Fresh Start


The question isn't who is going to let me; it's who is going to stop me?  ~ Ayn Rand

We all desire something new. Something fresh to get our blood pumping and our imagination running wild. Creative juices flow and our hands itch to make something -anything!- that we can show off.

What is it YOU desire? What is your fresh start? It could be something as simple as a clean house. I spent all last week cleaning and reorganizing. I even took an old truck, repainted it and it now stores all our records and CDs. Perhaps you crave adventure. Try something new. Start simple. Eat at a new restaurant. Visit the north side of town.  Go camping.

Maybe what you want goes a bit deeper. A new career. A new home. A new life. Those things are not impossible. They take a little longer, a bit more commitment than finishing Moby Dick. Whatever it is you're craving, don't doubt yourself or your ability to create the life you crave. You have what it takes, right now, to start fresh.

Want a new career? Do some research. Spend a little time with Google and see what you can find. Maybe you need to go back to school. Maybe you just need to finish knitting those socks and put them up on Etsy. If a new home is calling you, brew some tea and do some virtual travel. Get a taste of the culture, the community by reading all you can about your location of choice. Start cooking French cuisine. Take German at the community college. Find an Indian restaurant and get to know the owners by becoming a frequent customer.

Nothing is impossible. Whatever you desire, wherever you want to be, start with what you have. You  never know where it might take you.
