FRESH START

“And suddenly, you know: It is time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
-Meister Eckhart

This isn’t about the new year, the new week or month. It’s about a whole new life. Far away from the comfort of my loved ones. A whole new perspective while retaining my old dreams and goals.

Starting afresh has always been a nervous step for me - too many uncertainties. Meeting new people, learning new cultures and adapting to a whole new environment not being sure of how it would all turn out.

I’m a chess player. Born and trained to plan and see many many moves ahead, even to the endgame while at the opening of the game. But not being able to foresee, predict and properly plan several major occurrences within the year gives me fever and makes me sober.

For a few days, I’ve been “Cryptic” as a result of my extensive ponder on this matter. Several minutes ago, while flipping through my book “Boost your grades”, I stumbled upon the opening quote and it gave me some kind of relief.

Meister Eckhart is totally right. There is indeed magic in new beginnings. But how and where I can find this “Magic” is another minor concern.

Would it be in form of a pretty damsel of my preferred shape, complexion, charisma and character or in form of intellectual, psychological or physical growth and exposure.
Or preferably, in form of Financial increase.

What! Is this ‘Magic’? 🤔

I just have to trust it - The Magic of New Beginnings. That’s the only option on the Menu. 🤷

I hope it turns out for the best and treats me nicely even as I embark on the compulsory service to my country in an unknown far away land.

It feels like I now walk in the shoes of Cobhams - Having “Blind Faith” in my Fresh Start.

On the bright side, I know my God is up to something. And this is just a piece in the puzzle.

Therefore, Let come what may. 💪
