“I close my eyes to old ends, and open my heart to new beginnings,” wrote Nick Frederickson. His words beautifully capture the essence of embracing change, renewal, and personal growth. We see life as an incredible journey, one filled with countless opportunities for transformation and reinvention, adventure, learning and dreams undreamed. They remind us not to fear the end of one chapter; rather, eagerly anticipate the start of the next. C.S. Lewis said, “There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” The past may have shaped us, yet the future holds possibilities to take us to heights of fulfillment and growth undreamed.
May you explore paths and roads previously untaken to find their beauty, richness and adventure. May you hear and embrace Ralph Waldo Emerson’s counsel, “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.” Your potential is boundless. Every new beginning is an opportunity to tap into your inner strength, resilience, and creativity. As Emerson said, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
May you continue to venture forward and close your eyes to old ends; they are the foundation of your remarkable story. Open your heart to new beginnings; they are the chapters yet to be written. Every dawn is an opportunity to start anew, and every moment is a chance to become the better version of yourself. Hear and embrace Rumi’s wisdom, “Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” Your best is yet to come!
Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
