Change always scared me. Any deviation in my own microcosmos brought nothing but anxiety. But then, one day, I asked myself, “What makes change so intimidating?”

It hit me then that it wasn’t change that was so unnerving, but failure. I was frightened that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with new challenges and new demands.

But that’s not a good way to go through life. So I decided to embrace all change and welcome new beginnings. Because that doesn’t come naturally to me, I assembled these wonderful new beginning quotes to remind me that change is inevitable. We shouldn’t shy away from new beginnings but take them as the opportunities they are. Envision them as a chance to reinvent ourselves and start something new. Be brave and take that first step.
