There is something so wonderful and magical about a new year, a new week or even a new day. It is no wonder that there are so many idiomatic expressions to capture the essence of a new beginning, a tabula rasa, a top of the day, a clean slate, a dawn of a new day, a turning point. Mondays are filled with magical moments. Because they signify the start of a new week, Mondays give me the freedom to change direction if I wish, begin a new adventure or venture. And I find great comfort in knowing that if something isn’t going the way I had hoped, I can always try something different and see if I get better results. Yes, there is always tomorrow—tomorrow is another day, so take advantage of the opportunity to make a fresh start of whatever you want!
A New Start.
By Bernard Shaw
I have wiped the slate clean,
No more reminders from the past.
Memories of what I have been,
Have vanished at long last.
I look forward to my future new,
Where all is territory strange.
Soon I will be among the few,
That plans their life at long range.
I see my life laid out at my feet,
New friends shall rally at my call.
They will be the first I will greet,
At this my welcoming ball.
Soon all memories will depart,
Of a past left well behind.
I will get off to a new start,
With the best of mankind.
