Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.
The beginning of the school year always makes me stop and evaluate the things that I need to accomplish and the additional goals that I need to set. As the kids return to school, we can also start a new path as well. The opportunity to start fresh is the chance to grow and build. In life we frequently will feel as if we are backed into a corner that we can’t get out of, but that is the furthest thing from the truth! We have a chance to change every day. Every morning that we open our eyes we can take on a new challenge to accomplish something different. It doesn’t have to always be something major; it can be something simple as thinking more positively or taking a 10 minute walk.
Today, for this week, let’s set the goal of starting something new. It can be a new approach to dealing with others, a new workout routine, a new book, or setting a new goal. Great things happen when we are moving forward!
I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new day, a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning.
