A New Beginning

Shiny as a new penny. A fresh start. Now really is the time. Right? Heard it all before?

What does it take to convince yourself that you are worth what it takes to begin to take control of your health and well-being. No one else can do it for you, and no one else could even begin to do it as well as you can. You know what drives you. You know what you will and won’t do. And, you know the reasons why (and why not). You also know it’s all really up to you.

But, why do you need a new beginning in the first place? There are beginnings which are exciting opportunities. And then, there are new beginnings, which come about when those exciting new opportunities (and all that goes with them) don’t always meet expectations. The reasons are endless. Maybe goals were set too high. Maybe enthusiasm waned. Maybe there was an illness or unexpected disruption in your day-to-day routine. Maybe it was too hard. Maybe you just lost interest. Maybe you felt defeated. Doesn’t matter. All is not lost.

Whatever the reason, there are always new beginnings, and those come with lessons learned. You had your reasons when you decided then was the time—aren’t those reasons still valid? Maybe they’re more valid now. If so, now will be a most excellent time for a new beginning.

If not now, exactly when?
