Do you think life is what you make it? Do you think that you can decided how your story goes? Do you think perhaps its time to start a new series rater than a new chapter or a new page in your life? You see, we go through many seasons in life and I think sometimes we keep writing the same book adding pages or chapters, when we should perhaps start a new series.
What's your thing reading or watching movies? Either way, I am sure that if you find a good story, you will keep following it. When I see a book and the title appeals to me, I open the pages and read the table of contents. Each chapter has to be as appealing as the title, the stories within each chapter needs to capture me. As with life some books are short stories and some are long. Have you ever thought of the tile of your life story. Will you have a large book with many chapters that tells your story? Will you choose to write a series sharing the various seasons of your life and how they unfolded? Will you choose to write at all or will someone else be telling your story?
I like is journaling, it is a great way to get thoughts, ideas and dreams down and I believe it is best done on paper with a pen in hand. I also like reflecting from time to time as I read from old journals. This is not to live in the past but rather to see how the journey has unfolded. I like to reflect on the lessons learned and the things that have been overcome. To re-evaluate and set goals that haven't been achieved and perhaps given up on.
If you're wondering when is a good time to start a new series rather than new chapter or a new page; I would suggest the moment when you decide to set a new goal, change careers, move house, finish school... or when you decide to get out of your comfort zone. You see the pages are the days we get in life. The chapters are the daily living. Each series represents the choices we have made through the seasons. You might even have a series within a series, as the writer is the same person but each new book should be an improvement from the one before; as lessons are learned and the journey unfolds.
Take a moment to stop and reflect - is it time for you to start a new book, is it time to say goodby to a few things in your past, is it time for a fresh beginning. If you answered yes to any of these then I encourage you to take a moment to finish your last chapter well. Its time for you to step out with hope and with faith take a leap to writing your next book. Be encouraged it's never too late to have new dreams or to follow your dreams.
