IF NEW BEGINNINGS ARE SO GREAT? WHY ARE THEY SO HARD?

I remember when I got my first break up – my head was twisting and I just wanted to go away for a very long time, I wanted to start all over but that never happened. When I opened my eyes the next day, I felt the same ache in my chest and everybody still remembered my name and asked me what happened between me and my ex. I used to crave new beginnings so much. Any time something went wrong in my life, I wanted to start again. It was a new beginning, I just want to start again like I didn’t have a past. Honestly, I’m more of a stable life type of girl these days.

How do you know it’s a new beginning?

Change begins at the end of your comfort zone

Roy T Bennet

New beginnings can mean several good things. Imagine the start of a new relationship, the celebration of a new job, or moving to a new city. These are all really good things but a new beginning can also come from a pretty dark place. It could be the loss of a parent or child, the loss of a job, the end of a relationship. Every day, life happens and we really don’t have much control over it. There’s always a fresh start happening here or there. I guess it’s part of the things we should learn to accept in life.

Surely, you may not even know when your new beginning starts and if you’re like me, you’re probably asking for a break because they just won’t stop rolling in one after the other. Yes, life goes on really fast for us and we don’t always get the chance to catch up. To be honest with you, I don’t think I’ve gotten some time to breathe since 2019. All I’m trying to say is that new beginnings happen all the time.

The Good and The Bad of New Beginnings

One of the best things about new beginnings is Growth. No matter how much life tosses, turns, raises, and puts you down, one thing that is sure to happen, you will grow from it. No really, think about any time that some form of change happened in your life. Did you grow? You learned to do things better or learned that something was the best thing for you. I know for sure that I have learned some really amazing things in 26 years. I even wrote about it here.

The worst thing for me is redirecting and refocusing. I have tried for the longest time to be in control of as much as I can. Let me just tell you right now, if you are like me, ABORT MISSION. It is a totally bad idea to do that. What happens when change comes is that you need to stop and try to control it again. Nothing is for sure and there’s no handbook for this life. All we’ve got is right now, with a pool of our past and a splash of future plans.

Dear friend, this is where I drop some words of wisdom, right? I’ll let you be the wise person you are today. It’s been a DAY and you, my dear, need some rest. Let me know what other good or bad sides you’ve experienced with new beginnings.
