Dash of Sass: Turn the Page
It’s a new day, a new month, a new season. A new start. Turn the page. Don’t stay stuck re-reading the last chapter because what’s to come is uncertain. Everything in life that matters starts off with a little uncertainty. The stories your life has told in the past were good…and they got you to today…so be thankful for them, but then let them go. Turn the page. Allow yourself to be the leading lady (or gentleman) of your life. Walk in confidence into the next chapter of your life. Let some characters run off the page without chasing them…for if they were meant to be protagonists of your prose, they surely wouldn’t have to be endlessly pursued. Turn the page. Don’t devote another book, another chapter, another paragraph, another word, another FOOTNOTE to people who don’t appreciate and respect and deserve you. Make room for new characters to arrive…characters that will make you laugh and cry and stretch and grow and become a better person. Turn the page. Stay open to plot twists, to edits, to rewrites, to the unexpected. Stop searching for a happy ending and start creating a happy LIFE. Let go of the hurts, the mistakes, the doubts, the fears, the struggles, the moments that have made you feel small…and realize that anyone or anything that tries to shrink you only succeeds in making you bigger and bolder and better. Turn the page. Tell your story in YOUR voice, in your way, in your timing…and stop asking permission to go where you want to go and do what you want to do and feel how you want to feel. It’s a new day, a new month, a new season. A new start. Turn the page.
