I’ve been thinking a lot lately about fresh starts and new beginnings. For everyone it looks a bit different and as you’ve probably noticed, even the blog got a fresh start in the last couple weeks – updated colors and fonts and layout. It’s just feeling so crisp and clean and like the right step to take for the new beginning I’m looking for around here.
But my life is getting a fresh start too…a new job (fingers crossed it’s coming soon!), ridding myself of people who no longer need to be around and inviting in those people who do, a fresh approach to blogging and business, and this is really only the start.
All of this change leads me to ask – How many times can we start over? How many fresh starts and new beginnings can we have?
The answer is simple…
As many as we would like and as many as we need.
Each beginning can signify a new chapter in our lives, a new opportunity for growth and to learn. It also usually marks the end of a different chapter and the close of a lesson, sometimes a positive one and sometimes one that was a bit harder to face.
But this process happens over and over again throughout our lives.
Right now, I’m finding myself closing another chapter and starting a new one. The pages are clean, the pen is ready and the story is waiting to be written. Quite honestly, this is the best I have felt in a really long time and as I’m also facing some of the hardest financial lessons of my life, I can’t help but be optimistic for what lies ahead of me.
It’s a great feeling, isn’t it?
When was the last time you started over?
