We all have those days, or weeks, or even months, that are horrible. That is what this past July has been for me. It is usually the worst month of the year, but this July was the worst. The annivary of my mother’s suffering and death, loss of friends, not getting much sleep, toxic people dumping their toxic crap in my life, Mercury in retrograde, arguments and finally someone saying they didn’t understand my family’s death being so upsetting – it was nature. WTAH??
And finally – FINALLY – it is no longer. It is August, the next month, the new month. New with no bad things, new with the promise of good times, great friends, more possibilities, new, adventures and new experiences.
And how many tines have we needed to start over? And that is the grrat thing about a new month, or a new year, or even a new day, we have the opportunity to start over. We have the opportunity to not make the same mistakes. We have the opportunity to start new, no matter what it is. Whether it’s to exercise or to pray, or to meditate or to read more or to whatever. Each new day, each new week, each new month, each New Year, even right down to each new moment, is a new start should we choose to take it.
Our Lives will never be completely done. We are constantly in the progress of improving or changing or striving. We are constantly in flux. And that is okay, because only when we stop learning, only when we stop changing do we truly die, at least in Soul and Spirit. So as long as we’re growing and learning then we are going in the right direction. And we can always change our mind if we discover a better path.
And so it is now with this new month. A Time for so many things finally being tied up and coming to an end, and even more new things being started. It is a new month, it is a fresh start, and it is exciting.
Life is short and precious, in the time we have is finite. Don’t waste your time being stuck are you don’t want to be. Step out of your comfort zone, take some chances and risks, and make your dreams come true. And even if you fail, so what? At least you went out there and tried. And that’s more than many people can say. So go out there and do it. And happy new month!
