Reinvent yourself, today, tomorrow, next month, next year, once twice three times....Don't change what's in your heart, but you can always find different ways to live the life you have been given. Things change around us all the time, and when life doesn't seem to be working for us, we can reinvent so many different parts, how we see things, how we do things, how we eat, how we work, how we love, how we speak. Reinvent to improve your life, enhancing what is around you, seeing yourself in a positive light, feeling inspired, having a different outlook on the things that are changing around you.
Take pieces of who you are and figure out how you can make them better by reinventing what makes you happy and complete. Some reinventing can be greater than others, each situation might need to be a little different. What keeps you being you, that beautiful soul you were brought into this world with, is holding close what is important in your heart, your authenticity, that part of you that is unmistakably real. All the other stuff can be changed around, mixed up, switched, a new way to look a things, a new way to deal with things, a new way be, REINVENT what is within you. You may need to do it more than once in your life, depending on what is going on around you and within you.
Each chapter in your life may be a reinvention, beginning adulthood, parenthood, career-hood, marriage, divorce, loss of a loved one...each one of these opens up a new chapter for you to explore and reinvent. Don't be afraid to think of each chapter in your life as a reinvention of you, in the most honest and positive light. Most important, don't ever be afraid of asking for help, this isn't always easy to do by yourself, ask for help. This is what I am here for, one resource you can turn to for assistance in making necessary changes to improve that already wonderful you. Reinvent what makes you happy!!
