Monday Motivation: new beginnings are ready when you are

fork in the road
Every choice is a sort of crossroad; they aren’t all big and dramatic. Continue as before? Begin again?

You can start over any time you choose.  Sometimes, things go wrong consistently enough that you have to evaluate the best course of action.  Consider walking away as a viable option.

I’m not sure if it’s the unknown prospects of the future or the current comfort of the familiar that prevents us from starting anew, even when we know it’s quite probably the best thing we could do.  Still, many times the fear of either starting or letting go paralyzes us into a remaining in an uncomfortable situation.

But only for as long as we choose.

Every moment presents a brand new possibility. Every minute, every hour, every day. Quite simply, choose again. Choose a new thought, a new path, a new action, a new reaction, etc.

Choose again.

Don’t let the peaks and valleys of the past keep you from moving forward. There will be new peaks and valleys. It won’t all be glittery and gold, but it will all be worth it if you find meaning in every situation life presents you.

Beginnings and endings are really the same thing. A lot of people choose Mondays to start a regimen. Today, think about all the endings in your life and imagine the possibilities for new beginnings. What will you do?

Let go of holding on. Onward and upward!
