New Beginnings. Yes. New Beginnings. I am a little late in realizing that this is a start to a new school year that will then be the start to a new life, an adult, graduated from college life. I have been in denial for a while now because it is scary and does not seem like much fun. But this week I realized that it is an entire new year that I can fill how I choose.
I tried to make a point of not being as busy this year as I have been in previous years, but I have now realized that was and is fruitless. I like to fill up my time. I mean I love to fill my time up to the brim and passed the brim until it is overflowing, and maybe making a few messes, but that overflowing spirit touches others and incites them to passion, action or maybe just curiosity. So now that I have come to terms with Me, and that I will never be the type of person that does not have every moment planned out, I can ask the question: How do I want to spend my time. It seems so basic, but really, how should I spend it? and most importantly, how does my Heavenly Father want me to spend it?
This brings me to my September Quote of the Month: (Gosh I just love Words...)
"The chief beauty about time
Arnold Bennet, is an author that I had honestly never heard of until I stumbled across this quote. But he is onto something, something that could be life changing. We (maybe that is an over generation, it may just be me) are constantly worried over wasting time and looking back at our past with remorse. I look back at all the things I wish I had done this way or that. But why?
Cheers to new beginnings! Cheers to doing something exciting, extraordinary or just nice and peaceful with each new hour!
So goals for this new month are as follows:
1. fill my time with things that I believe in and find fulfillment in
2. do not get stuck in a rut, artistically, socially or emotionally
3. think about the future in a "possibilities are endless" manner
