where is the beginning?

Any typical story has three main parts – a beginning, a middle and an end.

story tellingIf life is indeed all about the journey, then my desire to write, have fun, to love deeply, communicate openly, share wantonly and bring laughter into the lives of others should in no way include an ending.

With each new day there is a story unfolding all around the world and whether or not yours includes positive steps forward, we are all connected to the forever of life as it unfolds. To hell with their being and end…

“A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” ~ Lao Tzu

I am awaked to write not be sleepless nightmares of the impending, it’s due to the vivid dreams and excitement of possibility. With circumstance having little impact on what I believe is a world filled with lively prospects and feasible probability.

The label of being an optimist though viewed as a positive attribute, I believe more in being wholly and sometimes blindly encouraged over simply being faithful. Faith in my learning and fostering an ability to write and eventually write well comes with it stumbles, bumps, and hurdles as I am a fresh faced student who listens intently to the experts, my teachers and my peers. Yet to believe in such a crusade carries with it a confidence in so many things associated with being creative.

Trust is extremely important and should be the driving factor in any new beginning via our willingness to share, for only the very best and authentic intentions bring true happiness. Each new step should include a vision of what can be, not of what might be. The incentive provided by a desire to give and assist allows for a better and more clear view of the agreements we seek in ourselves and others.

“That which we manifest is before us; we are the creators of our own destiny. Be it through intention or ignorance, our successes and our failures have been brought on by none other than ourselves.” ~ Garth Stein

An interest in bringing like minds together and discussing our accomplishments through inspired journeys tends to bring us closer together and with this process of connecting we learn about not only about the fruition of our desires, but a more knowledgeable path on how best to begin, take risks and roll happily into heart of our own adventures.

Sharing of our experiences, our lessons learned and the perfect practice that gains the best results I would think would benefit anyone who strikes out on a new path. The end of missing something, someone, or not sharing the failed attempts that have made us who we are, will inspire us all if we can only be open to all that is accessible.

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny.” ~ Aristotle

Limits are quite funny actually in that most are self-imposed. I’m gonna roll into town on a wave of ignorance and see what I can learn about new beginnings and how to hold on while I gallop into the middle.

Yee Haw!

  2. This is a great post to take me into the New Year. I have been reflecting on the past year and all I have accomplished (we also had a new baby to the family) and it just seems it has passed so quickly but still I am excited for tomorrow, for the new things to come and want to make the most of each day I am given. Thanks for such an inspirational post!

    1. Reflecting on the past year and selecting only those moments that have made a difference in our thoughts and beliefs has made a huge difference in my life as well. Congratulations on your new addition and I look forward to reading your posts as well. Happy New Year!
