I welcome a new chapter in my life.
I welcome a new chapter in my life.
Sometimes I get the feeling that I’ve never really been the author of my own life. I was more like the reader. I read what was written there and followed the plot. I never had enough courage to grab my pen and start writing.
For that reason, I’ll start now. I’m starting a new chapter in my life. I’m sure it will be good. After all, I lead the pen myself and only I know what is good for me.
I want to leave everything that has tried to destroy me in a chapter called “Past” and my new chapter is called “Future” and this one focuses on where I am now and where I want to go. It’s a vision for my future.
I finally woke up from my mental hibernation. I “slept” for so long that I missed so much and didn’t really realize much of what was happening around me. It’s time for me to wake up from my sleep-like state.
I let my life ripple along for far too long without actively participating in it myself. When I was “asleep” I was never really in control of my life, which is changing now.
In this chapter I want to be awake. I want to make my own decisions in it, go my own way. I want to make mistakes and learn from them, I want to fall and get back up myself. I want to experience life with all its ups and downs.
I want to stand behind every decision, whether good or bad, and I will accept life’s answers to my actions, no matter how they turn out. So whatever happens, it just happens. But it happens because I wanted it to or because of my behavior.
This new chapter will contain very few traces of the past. I no longer regret mistakes from my past, I’m done feeling sorry for myself and I’m done seeing the negative in them. I am thankful for everything that was and also for what is still to come.
The mistakes made me get to know myself better and rediscover myself. I will remember my mistakes for one reason only, to not repeat them.
I am writing this chapter for myself. From now on, I’ll do whatever it takes for me to never do what other people expect me to do again. That doesn’t mean I’m becoming selfish, it just means it’s time to be myself.
Whenever someone needs advice I will be there, whenever someone needs an ear I will be there and listen. Because that’s the only way I can learn something for myself.
I will then see if your advice makes sense to me and if I can take something away from it for my life. In the end it will be my decision what to do with it. If my decision is wrong, then I will own up to the mistake, if your advice helps me, I will be eternally grateful to you.
Toxic people will have no place in this new chapter. You had already been given enough space in the last chapter and this one is finished as already mentioned. I’ve dealt with any kind of toxic people.
My lifetime is precious and I don’t want to waste it on that kind of person. I look forward to the new, positive people in the new chapter. I’ll try to keep them close if they’re good for my life and I’m good for theirs.
In the new chapter a lot revolves around positive energies. I am thankful for everything positive in my life. The positive people and experiences I have. They gave me love when I was down and support when I was lost, their positivity kept me holding on to my life when I was ready to let it go. I will take these people with me into the new chapter.
Sometimes it’s enough to write a new chapter like I’m doing right now or you’re writing a whole new book if you really want to draw a line with your “old life”.
Maybe you’re a completely different person spiritually than you were before and that’s why you’re writing a new story about yourself or you’re moving to a faraway town where you’re adding a new chapter to your life all by yourself, there are so many reasons to move start a new chapter.
The number one reason to start a new chapter is when you keep reading the old chapters and can’t let go of the past, then the best “medicine” is to write a new chapter.
If you turn to the old pages and read them over and over again, then your life as it is now will not change, because the plot always remains the same and you are stuck in a vicious circle of memories and pain.
So I started a new chapter that I embrace with open arms and full of hope in my heart.
