The topic for this upcoming week will be Expectations! Join me tomorrow to read more.
Before a new beginning can show up, sometimes we have to say goodbye to something or someone in our life. Saying goodbye is never easy, but if we can shift our thinking, saying goodbye does not have to be all bad. Have you heard the song "Second Chance" by Shinedown before? It says "sometimes goodbye is a second chance"? I love the message that sends. Goodbye can be an opportunity, a second chance.
If we step into each new beginning with the optimism of the second chance it could bring, we may open ourselves up to even more in life. When you are in the midst of saying goodbye, you may not be able to see past that moment, but once you can take a breath and step back, try to find something positive that can come out of each situation. By shifting your thoughts, you can really change how you see life. Begin to see things as positive and this is what you will get. Start fresh and open yourself up for your new beginnings.
Either journal about these questions or spend a few moments thinking through your answers.
- What second chances are you ready for in your life?
- How can you look at goodbye as an opportunity instead of an ending?
- What new beginnings do you need to create for yourself?
- How can you open yourself up to the optimism of each new beginning and what it can bring into your life?
Find something you need to change in your life and create your new beginning right now. Find your second chance and make it work!
Enjoy the journey!
