“There are two reasons why people change. First, they’ve been hurt too much and second, they’ve learned a lot. “
Nothing can be scarier than the thought of losing and having to start all over again, over something you know you gave your best shot right? Definitely! But we shouldn’t be so scared to start over again, for it simply means life is giving us the opportunity to take new steps and truly rebuild what we want. Everyone wants happiness, sunshine, success and even some rainfall but we cannot have the rainbow without the rain, can we? It’s OK to start again.
To you, the world is desolate, dull, and empty. To another, the same world looks rich, interesting, and full of meaning. “Eyes that looks are common but eyes that see are rare”-J.Oswald Sander. You can never see the sunrise by looking to the west, no matter how much you look. New things can’t come if you can not let go of the old. Letting go isn’t easy but hanging on is suicidal.
If you continue to look at life the wrong way, there would always be cause for alarm. The same way a twenty dollar bill can look so big when it goes to church is the same way it looks so small when it goes for groceries. What you see depends largely on what you look at and how you look at it. Some people complain of roses having thorns but if you look at it closely, those thorns are protections for the roses.
” One of the greatest and most comforting truths is that when one door closes another opens, but regretfully, we look upon the closed door for so long that we do not see the one that is open for us.”
Starting over in life means you are willing to let go of what isn’t working or what’s holding you back. It doesn’t necessarily mean you have to hate who hurt you, or what’s hurting you. It simply means you are ready to create the life you want, with whosoever you are pleased with. While you are starting over, be sure to create attainable and realistic goals, surround yourself with people who believe and brings out the best in you. Avoid the wrong crowd!
Acknowledge your emotions and be sure to make sure they don’t influence your future decisions when you try to express them. Forgive yourself and all those who may have hurt you. Take a leap of faith and Start Over today!
Love and Blessings ❤️❤️
