There are many firsts in life; birth, first day of school, first day driving, first day on the job, first day dead...
I'm reminded by this card first days are stressful, often we end up in overload and full of fear. But first days are also a chance to be enlightened and transformed. If we think we are already good enough, then isn't an opportunity to be better than good worth the effort?
"You're very hardy to have made it this far the first day. Has anyone said what we try to learn in here?"
Alanna said the first thing that came to her lips. "The only thing I know is that I jump when I'm told to and I have no free time." ~ Tamora Pierce 1958-
