Begin Again Daily, With Your Life as Your Art. And Again. And Again.

On the oh, so human subject of beginning again, have you noticed how we humans have good days and bad days, inspired moments, ones that don’t represent our best, and everything in between? Are you 100% clear that it isn’t just you?

Yes. Deep breath.

In living the life of your dreams, I invite you to get clear that Every. Single. Moment. is an opportunity for beginning again. Are you on track, or off? How often do you step out of all your automatic thoughts and feelings to take a look at that? To take stock?

It’s a skill, like a muscle you can develop. And it’s all about practice. Think of it as a healthy ritual that you can make a regular part of your committed approach to your own precious, unrepeatable life.

So if you’re on track, jam on, managing inner and outer challenges in the process. This management of all things works when you know you’re on the path that’s right for you. Because there’s inherent energy and inspiration in that knowledge that you can ride like a wave of relatively effortless progress. In truth, not swimming upstream can make all the difference.

On the other hand, if you realize you’re off track, congrats, first, on the accomplishment of that honest reflection. Give yourself some credit for it, championing your own insight. Then assess further. What small or large shift will get you on your path again?

Finally, armed with the results of your assessment, get about the beautiful business of beginning again, knowing that, as wise Ezra Pound says above, you’re in very creative company. And in the trenches of that good work, reach out for the expert support you deserve.
