To Begin Again!

Over the past year or so I have republished all of the original blogs from ‘Journey to Joy’ I did this to reintroduce the blog to people that never read the original postings.  I have decided to begin the blog again, with the hope of posting at least 2-3 times a week.  I hope you will welcome this new content and I hope that this blog can again help thousands of people.  As with the original blog I promise this will be an easy 5 minute read with a positive message to help you learn to live a more joyful life, if you haven’t read the original posts, I invite you to but it’s not needed to enjoy the new ones.

What do you fear the most about starting over?  Is it the fear of the unknown? Or the fear of the past?  Since I decided to republish these blogs, I lost my job and started my own business.  I have worked hard in my life to not allow fear in my life.  This isn’t to say that I don’t have moments of fear, I truly do.  I love where I’m living in Colorado and would be sad if we had to leave because of my decision to give up my previous career as a tax accountant and start my own travel business.  I believe there comes a time in everyone’s life that they have to ‘reinvent’ themselves and get back to what makes them happy.  I decided to change my life by getting back to 2 things that I love; travel and helping people. 

I am thrilled with this decision but still have my moments of doubt.  The greatest fear any of us have is the fear of the unknown!  We can never predict what will happen tomorrow or even in the next hour.  The truth about life is all we have is this moment right now, in this moment everything is possible.

The problem for most of us is that we are unable to stay in the present moment because we hope for a better life tomorrow or we’re stuck in what happened yesterday.  No matter what happened in the past we need to move beyond it by letting it go.  I know this isn’t always easy, it took me years to work through some of the things I’ve been through in my life.  I came to one conclusion in regards to this, I wouldn’t be the person I am today without going through everything I’ve been through in my life.  I love who I am, it took me a very longtime to say that but because I now can I can move beyond my past.

The second issue is the dream or promise for tomorrow.  I love to dream, I believe in hope, but the way to make those dreams come true is to enjoy where you’re at now!!  By changing the way you look at things in this moment you can begin to change your life.  Find joy, find wonderment, be grateful for everything you have and your life will begin to change forever.  I know this because it’s happened to me.

Till next time,


Quote of the day: “The way to begin again in your life is to find joy in this and every moment.  One moment at a time you will change your life, forever!”
