August 2020, Starting Anew


…Let today be the start of something new!

Many of us have had our routines disturbed these past few months and we still cannot make sense of things.  It’s a struggle to adapt to the new normal and I am debating whether to send my younger daughter to school. The only thing I know for sure is that I cannot remain in that uncertainty state.  I decided the best approach is to start anew.


Getting results from doing something small will bring hope and make life easier.

….and suddenly you know: it’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. Meister Eckart

What better way to motivate me than going back to my quotes book?  I hope these quotes inspire you the same way they did for me.  Let’s try to push ourselves and make this month of August a new beginning.

Take the first step with faith.  You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.  Martin Luther King, Jr.

You can start anew at any given moment. Life is just the passage of time and it’s up to you to pass it as you please.” Charlotte Eriksson

All great beginnings start in the dark when the moon greets you to a new day at midnight.” Shannon L. Alder

You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.  Maya Angelou

May this month of August may the beginning of something new for all of us.  May it bring hope, a sense of peace, and heal the pain of these past months.

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure”. Oprah Winfrey


  1. I really like the quote by Charlotte Eriksson. It does not matter when you start your life, what is important is that you start. You have 365 days a year to change something up and do something different.

  2. I love the title of this post, definitely worth reading and the photos you included are perfect. Those cloud formation are beautiful!

  3. I say a big Amen to the prayers. We can only hope and pray for the best. As the months go by, we will continue to stay hopeful for a better life ahead. Thank you for a refreshing post.

  4. Yes!! These past few months have been crazy. But it’s always amazing to know that we can hit the reset button whenever we want. Thanks for sharing!

  5. The past few months have been so odd. I don’t like uncertainty and so it’s caused a lot of extra anxiety. But slowly we are working ourselves into a new normal life.

    I really like the quote “ You can start anew at any given moment. Life is just the passage of time and it’s up to you to pass it as you please.” Charlotte Eriksson. It’s easy to forget that you don’t have to wait for a certain day or time to restart things.

  6. These last couple of months has really been crazy, that’s for sure. But I guess that’s just how life is, we really never know what’s around the next corner. I guess we just always have to keep our faith, try to stay positive and take one day at a time.

  7. Every day is a new beginning and every day there is something that we should be thankful and grateful. If we always have this philosophy in life, any struggles wouldn’t feel that heaviness.

  8. Honestly , I feel good reading this article of yours, i don’t know I find it powerful and inspiring that goes deep into my soul, not being overacting but that was I really felt while reading it. Lovely quotes.
