049: Do You Want or Need a Fresh Start?Aug 16, 2018
With the start of a new school year, there has been a lot of talk about clean slates and fresh starts. Today, we talk about that concept and take two different angles:
1. On one hand, we should look at everyday as a fresh start, a new chance to make choices that lead us closer to the person that we want to become, the goal we want to achieve or the milestone that we want to hit. Why wait until some random day on the calendar when you can just start today?
2. On the other hand, do we ever actually get a clean start? Our experiences shape us and our view of the world, so is there such a thing as a fresh start? Can we just forget about the past and start again? And if so, do you want to?
We talk about reality vs. perception, and how all events and people in our life can help to teach us things and help us to grow. Yes, each day is a new day, and we should be conscious about the choices that we make, but changing our perceptions on past events to turn every event into a learning experience can greatly help us to grow into the people we are meant to be.
