Life Always Provides a Fresh Start

“And suddenly you just know it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.” — Meister Eckhart
At this moment, I breathe deeply and allow myself to just trust in the Universe. In that internal place where I know Spirit/God/Love resides. It takes practice, devotion, and – yes – faith to allow that trust to blossom. But what I know to be true is that Spirit lifts me up when I fall down, God feels my struggles and supports me through the tough times, and Love sets me free to realize my dreams. How wondrous it is to know that I am actually never alone, and that the Universe surrounds me. I am grounded in that realization, even in the midst of feeling lost. For who amongst us has not felt lost, separate and alone, wondering where the path is leading us? Who has not felt the unease or uncertainty of where to head next, and what awaits us around the next bend?
So again, in those moments, I breathe deeply, feel my connection, and trust in the process that Life will present the new way, and the fresh start I so desire is already being formulated. I embrace Life, I celebrate all that I have, and give great thanks for all of my many blessings. I release any sense of anxiety or fear, and feel the sweet sensation of profound acceptance of my impending good, in every area of my life. Believe and trust in Life; believe and trust in oneself, and simply know that all is well. And so it is.
