Words of Encouragement for New Beginnings

Dr. Dao has helped to create new beginnings for many families. As we usher in a new year, enjoy this summary of his words of encouragement that apply to all of us beginning a new time cycle. Life itself is hope. It is like a dream or a wish that comes true. You should always, always have hope. Yes, you might be getting older; you might have health issues. It doesn’t mean you give up. Just be sure you balance your wish with reality.

Your bags are packed. Hopefully, you’re mentally, physically, and emotionally prepared for the road that lies ahead. Before you move forward, let’s not forget the most important thing of all: love. After all, love is what is driving your journey. It’s love for what you wish to welcome into your life; love for the ability to extend your energy. And then there is the love you feel for the people sharing this journey with you.

Nurture that love. It will be your ultimate strength.
