Week 14: Fresh Start

The sun will come out tomorrow.  Tomorrow is a new day!  Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  Fresh starts are what I’m all about these days!  Besides the fact of making a new start in going back to school and leaving my banking career, I’ve recently been faced with a ton of other decisions, which once made, will be a whole other fresh start. Maybe I’ll be starting a new job, definitely will be going to a new school, and may be making a huge move, geographically speaking.  Starting over can be scary, nerve-wracking, intimidating, and all kinds of negative things that would make some stray away from giving it a try.  Or, they could be exciting, up lifting, motivating, and all the things you ever wanted.  I’m hoping for the later, though I feel a lot of the former when faced with decisions that have me changing everything.  I think most of the fear that comes with change comes from the unknowns and the “what ifs” of life.  Once you have that all figured out (easier said than done), then the “fresh start” can be a really great thing — you just have to work to get there.  So this week, maybe I’ll take a more simple approach.  With everything seeming so big and complicated in my life right now, my brain has been on overload, and it would be a welcomed change.  Besides, spring is finally all around me, and there are so many wonderful natural things that are making a fresh start of their own.  It would be great to get out there and take some pictures of them.

So I’ll leave you with one of the best “fresh starts” I’ve ever seen.  Waking up extremely early while on vacation to catch the sunrise definitely has its benefits, especially while you’re at the beach.  I’ve always loved these photos.  The clouds were in a way that you don’t often see at sunrise, and with the surf bubbling up, it made me feel like I couldn’t tell where the water ended and the sky began.  Can’t wait to get back there.  Love you, beach.

Never be afraid to fall apart because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along.
