Starting Over

starting overHave you ever had to start all over? Maybe not at everything but at something in your life that matters? What's your attitude been? Has it been one of these:

  • "Damn, why me? I had made it so far and now I have to start all over again? That's not fair", or perhaps
  • "I just won't bother. It took me so long to get to where I was and it was a lot of hard work. I'm not really 'up' for doing all that hard work again so I'll just move on to something else. It's not fair but oh well I'll find something else."  or
  • "Life has treated me so unfairly and here we go again. Every time I get somewhere on the road to where I want to be, I get pushed off the road by something or someone and I have to climb back up the hill to get back on the road. Why me? Why not someone else? What did I ever do to deserve this? Why didn't this happen to Johnny? He doesn't work as hard as I do and he's mean." or
  • "OK, so I have to start over. What have I learned in getting to this point of having to start over. I know there's some very good and important lessons here that I have to pay attention to - if I do, I'll get even further this time. I am really excited to try new and different approaches this time to make the most of the opportunity I have. I am so grateful I do have the opportunity to start over."

I would pick the last one for sure.   What good does it do to lament what you don't have anymore? None and in fact, focusing on what you've lost and how unfair it is, stimulates the Law of Attraction to bring you more of that - more loss and "unfairness". You definitely don't want that.

Look at starting over as a blessing. What can you enjoy this time that you didn't get to enjoy the first time around because you were going so fast and were just checking off blocks. Take some time to smell the roses this time. Remember that tomorrow never comes so what can you be grateful for that you have today or that happened today. Be grateful that you had the opportunity to start over and do things even better this time. Savor the experience. You probably didn't savor it before.

Don't rush it this time either. Enjoy it. Learn more from it. Meet more people this time. Give more back to the Universe as you're experiencing this restart.

Your attitude will make everything so much better and rich the second (or third) time around. I promise. It's all in the attitude.

Enjoy yourself!
