New beginnings start with an opening.

We all long for new beginnings at times. We want a fresh start or a redo, to unburden ourselves. We’re hopeful for a better outcome and may feel some dissatisfaction with the status quo.

Illogically, we also may want the potential change to occur without changing any of our thoughts or behavior. We just want the world around us to improve.

But successful change needs to start within. We have to be ready and willing to believe differently, think new thoughts, and act in ways that are unfamiliar to us, in order to see a fresh outcome. We need to be open to change.

Today’s message encourages me to be willing to crack the shell of my usual existence in order to allow fresh input into my life. I open to a more fulfilling way of being.

Please reflect and share. Are you open to change in your life?
