Give yourself a fresh Start...

How often we wish for another chance to make a fresh begining.
A chance to blot out our mistakes and change failure into winning.
It does not take a special time to make a brand new start.
It only takes the deep desire to try with all our heart.
To live a little better, to always be forgiving.
To add a little sunshine in a world for which we’re living.
Never give up in despair nor think you are through.
For there’s always a tomorrow,
A chance to start a new.

As we walk along the path of life, having considered our potential and accomplishments, thought about the things we would like to do and become present in this very moment. Let us take another step one which might be quite foreign to you, step up and acknowledge yourself. Get to know who you really are. Learn what it is that makes you laugh, and what it is that makes you sad. Make opportunities to experience more of ups and learn to let go of the downs. So often we look for validation in other people when we should be finding it within ourselves. It seems pointless to do something if other people are not benefiting or we do not stand to be acknowledged for what we have done.

Do you realize that no other person should be as important to yourself as you should be? Think of the oxygen mask in a plane. they tell you to put your own on before helping others! This is because if you don’t look after yourself first you may not be able to look after others. At the end of the day we are accountable only for our own actions. Are you willing to play to another’s whims and let them tell you what to do when they may not be there forever? People come and go through out our lives, and when they move on they will not look back and say she / he sacrificed their lives for me. They may never know just how much you gave up to help them. 

It is imperative that you understand how precious you are and learn to take care of you.  Today I would like you to write a letter to yourself. Write it as if you are writing to a very dear friend, one you truly care about. Let them know you are proud of them, tell them what you are looking forward to seeing them do. Put as much detail as you can into this letter, write about your concerns for your dearest friend, are there health issues? Family troubles? Is something coming up in the near future of  life importance?  Console your friend and let them know that there are answers and they will soon be found.

Once you have written your letter put it away somewhere safe where you will be able to find it so you can refer to it when ever you need a boost, this letter is coming from your inner self, The self that seeks only the best for you.
Let’s Live.
