Starting Over—New Beginning!



New Year’s Day is often thought of as a restart button. I’m gonna change on this date. I’m gonna shed my old skin and emerge fresh and new—smarter, stronger, kinder, more resilient. I’m gonna be a leader and a healer. I’m gonna get in shape—physically and mentally. I’m gonna reimagine a world where folks don’t beat up on each other.

In my dreams, we’ll all change—starting today. We’ll stop being hateful to each other because of religion or politics or race or social status. We’ll stop stealing from each other and we’ll won’t attack each other’s confidence. We won’t have those nasty nightmares born of abuse or war or our own sins.

And if we do all those things, the world will reset and things will be okay again.

But we all know, even if we execute all of those New Year’s Resolutions perfectly, it won’t erase all the pain already generated in the world. It also won’t protect us from future pain. Healing is a continuous effort. And that’s my goal for this new fresh year…to focus on building an enormous toolkit of coping startegies.

Join me in my efforts. Either by participating openly in this blog as we launch various tools—or by simply focusing on yourself.

NEW BEGINNING

by Tracy Chapman

The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing It's time to start all over, make a new beginning There's too much pain, too much suffering Let's resolve to start all over make a new beginning Now don't get me wrong I love life and living But when you wake up and look around at everything that's going down All wrong You see we need to change it now, this world with too few happy endings We can resolve to start all over make a new beginning Start all over Start all over Start all over Start all over The world is broken into fragments and pieces That once were joined together in a unified whole But now too many stand alone There's too much separation We can resolve to come together in the new beginning Start all over Start all over Start all over Start all over We can break the cycle - We can break the chain We can start all over - In the new beginning We can learn, we can teach We can share the myths the dream the prayer The notion that we can do better Change our lives and paths Create a new world And Start all over Start all over Start all over Start all over The whole world's broke and it ain't worth fixing It's time to start all over, make a new beginning There's too much fighting, too little understanding It's time to stop and start all over Make a new beginning Start all over Start all over Start all over Start all over We need to make new symbols Make new signs Make a new language With these we'll define the world And start all over Start all over Start all over Start all over ...
