New beginnings!

Written by Denise Mortati

“Time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings.”
–Meister Eckhart, German theologian, philosopher and mystic

There’s nothing like a beginning! The start of a new project, a new job, a new relationship. It’s exciting, intoxicating and fills us with energy that we never knew we had.

Yet, we often manage the same dull tasks every day, day after day, never giving ourselves a “new” task to uplift our hearts, minds and souls, and to stretch ourselves, expand ourselves.

What new thing can you begin today? Pick something fun (nothing work-related!), and give yourself time to dedicate to it. A new book you’ve been wanting to read for a while? A yoga or Pilates class you’ve always wanted to try? A phone call to arrange dinner with a new friend?

Life is best lived with wonder, curiosity and possibilities. Let go of your routines for just an afternoon or evening, and watch what happens!

Call to action: As always, let me know in the comments below the new thing you tried this week!

My legal coaching practice helps attorneys rediscover their passion and look forward every day to a fulfilling career. I do this through one-on-one, group and corporate coaching, using specialized techniques and practices that help to clarify goals and priorities, and balance work and personal time. I support clients in finding peace in their careers and within themselves. I’m also a practicing attorney in a solo practice, so I, too, am “walking the walk” with my clients! I feel that my life’s mission is to change the paradigm of what a law career is “supposed” to be. Contact me at or visit my website,
