Important to begin with feeling

Think about the last time you began something important. Are you thinking about it?

Good - now ask yourself how you began it.
Did you make small, tentative first steps? Or did you jump in with gusto?
Promise yourself that the next time you kick off something important in your life, you'll start with a ceremony where you declare your feelings.
The reason to do this is simple, we need a certain amount of ceremony in our lives to mark important occasions. Our societies and groups that we belong to have the usual ceremonies that are standard practice for new beginnings or endings (Christenings, Graduations, Weddings, Funerals, etc.).
We, however, can and should, create our own ceremonies to mark the beginning of a new chapter in our life. These may be very private ceremonies or they may be very public, but we do or should hold them.

I am a big believer in public declaration so that those for whom we care, are able to support us as we move forward. What is your ceremony to celebrate the new in your life?
