Peace Perspective XVI: Start Over

Good morning Friends (and if I don’t see you later, Good Afternoon, Good Evening and Good Night). ((Name that movie)).

Start Over - F. Scott FitzgeraldStarting over can be a scary thing. It can be a humbling thing. It can be admitting that you aren’t where you want to be. But the people who start over, who change course, learn new habits, try new things, these are the people I admire.

I’ve been stuck in a rut before. I’ve felt trapped in circumstances. Stepping out of the present circumstance can be scary, difficult, impossible. But it is so worth it.

So take the small step. Or if steps seem to be too much, write out what’s bothering you, what you want to fix.

Where do you find your strength?

  1. The Truman Show?

    When I read that quote (the one in the picture), the first thing I thought about was my healthy living journey. It still kinda blows my mind that I had the strength to “start over” by starting my journey in the first place. Every experience I had had with trying to be healthy prior to that had been miserable (largely because I had no clue what I was doing, and was actually doing really unhealthy things in the name of greater health), so I had honestly gotten to the point where I just resigned myself to being obese the rest of my life. I don’t think I’ll ever know why I randomly changed my mind about that, but I’m SO glad I did! I may have a long ways to go, at 2+ years into my journey and 6ish pounds heavier than when I started, but knowing that I had the courage to do something about it and that I have and will continue to have the strength to continue is priceless. Like you said, it’s so worth it! Even though my weight is back where it started, *I* have changed so much. And I wouldn’t trade that for anything.

    So I guess I said all this to say that if anyone else feels stuck or hopeless, it is never too late to start over, and you will be SO happy you did, even though sometimes things will be tough, and whatever journey you embark on may not go exactly as planned.

  2. i was talking to jon about this very thing yesterday – we were talking about where we are, and where we want to go, and all sorts of corrective steps that need to happen to balance it all out – always important to step back and reflect on this 🙂 do i sense some changes in your future?

    • I’m so glad you and Jon are communicative! No changes here, I’m actually pretty happy with how things are going these days.

  3. Love it! I thought about that a bit this weekend. I’m working on doing what makes me happy, which I’ve found I haven’t done as much as I thought in the last 7 years I’ve been married. It’s crazy!

    • You’ve been married 7 years?! That’s inspiring on its own! Do you and your husband talk about goals much?
