Do you ever get that overwhelming feeling that you just want to slam on the breaks and make everything stop? Life gets so crazy sometimes it can feel like you can’t even take a deep breath.

I have been feeling a bit like that recently. Like everything is just moving way faster than I could ever keep up. I keep missing the details in things that I would normally never miss.

It has been more like we are in a constant state of reacting verses being prepared and ready to take on whatever is coming our way.

I am so very grateful today for new beginnings. That even when everything is crazy and out of control, it is possible to do it different. You don’t have to do it the way you have been. Yesterday, we drew a line in the sand on a few things we have been struggling with. This is it, a new beginning, a new day to do it different. It isn’t going to be easy or come naturally and to be perfectly honest we aren’t completely sure what needs to be done yet. But, we are getting started, one step at a time. There will be plenty of stumbling and I am sure more “step-on-the-break” moments.

New beginnings give a hope that each day has the opportunity to be better than the last. No matter what you are going through. We all have an opportunity to say we are ready. To dedicate ourselves to the hard work and take on the challenges that come with change. We are tired of the status-qua, tired of our old ways.
