“Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” –Maria Robinson
I like to have a map of where I am going and time frame of when I will get there and sometimes when there are twists and turns in my path, it throws me for a loop. I feel out-of-place, lost, and chaotic. I know I can’t start over though. I can’t go to where I was before it happened and do it over a different way.
There are paths that take us places we never thought we would be. Some of them are because we made bad choices, some of them are because someone else made bad choices, and yet some of them are because someone made good choices. And there we are, left in the open, standing on our heads in the middle of nowhere. There is one thing to do–turn yourself upright and start moving. Your ending might be different, but it doesn’t have to be labeled a tragedy. It can still be a success story. Start today. Stand up, brush yourself off, and take the first step on a new journey.
