New Chapters

In Thoughts on June 10, 2013 at 2:13 pm

For me, when I know something new is coming my way I like to daydream often about how this new chapter of my life will play out. Daydreaming gets me excited for the future. It makes me believe that there are endless possibilities for what I can do with this new time in my life. I like to characterize new periods of my life. I like to think of my life as a book… although many new beginnings and endings are blurred, sometimes there is something obvious that marks the line and will be remembered. I think of certain periods and remember who I was, who I was becoming, and what version of myself I was yearning for at the time.

I’ve always enjoyed perfumes as scent is probably my most sensitive sense. Perfumes, to me, remind me of certain times in my life. They represent some of the more evolved chapters of my life, starting at age 12. I love how scents can take you back in time, how they can make you remember certain feelings and excitements. That said, I am excited to search for my newest scent! What will it remind me of? Who will it make me want to be? What will it tell others about me? These are some of the bigger questions I confront when searching as for me it goes far beyond “yes it smells good/no it doesn’t.”

I love beginnings. I love mornings, and the hopes that come with these times. I have many hopes for this new time in my life and I know I will be able to live up to most of them. Nothing energizes me quite like the promise of a new start. I am moving tomorrow, something I feel is a huge change for me. I am finally moving close to an area of the city I have always wanted to live. This new chapter holds so many promises for me and I am so glad the time has come! Today my head will be in the clouds through all my desk-ridden endeavors as I will be dreaming of this new chapter. Does anyone else get this excited for new beginnings? I always feel so awakened and alive!
