Courage to Start Over

Don’t ever be afraid to start over.

It doesn’t matter which phase of life you are in or where you are in your relationship.

There will always be an opportunity to make a fresh start if needed.

Starting over is like diving into a large swimming pool filled with cold water.

Imagine, it’s a sweltering summer day, you’re extremely hot, you’re sweaty, and you really need to cool off.

You come across a nice swimming pool filled with clean, clear cold water.

If you only dip your toes in to test the waters, you will more than likely change your mind. You’re thinking it’s just too cold to dive in.

However, if you’re hot enough and you’re uncomfortable and you really want to cool off, you must muster up the courage, plant your feet firmly, take a deep breath, and dive in immediately!

Before you know it, your body temperature will begin to adjust to the water. You will start to feel extremely comfortable and cool. You may even start to wonder, “why didn’t I do this sooner?”

Why not begin today?  A new day is like a new year — you can begin again.

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
-Isaiah 43:19 (KJV)

Learn the lesson, leave the past in the past and move forward.

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before.
-Philippians 3:13 (KJV)

Just as it takes courage to dive into the swimming pool filled with cold water, it will also take some degree of courage to start over.  Not having the courage to make a fresh start will make you very uncomfortable.

However, with every new beginning comes along exciting experiences and opportunities.

The choice to start over begins with you.
