New Beginning or New Ending?
One of the well-known quotes on a new ending in life is by Carl Bard.
Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.
Although no one seems to know who "Carl Bard" was, this statement has endured as words of wisdom about what it takes to change your life based on self-trust. You look toward the ending rather than the beginning.
However, these few pithy words are worth challenging.
The past is over. You can't live your life over. You couldn't fix the past if you tried. You also can't create your new ending. You can hope for it, plan for it, and dream about it, but nothing in human life guarantees what your new ending will be.
What you can create is a new beginning right now. That's all any of us has. Now.
If you trust yourself, you can start with where you are at this moment, in this stage of your life, and decide that you are willing to change now. You don't have to fix the past to do it.
You can begin right NOW.
