I think today is the start of something big! Not that big things haven't been happening, but I have felt the past few months that things were happening to me or around me. I was sort of standing in the background watching them happen but I didn't feel like I was participating. I really was participating, but it was at a distance. At least emotionally. Today I decided to change that.
There isn't anything particularly special about today. It's the same as every other day, really. But, what is special is that I have decided to make it so. Today is the start of a new journey for me. I have been on this journey many times before. I have taken many roads but I have yet made it to my destination. Some would call that failure. I, however, do not. With each trip I have learned more about myself than the previous trip. Each journey brings new and exciting things. Each adventure is worthwhile.
I think I am better equipped for this journey than I have been in the past. I am quite familiar with some of the roads as I have travelled them many times before. With each passing, however, I notice something different. I learn a little more. For those little side trips I have taken, some I can skip. I didn't enjoy them the first time around and I don't think the second would be any different... or the third...or the fourth. If I do find myself on a path that I don't enjoy before there must be something there I need to see so I will do my best to look for it. No journey is wasted. All have a meaning. All have a purpose.
So there you have it. Today I start off on a new journey. An new adventure. A new life. All because I said so.
