“Every end should be followed by a great new beginning”
― Aditia Rinaldi
With all of life’s ups and downs, sometimes the downs seem to overpower the ups. It’s hard to imagine you can begin again. But you can.
Quite often we need to do things differently. We need to find something that will help, something that excites you and gently pushes you to keep moving forward.
Below are a few simple and fun ideas to get started:
• Give yourself a personal makeover – consider a new hair style and take a look at your wardrobe. A day at the hair salon is a great way to refresh and recharge. Changing things up in your wardrobe is a wonderful way to feel good that doesn’t have to be very costly. A simple change such as a new jacket, scarf, or just a new color that you haven’t worn before can lift your spirits and give you some new found confidence to take action.
• Make wellness a priority – Stress zaps your energy. Take some time for you and consider a short get away to focus on you and your self care. Exercise, massage, yoga, meditation are easy and calming ways to revitalize your mind and body and give you a fresh perspective.
• Make over a room – Start fresh and new by changing up your living space at home. Paint the walls a different color, rearrange the furniture. Just surrounding yourself with something different can give you a positive lift to your spirits.
• Take a new path – When life kicks you, values and priorities change. As you begin again look inside for your gifts. Maybe this is the time to consider a job you always wanted or take a class to learn something new.
To begin again can feel daunting at times. Go slow. Try something from the above list to create the momentum to keep moving forward. Soon you will notice life feels good again and there is much to look forward to. You can create a new world for yourself filled with as much happiness and joy you can find.
Be good to yourself. You deserve the best life has to offer.
