Make a Fresh Start

I love when I open my book of daily meditations and the day’s reflection is so spot-on it seems as if the pages rearranged themselves overnight to ensure I read the one most pertinent to what’s on my mind.

Today’s meditation is exactly what I needed to remind me that not all projects or adventures are going to work out, especially at a time when I’m beginning so many new things in my life at the same time.

Even though we know these things somewhere in our heart, sometimes we just need a little reminder from the universe.

“Sometimes we need to start over – in work, love, in our place of residence, in creating our lives. Sometimes we have to start over again when we don’t want to, didn’t plan on it, and don’t think it’s fair.

We may end a relationship, move, start a new job, start a new career, or begin an entirely different part of our lives, a part so different we don’t recognize it as being connected to the earlier ones. It’s new. We’re new. Life is new. We’re starting over again.

Sometimes it feels like we’re starting from scratch. While we may feel a sense of excitement about this new beginning, we may also harbor a sense of dread. Not again. Not one more time. I can’t. I don’t want to. The reaction is understandable. We become tired, frightened. We feel uncertain.

Honor all your feelings, all your emotions. Remember all your lessons. Clear the way to the heart. Then make a decision.

It’s time for a fresh start.”
