“Strength shows not only in the ability to persist, but in the ability to start over” – F.Scott Fitzgerald
One thing I love about myself is that I don’t mind starting over. I don’t fuss when I have to begin again. I don’t mind starting an exercise program for the 5th Monday in a row, or starting a diet again the next day because I couldn’t resists the brownies. Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t like the fact that I quit or gave into temptation, that’s not what I’m saying. I am saying that I don’t mind after my failure to start over. I don’t mind my mistakes. I actually get excited about starting over. I refuse to let my mistakes and failures whisper defeating words to me. Words like “never” and “always” . Mistakes like to tell me “You will never wake up on time…you will never accomplish your goals”. Failures like to tell me “You will always have no self control, you will always be this weight”
Each morning brings new possibilities. Each morning brings new chances. Heck every minute allows us a chance to change. Be encouraged today on your journey. Whatever mistake or failure you have had is NOT the end. Learn from it. Start again. Start over.
We have the power to create something new each day. Get excited with me!
