We get into situations where we feel like we've invested too much, we’d be a fool to stop or maybe we won’t be in a better situation. We contemplate different scenarios in our heads about how it would look like to keep going or how it would look like to stop. What would it mean to start again?
To start again can sometimes confuse us into thinking we are giving up. To give up a dream, a goal or an idea that brings us hope, is to literally kill it in our psyche. Killing something in our mind that brought us hope is, I believe worse than never having had it at all. The outcome of this can be detrimental because we don’t realize how connected we are to it. To give something up by choice can have a way of changing our outlook on life. We may begin a domino effect and lose motivation in other areas of our lives as well. I believe giving up comes best when it absolutely harms our inner peace and what we are giving up was simply coming from egotistical motives. In this case, giving up will only build us up. I’ve had moments where instead of starting again for the 6th time I’d rather give up altogether, but If I strongly feel that I was called to pursue something, I start again.
ARE WE STARTING FROM SCRATCH?
Sometimes it may feel like if we start anything over again, we’ll start from scratch but I don’t think that’s the case. Thankfully, every time we go through something we have the opportunity to grow through it. I was helping a friend organize their kitchen and let me tell you, it was extremely disorganized! I took out everything from the drawers and placed them on a table. This allowed me to do two things: examine the empty drawers and examine everything that had occupied those drawers. As soon as I started to identify what would remain in the kitchen and what wouldn’t, I began to gain massive momentum and with that momentum I was able to finish. When we clear things off entirely, it may seem like we’re starting from scratch but instead we are able to start again. When we start over, we get a chance to see our reality from a distance. We can take a moment to lay out all our actions on the table and sort out the ones that will remain from the ones that won’t. In doing so, we are able to clearly envision the path we want to take so that it aligns with our true intentions.
REVIVING OUR VISION
Starting again can revamp many things in our life including our vision. Reviving our vision can help us stimulate the passion we had when we first started. It can inspire us and refresh our hope. We can put together the insights we’ve gained thus far so that we may build a strong foundation to carry out our vision. Rebuilding our foundation can be pivotal in the longevity of our journey. There will still be challenges along the way and no one is immune to that but this will build confidence throughout the process. I will end this with a quote by Meister Eckart, “And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings”.
