BE A BEGINNER #AtoZChallenge #LifeLessons

a beginning is free
of the burden of experience
it is an open window
that lets possibilities
flow through it freely
no scepticism
no irony
a clean slate
a potential destiny
Do you remember your first day at school, or college, or work? Can you muster half of the excitement and thrill now that you felt in that first moment of a new beginning?
If birds could write journals and animals could create memoirs , I am sure even for them the first flight, the first hunt, the first leap would be memorable and spectacular.
Over the years we drown ourselves in experience, we wear the know-it-all hat and let go of the possibilities of fresh perspectives that a beginner has, our success makes us stop learning anything new and gradually we become a stubborn deadwood.
Look at the world from a child's perspective and you may find joy again in the changing colours of the sky or just a queue of ants pushing grains of rice home.
Be a beginner doesn't mean let go of your experience and fall in the same dungeons again, it only means imagine your being as a collection of treasure boxes, be ready to open and fill one small new box everyday.
The master class life and the big wide world will always have something at which you can be a beginner and experience its joy in your soul.
