Chronicling 40: Day 187 of 365


Do you know what I love about the word “new”?  I love it’s endless implications.

The excitement of a new experience.  The joy of a new family member.  The peace of finding a new perspective.  The opportunity of being a new creation.

New means that the old has gone away.  I’ve replaced an old habit with a new one.  I’ve replaced a broken down car with a reliable new one.  I’ve replaced my past with a new future.

New means that I do not need to be shackled by was has happened, only open to what can happen.

Some people fear change, so much so that they would cling on to the comfort of the old… even when it isn’t good… because it’s familiar, expected, and predictable.

Challenge yourself to be open to new things.
