Starting new, destroying the old, recreating our lives is both liberating and painful.
It is painful because we are often attached to how our life is, to the status quo, to the comfort of knowing what we can expect.
It is liberating because we now have a clean slate, a blank canvas on which to create something completely different from what we had before. There are no restrictions, and no guidelines as well.
It is thrilling to begin anew and be limited only by our own imagination. It can also be scary as it is the most uncertain, unknown place to be.
Once the first line is drawn, once we take the first step, we can feel relief. The blankness of the empty canvas can feel daunting and overwhelming. The surest way to get past those stifling feeling is to just take action, do something, create the first little piece.
When we begin, taking that first step, the second step comes easier. As does the third, the fourth, and then we are in the flow. What we once feared dissolves and transforms into the excitement of creation in process.
Every day is an opportunity to see your life as a blank slate. An opportunity to destroy your life and re-create it in any form you desire.
So what do you desire now? What possibilities are you looking to bring into your life?
