Begin again; renew your Spirit. Renewal can be a difficult process, but it’s worth it. Renewal is a time to reflect on the past and look to the future with hope. However, renewal has a deeper meaning than this; it refers not just to your physical body but also to your mind and spirit. You may think of yourself as an old person who cannot change anymore. That’s true if you believe it! However, if you want a new life, then you must begin again. Start by setting aside time for yourself and then take action.
Begin again; renew your faith. There are some things you can’t get back, and there are some things that you can’t live without. Forgiveness is not just the virtue of saints. It’s a power that you have and that you need. Don’t let fear stop you from doing what you know is right. Let go of the past and start over again. If you’ve made mistakes, learn from them and move on with your life. Don’t let them define who you are or ruin the rest of your life because of them. Be smart about it though, don’t make the same mistakes again.
Begin again; renew your commitment to you and to those you pledged yourself. If there is anything I have learned from this experience, it is that nothing is set in stone. Everything can change in an instant. You are not a victim of your circumstances, but rather the creator of them. You are not a victim of your past, but rather its creator. You are not defined by what has happened to you in the past, but rather by what you choose to do with it now. Everyone has choices in life and everyone makes mistakes along the way. But if you make one mistake after another, then you will never learn from them. If you keep making the same mistakes over and over again, then you have no one else to blame but yourself for the situation at hand. You must take responsibility for your actions and reactions as needed to start your commitment to renew.
What is before you on this day? The only way to truly live is to live in the moment. When you are in the moment, you are truly alive. And when you are truly alive, you can experience more joy than you ever thought possible. Are you ready? Can you embrace it? Will you accept it? The only way to truly live is to live in the moment. When you are in the moment, you are truly alive. And when you are truly alive, you can experience more joy than you ever thought possible.
What is behind you? Do you see your old self? What do you feel when you see your old self? Sometimes you may feel that you’re still the old you. However, you are not your past, it’s just a part of you. You are not your past mistakes, they are just lessons learned. The past can only teach you so much and sometimes when you look back on your life you feel so disappointed in yourself for things that you did wrong or regretful of things that you wish you could change but the truth is if you keep looking backward at your past then you won’t be able to move forward because there will always be something holding you back from living your best life today.
What is yet to be made manifest? The present moment is always the first step in any journey. You may be on your way to the next level of your life, or you may be at the crossroads of a new adventure. The only way to find out where you’re going is to take an active role in your life and look forward to what’s yet to be made manifest. When you are living in the present moment, you are in touch with your inner self. You can accept yourself as you are and allow yourself to grow and change as you wish.
What is to be released, creating space for that which is to be? For something new to come into your life, there must be room for it in your life. You can’t have two things at once, one thing must leave so another thing can come in its place. The first is that you must be ready to release. This means that you must be willing to let go, not just for a brief time, but for good. You have to be able to release what no longer serves you and know that there is something better waiting for you on the other side.
Look within; you know what resonates and that which does not. You are not drawn to the things that do not resonate with you. The universe is a mirror of your thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Your mind is a magnet that attracts to it whatever resonates with your beliefs, attitudes, and perceptions. A self-renewing person is someone aware of the need for renewal, who takes responsibility for their renewal, and who actively engages in it.
Look around, look outside of yourself, that which is close to you. You’re so focused on your own life and problems that you often forget to step back and see what’s going on around you. The world is full of interesting people and places, but many of you spend most of your time focused on yourself. It’s time to look outside of yourself: Take some time each day to look at what’s happening around you, both near and far away. Look at how others live their lives, how they view their situations, and how they perceive their surroundings. Try not to judge them or compare yourself with them; just appreciate that everyone has his or her unique perspective on life.
Step out of your way, clearing the path for all to be made manifest in physical form. There is much to celebrate, much to be thankful for, there is much to appreciate. Get out of your head and into your heart, where the truth resides. Your truth will guide you on your journey. You may not know it yet but it is there, waiting for you. Be grateful for all things and all the people who have crossed your path in life thus far. It is through them that we learn, grow and become who we are meant to be.
How shall you choose to step upon the path before you this day? The path before you is a winding one, and sometimes it will lead you to unexpected places. It is never too late. You can change your life at any moment. It’s just a matter of whether or not you are willing to make the effort. You can do whatever it is that you want to do with your life, but first, you must decide what it is that you want to do with your life. The only thing stopping you from doing what you want to do with your life is yourself.
