A Brand-New Start
With the New Year approaching and all of us starting to reflect on the past year, this quote really makes me stop and think: Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.
James Sherman, Ph.D. said these inspiring words in his book, “Rejection”.
To me, these words speak of letting go of the past, forgiving yourself, and vowing to let this day be the start of something new. We all have regrets and things we would do differently if we could. But the future and our ending are things we all have control of and can continue to make what we want. The future is something to continue to be excited about and something we must continue to cultivate.
So, going into this New Year, reflect on the one we are leaving behind. What made you happy? What would you do differently if you could? Did you grow spiritually and emotionally? If not, what are some steps to help you move in that direction? And remember to let go, forgive, and make your brand-new ending.
