The last time I posted a blog was a fictitious letter from my dog to me. I had no idea at the time that he would pass away nine days later, and it truly broke my heart. Let me be clear, he was almost 15 years old and had lived an amazing life…it was time. But it was the first time I truly experienced tangible grief in my life from “someone” close to me dying. Part of my coping meant I took a break from writing. Then I forgot why I wasn’t writing. Then I forgot to write. Then it faded as something that I used to do….and then I’d write once in a while and forget to post to the site. Yet, every time the renewal came up, I kept the site, knowing in my heart that one day, I was going to start writing again.
So here is to New Beginnings. Here is to starting fresh, celebrating the past and anticipating the future with joy. Here is to launching anew, a new chapter and new goals. Here is to continuing to evolve into the person I am becoming. Here is to being Brave.
If we are not growing and changing, we are decaying. There have been lessons and stories, choices and decisions…. Today is a new day, and now is when we go from here. Where is your “here”? Join me. Come with me on a journey….discover what the best self might be. Struggle with balance. Challenge yourself further than you think possible. Be inspired. Love. Your. Life.
