Today I learned about beginnings.
What do you think of when someone says beginnings?
I think of the beginning of the school year. Today was my first day back. The new school year is different every year, but I always enjoy the new experience. I am learning that a beginning gives you a fresh start. They encourage you to do better than last school year. Ever write something wrong? The backspace key is your best friend right? Yes, but can you backspace your life? No, you just have to do better the next day.
And I think about the Olympics. Every athlete there had to start somewhere. It’s not like they join a sport and are amazing at it. No, they had to go through the process of learning. Then, if they really like it, they keep going. Until one day, they are so good at it that they go to the Olympic finals. Then, the teams are chosen. They compete and give their very best, and maybe even win gold. I learned that they couldn’t have gotten there without a beginning.
I learned almost anything you can think of has a beginning. A book, a movie, and even life! Beginnings are everywhere, all around us. Seeing new life everywhere is really inspiring.
