New Beginnings | Debbie Shannon

Spring is in full bloom and summer is just around the corner. It’s that sweet time of year for hanging sheets on the line to dry, for picking lilacs and keeping them in a jar on the nightstand, and for taking in the sweet smell of freshly cut grass and barbecue smoke. With each new season comes new beginnings: graduations, weddings, babies, a new job, a new house. A fresh way of looking at life. 

Still some of you might find yourselves in your own version of Groundhog Day. You get up, go to work, clock in a bunch of hours so someone else can live in a mansion, go home, eat, go to bed, then get up and repeat that same day over and over. All the while, you might think this kind of life is normal, because you’re responsible, and that’s just what you do.

To quote Queen Latifah’s character, Georgia Byrd, in the movie Last Holiday, “You know how it is. You keep your head down and you hustle and hustle. Then you look up one day and wonder, ‘How did I even get here?'” Georgia decided to check off her bucket list because she thought she only had a few weeks to live. I’m not saying you should quit your job and sell all your stocks to go skiing in Karlovy Vary, but there are steps you can take that will allow you to start checking off your bucket list. In my upcoming book, Why Wait? A practical guide to checking off your Bucket List right now!, I’ll show those steps. I’m on track to have the book published by the end of the year. I’ll keep you all posted. 

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

I wish you all peace!
