New Beginning Quotes

Quotes about New Beginnings - New Beginnings Quotes

Every day is a new beginning. All of life provides opportunities for new beginnings. Whatever has gone wrong, or right, in your life, you can begin again.

(skip to New Beginning Quotes)

What is a "new beginning?" Regarding your career, a new beginning might mean getting a different job, but it also might mean changing your whole career path - becoming an artistic woodworker rather than looking for your next job in the insurance business. Best of all, a new beginning might mean a new approach - a new attitude toward your job - a new set of goals - a new vision. If you have always looked at your job from the point of view of striving for the next promotion or raise, perhaps a new beginning could be looking at your job from the point of view of enjoying your interactions with your co-workers, customers, and others - getting to know them better - making it a more personal experience. Of course, a new beginning in your career could combine a new job or field with a new less monetary attitude. In the insurance to woodworker example, the career change is almost certainly motivated by values other than money.

While a new beginning in relationship, could mean a new person in your life, consider also that a new beginning could be a new way of looking at an existing relationship - choosing to hold a different set of expectations (that is demands) of your relationship and your partner - viewing the relationship in a whole new light. That is fully as much a new beginning as choosing a new partner. In fact, changing your expectations for being in relationship is a bigger new beginning that merely swinging the revolving door of lovers one more time. In each of your relationships, you are always there. You are the element that is common to all your relationships, so if you have a pattern of failed relationships, consider examining your expectations for relationship - not settling for less, but seeking a fully engaged yet self-confident and self-directed partner, rather than seeking perceived security, wealth, services (chores), and domination or submission.

Changing yourself is a far more crucial new beginning than replacing the people in your life, or attempting the impossible task of changing the natures of those who remain in your life.

What about a new beginning with your family? You can't choose a new family - at least not new blood relatives. But, you can have a new beginning with your family by changing your attitude and your expectations. Start by taking them less seriously - not in the sense of reducing the importance of your bond with family, but by becoming less critical of what they say and do. So what if Aunt Jane always tells the same stories and Uncle Max forgets your children's names - does it really matter in the long run? Is it worth stressing over? Or disowning your family. Even if you have a really big dirty family secret like incest, no good comes to you now for holding resentment and hatred. View everything your family says as merely their opinion - because that is exactly what it always has been. Whether you agree or disagree, whether you find it interesting or boring, whatever they say is their opinion, nothing more and nothing less.

Another Sunrise, Another New Beginning.
