Every day is a fresh start. Not sure if you keep a journal or diary, but every entry is often on a clean page.
Yesterday, as I was writing my entry, I realized I get a fresh start not just with my journal but my life.
I pondered this and was so grateful that I can write my future. My life is like a story, today, this moment I can change the story. I don't have to wait till tomorrow but can change right this instant.
Overweight, you can change how you eat or drink, you can decide to walk or exercise.
Business not as good as you wanted, you can make changes, decide to use direct mail, or email your clients, or hold a client appreciation party, or purchase some leads, or simply follow up with your sphere.
You can choose how the story will go, how much effort you will make to change the situation you are in that you do not like. It is up to you, all it takes is accepting responsibility for where you are and then making a change. It is about not making excuses or blaming someone else or something for where you are. It is stepping up and picking up the pen and making a decision to write a different ending. You have the power, no one else to rewrite your story. You choose how to act or respond, not react.
You have the freedom to act, to change the ending of your story, to write the next chapter. Want to travel, all you need to do is to book your trip, change is not hard, you just have to focus and take the next step.
When I walked my camino, I realized life is simple, it is just doing the next thing, taking the next step. We can paralyze ourselves with fear and remain where we are, or we can write an adventure, a quest for life.
How are you going to write your story? Me, I am grateful I have the opportunity to write my story and do what I want. It may take a little longer, or take a different path than how I thought, but it is always my choice how I approach life and for that I am extremely grateful how ever hard or emotional that may be. I will live my adventure and enjoy it.
