You Can Reinvent Yourself
By Rev. Laurie Sue Brockway
As the song goes, you’ve got to “accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative.
Changing our lives for the better begins with a choice. Often it means letting go of the things that no longer serve us and taking small, but significant, steps in the direction of the life we want to be living.
Whether you begin the process with one small step in the right direction or a big leap of faith, it is important to have a sense of purpose and mission for any goal you choose to pursue. Keep your eye on the prize as you move forward. There may be setbacks along the way—that is a natural part of transformation. Just keep in mind that they are temporary.
We asked readers about different ways they have reinvented their lives and how they have changed for the better. Enjoy these wonderful examples of people who made new choices and then changed their lives.
