Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start now and make a brand new ending.”
—Carl Bard

Beginnings and endings….I like to think that my life has been made up of lots of these…begjnnings and endings. Maybe we can’t go back and change a beginning that is now past….but we are always able to have new beginnings …ones that lead us to                                   new and different endings. 

How much control does a person have over beginnings and endings?  We are always able to start anew…and in doing so…doesn’t  that mean a person must recognize the end??  I think that not recognizing the  end…is what makes it so difficult  to consider a new start…and thus…to have a  brand new ending.

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.


TS (Thomas Stearns) Eliot

You have all heard the sayings about … If you keep doing what you are doing…you will keep getting what you are getting.  That is great if what you are getting is good, positive and what you want.  However…if it is not…it is probably time to stop doing what you are doing…find the end…and restart…with a new beginning.

This blog  and my book and Sam…have been  new beginnings  for me.  How about you…any new beginnings in your life these days?

Do you think like me…that beginnings are like memories that we  hold on to… so tightly ….that we cannot make room for new ones?  Can a person hold onto beginnings too tightly?…. If a person never starts anew…will they keep playing the same ending over and over again??  Do  beginnings ….define who we are??..Or do endings define who we are??  or both?? … And if we make new beginnings…are we redefining ourselves??…Is it a good thing to have lot’s of brand new starts?? …and if we do , will that ensure , at least, some new endings???

If So…why not begin anew!!!  Who knows what kind of brand new endings you might  fill your days with!!!

just an interesting stone
