4 Ways to Start a New Chapter


Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward.” I agree! The first half of the year has come and gone! I have grown in numerous ways, and I have made several changes. I could no longer be still! Some of the changes have been minor, but I can tell the difference that they have made.

I also made two major changes: I began a healthier lifestyle, and I completed my transition from relaxed hair to natural hair. I feel more freedom, bolder, and rejuvenated! Accomplishing these two long-term goals helps me to trust that I can achieve more of my goals. Furthermore, I feel that I have started a new chapter.

It has not been easy starting a new chapter, but it has been worth it! Like so many others, I kept saying that I wanted to change. Complaining and feigning a strong desire to change didn’t get the job done! I had to make a decision to work at completing daily tasks (like reading the first sentence of a book). Then, I had to stop shirking and be diligent.

Franz Kafka said, “By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” I had to realize that my life would not be transformed without strong convictions and sincere efforts. I am looking forward to the second half of this year, and I am expecting greater things! You can too.
