It’s the place we come back to: the place we started. It’s the first step to any dream: taking a step, however small it might be.

Famous people often refer back to this place, where they first started; where they began, whether a politician or movie star or any of us, really. We like to remember where we began, where it all started.

It’s the beginning of our stories. Understanding our beginnings helps us to understand one another better.

For any new project or victory to be overcome, we must first “begin.”

“In the beginning….”- in the Bible, God tells us about the beginnings of the earth that we live in. The beginning of all things, scientifically, is still a mystery to some; to others who choose not to believe, the beginnings are explained in other ways.

But there was a beginning.That much we can agree on. From there, we diverge.

If you are faced with a new project or task, and don’t know where to start– there is actually a very good place to begin.

On the knees.

All we do and say, our every day, should begin right there.

In order to get up and begin, we must first get down.

And that is where we begin.
