Fresh Starts and Making Changes

When is it time for a fresh start? Is it the end of a season? The start of school? Or, perhaps the New Year?

For me, waiting for the perfect time to do something was my MO (modus operandi). I thought that my timing needed to be perfect before making a change. But, obviously, there is no exact or perfect time to make a change. Today, I believe you can make a change – or have a fresh start – at any point in time.  

Each and every one of us gets stuck in a rut a times! When it happens to me, I struggle with not knowing what to do. I have typically just sat around feeling uncomfortable with the fact that I didn’t know what I should do next. I would wish that a flashing neon arrow or a burning bush would magically appear and point at the direction I should go next.

Unfortunately, life is not the simple…or is it?

A smart person once said, that all difficult decisions are resolved on their own. You the person do not need to do anything but the next right thing!

What is the next right thing?

For example, if you want to win the lottery, you need to buy a ticket. If you want to be in a relationship, you may need to go meet new people by joining an online dating site or joining a gym. Chances are that the right person for you isn’t your mailperson – but maybe! If you are looking for a new way of getting to and from work, try taking a form of public transportation instead of driving.

If you want something or want to make a change, you must act. You must get busy! Get busy trying new things and going for what you want!
