On the day after Christmas, people come down from the high and here is life again to ask:
How I do make it now?
It’s a trap to only want life to be wonderful and not work against our challenges.
And so we hide behind a smile, we push onward because we don’t know any better. As the days peel on by, New Year comes rolling in upon celebrations for a fresh start. YET… then it happens again. On the day after New Years, the world is still here. And yes: it’s the same world as yesterday. You’re again living in repeats as you get the repeat of yesterday’s problems because you drag the old stories with you into the new day. Almost ever one does this.
It isn’t about the day after. The day after is always about the clean up and and so few people want to clean up.
The time to start a new story isn’t tomorrow. It’s today.
Who are you? What new story, what way of holding yourself are you ready to embrace so it is no longer about the past?
No amount of wisdom, no perfect insight can fully guide you, no amount of grace from another… will magically lift your feet into steps of freedom without your own action to back it.
In the end you have a simple choice. What actions will you take to grow. Understand that simply repeating how you live day to day only keeps the past moving into the future like a train wreck.
Look to your feet, ask them: where should we go? Look at your hands and ask them: what do I want to make? What action do you want to make real. Then let your feet be free so they can walk you into a growing life again. Then power your hands to create something new. It’s hard work and you must push and push through it like going thru the ocean breakers to get to the open sea.
It’s hard to move ahead in life. To push past the breakers that threaten us. Often times: to get to a better life it does mean letting the old life die. We can’t drag the old stories with us. But from the release, you do craft a new life, free from repeats.
