About beginnings

October 16, 2012

Beginnings could happen more than once, or in different ways. 
You could think you were starting something afresh, 
when actually what you were doing was carrying on as before.
Rachel Joyce
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

This is one of the most profound observations I’ve read.
The brain has a powerful way of allow us to fool ourselves.
Over and over.
So how do we know if it’s a new beginning or just more of the same?
This is a discussion I’ve been having with a young person
and I’d love to hear other thoughts on it.
