The concept of a fresh start can be terrifying to the human mind. You know having to start all over, change locations, new friends, new jobs, new hobbies e.t.c.
While it has its advantages and disadvantages, I will love to focus on the advantages that comes with a fresh start/new beginnings.
For me I’d say I relished the thought, nursed it for a very long time before deciding it was the best thing for me. I was so scared and sceptical at first, with my baby on the way and all the adjustments that came with it, it was a really tough decision for me. I had to move, change my lifestyle, make new friends, change hobbies and a whole lot of things even up unto my diet. Eventually it wasn’t so bad Infact it turned out to be my best decision yet. I had a chance for a do over. I got closer to my siblings (we kind of had a toxic relationship at that time) i had the opportuniry to work on my relationship with God and better ways to walk with him on my christian journey. I had the chance to think about what I really wanted to do. I’ve heard some people say starting again changes you and it makes you/turns you into a different person. But of course yes a do over changes you just like a make over does, do you look different? Yes, do you feel different? Yes, but at the end of the day you are still you, at the end of the day you become a better version of yourself. Its like going to the past to right all your wrongs and do better the things you initially did bad.
As a matter of fact my journey on new beginnings birthed this blog, a place I can express my thoughts, share my ideas, learn and give out. A place I can be comfortable with being me.
So sometimes when you are stuck and feel like you can’t go any further I want you to know that its okay to go back and start all over, learning from your mistakes is not a weak virtue rather it should be your strongest suit.
