To Begin Again

I saw the new film Begin Again directed by John Carney (the writer/director of Once) and starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly. I enjoyed it on many different levels – the realism, the music, and the wonderful cast. 
What I enjoyed most about it, and for that matter any art form, is when it takes my mind on tangents that are sparked by what I saw, heard or read.
By the title alone you can tell this one made me think about “beginning again” and all that implies on so many levels.
Sometimes we are forced to begin again. Maybe it’s because of a great loss, a freak accident, or a life altering experience. Sometimes we choose to begin again. Maybe it’s starting a new job or career, moving to a new location, or the choice to retire.
There’s no doubt a difference between being forced to begin again or choosing to begin again, but for the most part the emotional, psychological and even physical aspects are somewhat the same.

Whenever we are faced with having to begin again there are things we have on our side that we can use to make the experience fulfilling. Feel passionate about your new beginning. Let it be uncompromising. Be confident and look only forward to all the wonder that lies ahead. Plus, proceed with joy and a dash of humor.
As the great philosopher – poet John O’Donohue writes in his blessing For a New Beginning.
Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm.
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
Enjoy all your new beginnings,

One thought on “To Begin Again

  1. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll
    just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new
    to everything. Do you have any points for inexperienced blog
    writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
