It’s so tempting at times to think that we are starting over when in reality we are never starting over.
Starting implies going back to the beginning. Before we learned the lessons life taught during challenge/failure/ending. As hard as it may have been, the truth is we gained as much as we lost.
Starting over usually is held by a sense of lack. Something lost that we must find again.
But remember all the good. Remember all the wisdom. Remember all the you that was found.
You are not starting from the same place. This is not a place of lack. This is now your place of abundance.
You know now what you did not know then. More importantly, you know you more now than you did then. And isn’t that what it’s all about? Isn’t that the gold, the win?
So, you’re not starting over. You’re moving on. You’re launching. You’re lifting your head and walking on. It’s that simple.
Unload your shoulders the burden of starting over and walk lightly forward, for that’s all we’ve ever been doing anyway.
