Wisdom Wednesday: In The Beginning

There is a saying that it’s not about your beginning but how you finish something that counts. Yet sometimes we have to think about the beginning. Especially when one door is closing and another is opening. As one season ends in our lives we will experience a new beginning.

My favorite quote of all time and what brings me continual inspiration to keep going and to not get stagnant says:

“There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”  –Anais Nin

What a great reminder to embrace growth. We become more beautiful. We take what we learned from the past and what was once flawed, becomes a stepping stone.

I not only feel inspiration when I read the following quote, but also cringe a little:

New beginnings are exciting and also a little scary. Letting go is difficult. We may think we are losing control.

But…

“Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.”
-Gilda Radner

If you are facing a change. Or if you want to make a change in your life, remember this:

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
-Lao-tzu

What beginning are you facing in your life? What are some ways that keep you moving forward and embracing change?

  1. Omg Ang! Love this, and love the quotes….. All of them! This has been quite a season of change, letting my oldest child go on an amazing journey as she pursues all of God with her whole heart….while also anticipating the birth of my 3rd child. Kind of scary to do things the non-conventional way! Lol

    • Ruthann,

      You are an inspiration to so many people. And you have blessed me personally with your testimony and life experiences. You also have one of the sweetest people as a daughter and I believe that is because you were a remarkable influence and a great mommy!

      Thanks for interacting here!

      Love ya!
      Ang

    • You’re welcome and thanks for needing that or I may have not had a post on Wednesday! LOL

      You have been through so much already in life even though you’re a young whipper snapper! You have a lot to offer people and your perspective really makes us think.

      As Clinton Kelly would say “Wear something cute and don’t take any crap.”

      Love ya! Ang
