Nouveau Spotlight: Starting Over, Is Easy To Do.

Posted in Nouveau Spotlight with tags , , , , , on August 17, 2013 by James Field

With my back to the past, I charge forward.

This post is dedicated to new beginnings. Not the New Years Resolution, or the false intention sort of new beginnings, this is my promise to myself of starting from the drawing board (once again) and experiencing new and more exciting opportunities.

This past year has been filled with a plethora of highs, lows, achievements and failures for my family and I. After I turned 25 on June 25th of this year, I began to see myself in a different light. A new vision of myself began to emerge, a more resilient, focused, unafraid of judgment, and level-headed James was forming. For those of you who believe that starting over after you have sacrificed so much for something that you THOUGHT you always wanted, is difficult, I am here to tell you that it’s an illusion, just like all forms of fear.

They say that you are the captain of your own ship, if so then mine is a mega-yacht named the S.S Destiny. So if something doesn’t work out the way that you planned, it absolutely does not mean you cannot reinvent yourself, battle the waves, and continue to steer the course. Deepak Chopra put it best “The only goal worth attaining is complete freedom to be yourself, without illusions and false beliefs” (The Book of Secrets)

You have the ability in you to withstand tremendous pressure and sparkle to full brilliancy at the end. Take the pain and the disappointments and channel them, use them a catalyst to make your dreams come true. I’ve done it before in the past, and after the major failures and missed opportunities that I have endured this year, I plan on doing it again. What point is there in feeling sorry for yourself, when there is work to be done, art to be created, and goals to be surpassed? I am starting fresh with a new outlook, one that see’s the silver lining after any hardship, and one that is fully conscious of choices and decisions.

The past is the past, and all we have is the present. I truly believe in Karma, and if you have been hurt or wronged in any way, the Universe has a way of making that disappear and replacing it with immeasurable joy, in the most unexpected and unusual ways. Stay the course and you will reach the olive branch of your dreams.

Take it from me, starting over is easy to do.

Best wishes everyone, and thank you for reading. More post’s to come!
