“Starting All Over”, A Daily Book of Miracles, by Krista M. Moore
Daily Miracle Message
Starting all over isn’t easy. No matter what has happened to change your world, know that you will find your way forward.
In my own life, I saw change come in many forms and had to start all over. As a child, we moved a lot. I went from school to school. Growing up in a smaller town, it wasn’t easy to make friends when you are the new kid. Kids pick on you. When you’re an adult and have to change jobs, or go through a divorce, or go back to school later in life, it may feel like you’re starting all over again. In some ways this is good, and in other ways, it can feel overwhelming. Especially if your change involves death. It can seem like the end of the world for a very long time…
One thing I do see now, God has gotten me through everything in my life. I learned so much from each transition. Starting all over in my late 20’s in a brand new city as a single mother, I grew muscles I didn’t know I had; I gained skills of compassion and depth and insight that came with experience and the ability to respond to new environments and demands.
After the devastation of 9/11 and losing two loved ones within a week of each other, I was able to rebuild my world, and turn inward; decide what kind of world I wanted to create. I eventually got out of the corporate job I held for 10 years, and expanded my family, to live my creative dreams while raising my own kids. And I got to travel the world and live on my own terms. From cocoon to butterfly, mother’s womb to a whole new world, I developed the ability to embrace the new and love life again.
I did this through a lot of prayer, reflection, tears, fears, letting go, and finally making choices that felt like the right thing to do. And eventually, those changes, sometimes big, sometimes small, led to the most amazing and fruitful life, a life I could not see until those changes happened to me.
Starting all over was a gift. I didn’t always ask for it, but God gave me the strength to go forward and showed me new possibilities. And now I am so grateful I took the leaps into the dark and found the Light I was truly needing, shining my way into the most beautiful life.
