Envision a boat making it's way through the water....moving farther and farther from sight. Just a tiny object amidst an enormous ocean. It's journey comprised of endless possibilities, unlimited potential. It's destination could be anywhere in there world.
And while observing this boat as it glides over the water, nothing is more apparent than the freedom it contains. The beauty in knowing that it can follow it's soul into the sunset if it so desires.
And as you look onto this phenomenon you'll notice that it sheds no light on where the boat has been, nor on what has brought it this point. You won't see the wrong turns taken, the mistakes made, nor the obstacles that were overcome to get here.

What you will see is a seemingly fresh start, where every second of every minute is a new opportunity for the boat to go where it wants to go.....to be what it wants to be. It's "wake" has no impact on it's course. This is one of the most beautiful things about being alive.
Every single day provides a blank page in your story, for you to fill out as you see fit. Old habits, friends, mistakes, expectations....they exist in whatever capacity you allow them to. But they are not you. They are not indicative of your potential.
You are the Captain of your ship.
