You know how you start something so enthusiastically only to look up somewhere down the road and realize that you had stopped…given up…quit? Maybe it’s a diet, exercise routine, a special project, or following your dream. It happens to the best of us. Hey. If we had stuck with it, we would have those six-pack abs, run that marathon, started that business, and made that million dollars by now. Right?
I started this blog a few years ago, then I let life get in the way. Things happened and days, then weeks, then months passed and I hadn’t done anything with this blog. Something I truly care about. There were times when I wanted to start back but was waiting….and waiting….and waiting for…..???? I guess I was waiting to be reinspired, or for my schedule to be just right, or……????
And then some of those negative thoughts like disappointment and doubt start creeping in. Do you know the feeling? We’re supposed to persist and not give up and follow through. Right? But, we’re only human. If we keep looking backward, we’ll never move forward. So maybe we stopped, for however long and for whatever reason. Maybe there’s a chance we might stop again. But, there’s always a chance to Begin Again. That is so EMPOWERING, isn’t it? Knowing / remembering that we always have the chance to Begin AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN if that’s what we want, and if that’s what it takes. It’s our choice.
So….with that…..Let us Begin Again!
