Begin Anew

Believe that you can, and you will.
Imagine yourself to be the type of person you want to be, and then be it.
You may have to let go of some bad habits
and develop some more positive ones, but don’t give up
for it is only in trying and persisting that dreams come true.

Expect changes to occur, and realize that the power
to make these changes comes from within you.
Your thoughts and actions, the way you spend your time,
your choices and decisions determine who you are
and who you will be.

You are capable and worthy of being and doing anything.
You just need the discipline and determination to see it through.
It won’t come instantly, and you may backslide from time to time,
but don’t give up.

Life is an ever changing process, and nothing is final.
Therefore, each moment and every new day
is a chance to begin anew.
