You are not going on a journey, you are already on a journey; one that began when
    you were born. Instead, you are looking to make changes in your path, or select a
    new path - and that is exciting,  for it will lead to new and different outcomes; ones
    which will bring you joy, happiness, peace, and serenity.

    Sometimes, you just need a fresh start; a clean slate. Just get rid of everything
    gone/going wrong, and make it go right. Sometimes, you need to delete a number,
    do your hair, move to a new space, or quit a job. Purge all negative things, and focus
    on the positive. Just DO it.

    This growing section of stories about awakening, and re-direction, all written by those
    who travelled that road before, and who wanted to share their experience in a way
    that would help others; people like yourself. It is their way of paying forward the help
    they received, or the knowledge and insights that they were given.

    "We're all walking each other home", and I offer them here for you to explore and
    read at you leisure. May they provide you with your "ah-ha" moments, or give you
    insights as to what your next step can be - or an increased understanding of your
    own situation - or of others.

    Take your time, and enjoy. New stories added regularly.

    Perhaps you'd like to share YOUR story to help inspire others; or maybe
    you've come across a truly good, moving story about their successful journey:
    if so, please send it to me to add to the collection, thank you.
The importance of starting over
(New Beginning)

Each night you "die" to old habits and
beliefs that no longer serve you; and
each morning you are "resurrected" to
a New Life - IF you so choose.

It has been said that "no-one can
make a brand-new start (or beginning)
- that there's only one "start".  While
that is partially true, - it is also true
that anyone can redirect their path,
at any time, toward new outcomes.

That fundamental truth provides Hope:
you can switch paths, or back-track a
bit to a different fork, or create a
fresh, brand-new trail. The choices are
