Wake Up to Live with Desiree Leigh
New beginnings, what does this mean?
Every morning I wake up, I hear my breathe, my eyes open, and I see my surroundings; that symbolizes a new beginning. When I make a pot of coffee, and watch the water drops drip out of the peculator; that is a new beginning. It is not the coffee I had yesterday; it's not the same water I had yesterday. The drops from the peculator are new to the day. This symbolic analogy may mean nothing to someone else, but in my mind, I can see new beginnings all around me.
New beginnings all around us.
The cherry blossoms in the spring time. The sprouting of a seedling. The sun rising over the mountains. The birth of a baby child. A robins eggs. The caterpillar emerging from its cocoon. The bud of a flower that finally blossoms. The daily shedding of skin cells. The growth of new leaves on a birch tree. Even the new growth of hair on my head.
Being receptive to the new beginnings all around me, somehow makes me look at life in a new perspective. What I experienced in my past--whether it was yesterday or ten years from today, I can take it with me and carry it all day and into my future, or I can stay in the present, see the new beginnings each day, and know that I have the efficacy to create life.
