A new life / what I wouldn’t give to have a new life…
The change-of-life situation that gnawed at me for weeks, as I grappled with what I needed to do, is an opportunity to have a “new” life.
A new start / that’s the thing I need to give me new heart…
Truth be told, I had become more and more disheartened with my less-than-ideal living quarters, and a lot of worry that overtook my usually positive outlook.
Half a chance in life to find a new part / just a simple role that I can play…
A woman I’ve known for some time from my theatre work sent me a private message on Facebook about a month ago. She commented on how remarkable my self-reinvention was.
A new life / more and more I’m sure as I go through life
Just to play the game and to pursue life / Just to share its pleasures and belong
That’s what I’ve been here for all along…
I have been so caught up in the drama I allowed to manifest around me, that I lost my sight; that unfiltered heart- and soul-based sight I have access to when I stay in the now; in the present; in the moment.
Each day’s a brand new life
Another Facebook friend made a statement to me via private message that took my breath away, offered me a new perspective, and dislodged the blinders I had slipped on.
Those blinders aren’t entirely off, but they are precariously positioned. I see big chunks of light shining through, rather than an occasional glimmer.
I have an incredible opportunity to forge a new life. Stay tuned.
Have you ever reinvented yourself? If yes, in what way? If no, have you wanted to?
