You must be tired of old routines by now.
Repetition is the leading cause of death.
People grow weary of repeating old, negative patterns.
Our passion and interest for life is maintained by having large and healthy doses of newness. We need to continue learning new things in order to stay current and relevant. We need to have new opportunities to stay interested and engaged in life. We need change in order to grow.
Take a lesson from nature and open your life to newness. Don’t cling to the old. Let it go when it has finished serving you. Clinging to the old produces suffering. Everything has a lifespan; a time when it works, and then a time when it stops working. Don’t be afraid to release it when it stops working. Doing so will stop your suffering and make way for the new.
What’s new in your life? What new vision do you have? What new friends are you cultivating? What new loves hold your interest? What new dreams are you pursuing? What new ideas excite you?
Make Room For The New
It is a law of physics that no two things can occupy the same space at the same time. Therefore, to make room for the new, you must let go of the old. Here are some
suggestions on how to get started.
Go through your closets and throw, or give away all clothing that you haven’t worn in the last two years. Put it back into circulation. Give it to a charity or to someone else who would love to have it.
Clean out your house and garage. Get rid of everything that you don’t use regularly. Have a garage sale.
Check your thoughts and feelings. Do you have unspoken words or unforgiving thoughts? Clear them out. Do forgiveness work. Make sure you aren’t holding on to yesterday’s resentment.
