“Fresh Starts: It’s all about the attitude”
You got to love fresh starts.
I just wish I’d had a grasp on this concept while growing up. As a kid, I moved around a lot and each new school could have been a fresh beginning. A time to be someone with a whole different outlook, a time to face an interesting
Unfortunately, it didn’t feel that way!
To me it was another struggle to make friends, learn about another school, decide if I liked a teacher, and be the new kid all over again. You know where “the” click of girls either hated you or liked you, depending if “the” boy
noticed you or not.
So not my cup of soda pop.
But now as an adult, I’m grasping onto the Fresh Start
Attitude and holding on tight.
With every change in my life—no matter what size–I do my best to turn it around and find the good. Maybe it was all that anxiousness as a kid and feeling out of place that
makes me want to see the better side of things today.
Even when the going gets tough, I might dwell on it for a bit, but then brush myself off and look for a new beginning.
You see, it’s all about keeping your chin up and looking for the positive side of things.
Yeah, with fresh starts, it’s all about the attitude. 🙂
