Children are going away to college at this time of the year. I ponder how they’re being gifted a chance for starting over. They can be whomever they want to be in a whole new clean slated world at their new schools. Whereas everyone knows you in grade school and high school, you can recreate yourself in the new college setting.
It’s hard to see our opportunity to start over on a daily basis. We may have the feeling that we must concede to the choices we’ve already made. Ride out the stuck. But this is just our fear selling us on staying safe.
We don’t have to move house or state of residence to make a change. Instead, we can declare our intentions instead to make new friends at a new job, exercise class, or book club. We can rearrange our living rooms, color our hair, or finally get that pedicure we’ve been putting off.
It just takes a slight amount of effort to plan a new choice and follow it through with the same earnest hope as those incoming freshmans, that this will be the start of a whole new life. All we have to is change our mindset and perhaps sit in a different place at our tables.
Any changes you’re planning to make in the upcoming season of Fall (or Spring) happens ?
