Do over

There are no backspace or delete buttons in life, but don’t let that stop you from trying again. 
~ Christine Sternfels


I think we’ve all been in situations where you might say “Wish I could click undo.  Do over!” 

I’ve been there too many times and continue to realize that had I given up in my darkest moments, I wouldn’t be here.  Had I given up on love, I wouldn’t be happily married.  Had I given up on my daughter, someone else would be helping her plan her wedding.  Had I given up on my career, I wouldn’t be able to pursue my dreams.  We learn things along the way and we don’t find the value in pain and hardships at the time but it’s what helps us achieve.  Learning from our mistakes makes us wiser and more equipped to be able to handle, maintain and appreciate success.

Life is one lesson after the other.  Each time you fall flat on your face or even if it’s just a scratch, get up and start all over again.
