When life “forces” you to start all over and rebuild your life from scratch, instead of panicking and looking at the whole thing as a punishment, and instead of allowing fear to paralyze you, you can look at it the whole experience as a new chance. As a new opportunity for you to craft your life on a stronger and healthier foundation. A new chance for you to be happy. To start all over and show the world what you are really made of.
Each day is a gift given to you by life itself. Each day is a new beginning, a new chance and a new opportunity for you to create something better, something new. To offer more value to the world around you, and to reveal more of yourself to those you love. Each day is a new life, each moment is a precious gift. So make the best of each day. Make the best of each moment.
Here are some things you can do to start all over and rebuild your life from scratch.
1. Be patient.
Starting all over and rebuilding your life from scratch is not an easy thing to do. It requires a lot of inner strength, courage, self-love, resilience, faith and confidence. And since most of these things take time to be developed, you need to learn to be patient and gentle with yourself. And you need to treat yourself with love, compassion and understanding. So make sure you do just that.
“No, this is not the beginning of a new chapter in my life; this is the beginning of a new book! That first book is already closed, ended, and tossed into the seas; this new book is newly opened, has just begun! Look, it is the first page! And it is a beautiful one!” ~ C. JoyBell C.
2. You are not a finished product.
Acknowledge the fact you are not a finished product and that life is a continuous process of becoming. You go through life to find yourself, to become yourself. Through every little thing you do, through every word you say and through every action you take, you are meant to discover more and more about yourself. About your inner journey, your life path and about the purpose and meaning of your own life.
3. Embrace change.
Life is constantly changing, constantly evolving and constantly renewing itself. And since life is what flows through all of us, we ourselves need to constantly embrace change, and we need to constantly renew ourselves in order for life to flow through us, and in order for us to feel fully alive once more.
4. Accept what is.
Surrender to what is. And no matter how hard and difficult it might be, accept the situation you are in as if you have chosen it. Embrace your current reality. Make peace with the present moment and you will be at peace all throughout your journey.
“Accept–then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it… This will miraculously transform your whole life.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
5. Immerse yourself deeply into the NOW.
Take deep cleansing breaths throughout the day. Pay close attention to your breathing and with each breath you take, immerse yourself even more deeply into the present moment.
6. Engage in conversations with the Source of all things.
Engage in vulnerable, humble, honest and meaningful conversations with the Source of all things. Ask God, Allah, the Universe, the Tao… the Source of all things, to guide you, to help you and to assist you. And at the end of each conversation, make sure you say an honest “thank you” for all the wonderful and precious gifts life will continue to send your way.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” ~ Philippians 4:6
