Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be.
New Beginnings have this amazing butterfly effect on me. On focusing on New Beginnings in the coming New Year 2014, I cant help but think of how the turn of this date from 2013 to 2014 is so so new. It is, in all ways a new year, a new chance, a new experience, a new Beginning…which holds potential to so much more.
There is a certain charm to starting something new and fresh. The feeling is great and the suspense of how its all going to turn out keeps you hooked.
I still think back to my school days and remember the happy butterflies in my stomach just before the new school year began. The smell of new books, the feel of a new classroom, the new faces, the new friends, the new teachers, the new Knowledge. There was so much New to look forward to then. And to this day, I still get a certain high with all the New Beginnings in and around this world and my life.
As this high of the New continues to engulf my being, I embrace it with arms wide open. The sun shines newly everyday. The Moon glimmers newly everyday. The stars twinkle newly everyday. Then why can’t we SHINE newly Everyday?
There is new adventure out there everyday. There are new waves of amazing beauty and happiness everyday. Why aren’t we swimming in these happy waves everyday?
We can Shine! We can Swim! We most certainly can. I know I make the conscious effort to do so everyday. Here is how I do it and will keep doing it in the coming new year…..and you can too. Easy peasy –
3 Positive Ways to Have New Beginnings everyday in the New Year:
- When you awake, stretch out your arms, take a big yawn and remind yourself “today is a NEW day. Today, this moment, will never come back. Today is all brand new. What NEW am I going to create today”
- When you get stuck in a not so positive situation, which happens to most of us regularly, me included, take 5 NEW Deep breaths. While you breathe again remind yourself “New positive IN, old negative OUT”.
- Sleep at night by letting go of the day you have had. Tell yourself, whats gone is gone and never coming back. That negative feeling, that stress, that tiredness, that dilemma, that inertia…let it all go and tell yourself “tomorrow I begin Anew”
By having New Beginnings everyday, you are paving the way for immense happiness in your life. You are allowing the good the positive to enter your life and not leaving room for any negative.
“So many fail because they don’t get started – they don’t go. They don’t overcome inertia. They don’t begin.” W. Clement Stone
How many of us have fallen in the trap of not even beginning, cause we are afraid. Afraid of failing, afraid of getting out of our comfort zones, afraid of change, afraid of the unknown.
But let me ask you one question- How would you know what Beautiful New Surprises are in store for you if you Never make the effort to Begin?
We can’t make all our dreams come true if we don’t Begin Anew.
Now you have to decide- Either you choose to have New Beginnings everyday and fulfill your dreams or Be trapped in a vicious negative spiral. What you decide paves the way for your future…Bright or Dark depends on your choice.
“The secret to a rich life is to have more beginnings than endings.” David Weinbaum
With one such Beautiful New Beginning shining on the horizon in the form of the NEW Year…we have yet another chance to make it right. To start making positive changes within us we only thought of upto now, to start doing all those things we never thought were possible, to start taking chances in life, to start working on our BIG dreams…..simply to Start New…..
