New beginnings have a tendency to bring hope, new joy, and new optimism to a person who is starting something fresh. New beginnings can also cause someone to feel the very opposite depending on what it is they are starting anew from. For me, I’m in a period of new beginning in which I am not only reconnecting to who I am but why I am. Now that may sound strange, but knowing who you are is only 1 part of the puzzle in living a fulfilling life, a life in which you can live your dreams and goals with no hesitation or reservation. Another part is knowing why you are the way you are. For me, my why is deeply connected to my beliefs as a Christian that God has placed me here to fulfill a purpose based on the unique gifts and abilities that I’ve been given and have chosen to develop further.
It is never too late to begin anew but (in my opinion), I don’t believe that it’s a good thing to constantly have multiple new beginnings as that may be more of an indicator of a person who doesn’t know who they are; what they want; or gives up on themselves way too easily. Any time you go through a period of new beginning, you must make sure that you have the support that you need to get through it and reach the end result, the achievement of your dream. I’m learning more and more each day how truly important it really is to have the support specific to your needs. Part of this new beginning for me that I will share with all of you today is that I’m beginning something that I originally came to New England to do 11 years ago and never started until now. I’m getting my Master’s Degree. This is a big thing for me, because I gave up on this degree and dream once, at a time in which I forgot who I really am, but not anymore. This goes to show you that I really am practicing what I’m writing when I say it’s NEVER TOO LATE TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS AND GOALS.
