Starting Over

STARTING OVER - Author known to The Great Spirit - How many times do we have to start over? ** many changes in our lives signal a major ending or beginning: death, birth, graduation, relapse, marriage, divorce, moving to a new home, getting sober/clean, losing a job, or beginning a new career. We look around and think, "Here we go. I'm starting over again." **

Sometimes we don't catch on at first. Sometimes it just feels like a day after day of the same old thing as the old fades away and the new begins. Sometimes it feels like our lives have just stopped. Whether we believe it or not, when one cycle ends, a new one begins. **

If life as you have known it is disappearing, it may be time to let go. Even if you can't see it now--and you probably can't--a new life will begin fading in to take its place. You and your life are being transformed. ** How many times do we have to start over? As many times as life as we know it ends. **

You're being born again. (prayer) God, help me trust that a new life awaits me if life as I've known it is fading away. Give me the patience and trust to sink joyfully into the void. Amen....change can, at times, feel strange, awkward, and uncomfortable. But HP's direction for us has always been for the best. I'll relax and go with the flow of the day. How about you?...loves :--)x
