This picture was taken in New York City this past July honoring our girlfriend Anne’s 50th birthday - the city where so many new beginnings have emerged from. We are the 3 girls in the background with our arms in the air. Like our girlfriend Windy says, WHOOP, WHOOP!
