Where Do We Start

Do we really ever start anything?
Clearly, it has been a while since I started to write this addition to my blog.
It is funny, I don't have a problem adding thoughts here once I get started, something spills out.
One thing is for sure, if I do not start it, nothing gets written.

So, I got to thinking about getting started.
Do we have total control over what we start?
It is good to be self-motivated a self- starter as they say, but really....
We don't start anything from scratch.
Someone or something starts things for us.
We may miss those moments that come before our awareness.

Our hearts don't start themselves with each beat.
We do not start the day.
It will start with our without our permission.

We may decide to end some things.
But we are not the original source of anything.

All creations, ideas and sensations were started before we ever knew it.
We just jump in, respond or back away from the creations and opportunities that we are blessed with.

So, I will end with this...
It is exciting to be part of something that has just gotten started.
It is important to know we can be part of that start-up up until we are not.
I want to remember to stay humble and remember who is the real creator of all start-ups.
Be thankful for the time spent in each season of my life.

All life is transactional.
The End ...
.....or is it the start of the time in between now and the next time I start?

Great blog on a really good subject. We always want to think that we started something when really we were just the next bird to carry the pebble. Welcome back to Blogville, Pickle. It is the silence between notes of music that allow us to dance.
