A New Beginning
You stand at a point of departure –
a place from which to powerfully transform.
Choice offers itself to you.
Or, courageously step
in the direction of dreams?
What will be lost?
What will be gained?
From a still place within
intentions move to the surface.
Reflection invites clarity –
insight shapes inspired action.
You step into a new beginning.
Honestly, I don’t recall when I wrote this poem. I have had many new beginnings, big and ever so small. I see the opportunity to start anew every day, even multiple times on a given day. Each time I notice a negative thought and choose another narrative to carry with me, I open to something new.
These small every day beginnings come from years of making time to be still. Every day. Time to simply be with myself. Sometimes I do a little exploring – reading and journaling about what’s important to me and how I want to move through the world, for example. This time of reflection invites clarity – sometimes profound (for me, anyway ;]) and sometimes so simple. And from this grounded place of insight, I am able to be intentional about my path forward, to make choices that support inspired action.
