Our best chance at life


The idea of beginning again or trying again is daunting, overwhelming and disheartening. We’re creatures who find comfort in sticking to the way things are. It’s what we know. But the truth is that not everything we know works to give us our best chance at life. And when things aren’t working, we have to find a way to change them in order to give ourselves that best chance. Sometimes our relationships with other people are restricting or our relationship with ourselves is unhealthy. Sometimes our environment weighs us down or our day to day life doesn’t inspire us. Sometimes what we desperately hope will work won’t. And this is when we should tell ourselves that it’s ok to turn over a new leaf, whether it’s to plunge into the unknown or take a little dip. Because we all deserve our best chance at life. And we’re the ones who bestow that gift to ourselves. Don’t hide it away.

Beginning Again

Henry Ford Begin Again quote

Every new year, we set resolutions, we think about our dreams and goals and try to put them into a possible future, but we don’t always live up to those expectations. But there is a first of every month, there is a Monday to every week, there is a clean slate tomorrow, and there is most certainly this very minute. We can begin again. We can keep going. We just have to make up our minds to. Let’s not put off our dreams, goals and tasks because we cannot be bothered at that moment. Let’s not give up now because we failed yesterday. Let’s not sit idly because we don’t feel capable or enough. Our being, future, fate, are made up by our attitudes and choices every day. It might not be easy, but let’s choose to begin again.

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again. Only this time more wisely – Henry Ford
