Everyday You Get to Start Over…

unless you don’t.

The problem is you never know how much time you have left to begin again. If you are given the gift of another day, you get to choose.

StartOverYou can wallow in the issues you think are unsurmountable, continue to have your own little pity party (it’s kind of lonesome there by yourself, right?) and stumble around in this “Woe is me” attitude or you can pull the nail out of your foot – you know, the one that has your foot nailed to the floor – stuck (not going anywhere) and begin again.

Feeling absolutely paralyzed? Going down hill at full speed? Life has less zing to it? The issue is not whether we are stuck. The issue is how we pull ourselves out of this mess and get our lives going in a better direction again.

Life is short! Happiness is a choice. Staying stuck is also a choice. Redirect your focus. The harder you run from what you don’t want, the closer you come to it. You are either moving closer to a life that holds unlimited possibilities or further away from it. There is no fun in living life in the middle.

“When you fail to hit the target, it is never the target’s fault!” ~ Larry Winget

Different is a good thing. Yesterday is history. Challenge your negative thoughts and patterns. Stop believing what you think about your current situation. Give up blaming others. Carve your own path. Write yourself a better story. You need something bigger than the issue you are in to look forward to. Break out of your routine. This will help you free up your life to a multitude of surprises and joys.

Your heart always tells the truth. Listen to it and discover. What awaits you is how your life is going to open up next. It’s pretty scary and also pretty exciting. The idea of suffering and slowly dying in a life you hate has got to be worse than the pain of busting your ass to fix it. You always have the final word on what’s next. Be grateful you know this.

So… what are you going to do different today that might be a giant step forward?
