I was recently on the Trending Music section of YouTube and came across the song “Move On” by Mike Posner. I must say, I’m not very familiar with Mike Posner and was only aware of a couple of his songs, but I decided to give this one a listen. I wasn’t disappointed. The video is touching, and the song is inspiring. If you’re interested in seeing it, here it is ⇾ Mike Posner – Move on
One line in the song, in particular, stuck out to me. It was… “Beginnings always hide themselves in ends”. This resonated with me because I, like many others, tend to focus on the endings in life. I think about the people I’ve lost, the times I’ve failed, the opportunities that have passed me by – without realizing that beginnings are hidden beneath each one. Looking back, I’ve recognized that each time I’ve experienced a setback, I was only being set up for something bigger – a new start.
New beginnings are beautiful, hopeful, and motivating.
And, with the start of a new year, I thought it was perfect timing for a bit of inspiration. Here are 19 quotes about new beginnings.
