Fresh Starts Have No Fear
I wish you a fresh start without fear.
The best fresh start feeling I have is that of packing my school bag for the first day of class in a new year. I used to love getting crisp brown paper sheets and wrapping each notebook and book of that year and then writing my name proudly on top. I loved to fill my bag with these new smelling packs of knowledge that were waiting to be unfolded. There was so much hope and anticipation in my steps as I entered the class. I was growing up and the books and notebooks felt like little presents that I could slowly unwarp as the year progressed.
As time has passed I have forgotten that feeling. I want to bring that joy back to fresh starts.
If you are making a fresh start somewhere in your life, I wish you a bag full of freshly packed, crisp brown paper-covered books and notebooks with your name written on each one on the top. The pens are brand new and so are the highlighters. The pencils look sharp at their tips. The bag is full of crisp white empty notebooks waiting for your ideas. Go out there and as my roman friend and poet, Horace would say — “Carpe Diem” or Seize the day.
You’ve got this.
