Time to Turn a New Page
As in every new year, we’re called to reflect and turn a new page of our lives.
For the next 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes, or 31,536,000 seconds.
It’s a block of time. A “gift of God” for you and I to have another chance at the art of life.
To make the most of the limited time, we forget what lies in the past and press forward so we can advance and grow.
If you’d been in shock or grief, full of questions and pain, from the past year, you saw how it was. The way it affected your physical and mental health, confidence, and relationships are simply life damaging.
You can only get through this for the new year when you resolve to turn your new page.
That requires a lot of good steps and gains for you.
Such as, learning deeply about your self. Coming to better terms with reality. Forgiving others, even your self. Accepting what you cannot change. And doing what you can change.
Throughout turning your new page, you’ll find the inspiration to help you go from woundedness, disbelief, and bewilderment to a place of strength, faith, and victory.
A psychology student once went to West Point, USA for the research of her thesis. She wanted to find out what differentiates between those who survived and those who didn’t in military training.
A military general, one of the West Point officers she interviewed, said, “There are two major keys that differentiate them. You want to know them?”
“Yes of course, General!,” she exclaimed.
“Two major keys: perseverance and passion,” revealed the general.
Hopefully, you can too apply those two major keys. Turn your new page - and move perseveringly and passionately forward on a new and even your best life ever.
