Starting something sparkles and glows

Quickens your thinking wakes up your toes

Excites your body tickles your mind

Propelling you places leaving old-self behind


Dawning new visions letting go of old fears

Breaking free of chains that locked you for years

Reinvention beginnings are possible now

Time for rebirth figuring out how


The best part of starting new

Do it now no matter what’s been true

No matter how stuck no matter your place

You have power discover your private grace


No need to move body or any stuff

You don’t need to travel or get on a bus

Use a new mind to set a direction

A new sense of purpose a new intention


Just step back get out of your way

Your guidance system navigates any fray

One day you wake up know you are there

You started over without that old fear


Recall a time when you began a project with a clear sense of purpose?

What was that like and how did it feel?

Now think of a project you began that was not connected to a clear personal purpose?

What was that like?

What was the main difference?

What do you want to begin today?

How will you do that?
