Each Day a New Beginning

I want to get you excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you can go far beyond where you are right now. —Virginia Satir—

Deciding to recover was our first step. That decision meant we did want to go beyond where we were. We did want something better for ourselves. And at times, in fleeting moments, we have been excited about who we are and our prospects for a better life. The excitement and the inspiration come and go; they are seldom stationary. We can actively create the excitement and the inspiration. We need not wait for them to come to us. That’s one of the choices we have as human beings, as women.
Passively waiting for “the good life” is past behavior.

Each day, this day, we can set our sights on reaching a goal–we can take a step, or two, toward that goal. Progress is there for the making–achievement is there for the taking.Whatever our hearts’ pure desires, we can move toward that goal. We are what we need to be. We have what we need to move ahead. Today, I will let my excitement for life’s possibilities spur me on.
