I love the feeling of making a fresh start, like having a blank canvas of life in front of you, ready to be coloured with new experiences. I recently had a sea change, moving from the mountains to the ocean, and I love the fresh energy of this place! I feel like I’m starting over, creating a new life for myself filled with all the things I’ve always wanted to do and see.
Now, I don’t think you need to move to a new location to start over, sometimes a new beginning is simply in the mind; a change of attitude, or a fresh perspective on things. For me it’s about thinking how I want my life to be, and then taking action to make it a reality, and most importantly: following my passions.
New beginnings are a major theme in my writing; following characters through change as they go from one reality to another, and experiencing their joys, triumphs, and challenges along the way. I like the fact that when I start each new book, I get to experience my own new beginning all over again, through the eyes of my characters 🙂
