    Starting All Over

    Starting all over seems to be a common phrase that we all too often had heard or experienced ourselves. When we have to start all over, there are various situations that can come about. Think about how many times you "felt" like you started all over. What were the thoughts, emotions, feelings, dealings, people, and or places you had to start all over with?

    Starting all over never is as difficult as it appears in that moment at that time in that place. After you look back at things you wonder to yourself was starting all over worth it? Well let's ask yourself this question. Have you ever heard the phrase if at first you don't succeed try and try again? Well, it's a fact. I always told my son that practice makes better not perfect.

    So when in life you find yourself starting all over, perhaps putting a different point of view on it. Starting all over doesn't mean that you did something wrong. Starting all over doesn't mean that you are a failure. In fact starting all over means the opposite! Starting all over means you are strong, you have a back bone, and never are willing to allow defeat to win you over.

    It's believing in the future. It's knowing that if you push and pull enough you'll get to where you wanted to be all along. It's not about failing, it's about fighting to succeed. There are truly no wrong choices, only a path that may not lead us to where we thought we wanted to be.

    So no matter how much you really don't like starting all over again, it doesn't matter what you say or do. The fact is, you'll have no choice but to start all over again. So why not just enjoy the ride and see what comes out of it.
