Sometimes things happen and you find yourself in a place where you are starting all over again. Whether it’s of your own doing or someone else’s, starting over is not something that most of us want to do. Having been in our comfort zone for so long, dealing with change or having to start over, is not something that we easily and readily embrace. Especially when it’s a life altering situation like a divorce, broken relationship, lost job etc.
Depending on the event that lead to having to start over, it can often leave you in a state of shock.
Even if you brought it on yourself, you experience shock for a moment, or longer, as at the moment, it seems unbelievable that you did what you did. You may also go through the stages of grief.
But the sooner you get to the point of acceptance, you can move on.
It’s so funny, change is the only constant, but sometimes we can find ourselves in situations where change is the last thing we want to deal with in life. Sometimes that change could mean having to start all over again.
Starting All Over Again Can Be The Best Thing
Like I said, it’s not something that we look forward to but starting all over again can often be the best thing. Despite the challenges that may come with the change, having to start over can bring new opportunities, new benefits, and even new relationhips. It can also bring about a new you. But that depends on how you decide to deal with the situation.
It’s an opportunity to learn about yourself as well as a chance for personal growth and development.
Embracing change provides an opportunity for a new beginning. But that’s not always something that we see, when we are forced to embrace change. But one thing is sure. Starting all over again might be rough, but you are going to make it. It may be a challenge but you can rise above it. You simply need to take it one day at a time.
Starting All Over Again is Okay
The problem arises when we look ahead and we see all that is needed to be done to restore our position or recover from the situation and the task seems dauting. But it’s never an overnight accomplishment. Where ever you were before, it took time to get there. So all that’s really needed at that pont is to accept the challenge.
“The ultimate measure of a man (or woman) is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
So if you have found yourself in a situation where you have to start overr or you are starting all over again, then embrace it. It might be tough at first, but hold on, because you are going to be okay. Learn the lessons that you can from the situation and be a champion.
“To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It’s not about winning and losing; it’s about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge. It’s about embracing the pain that you’ll experience at the end of a race and not being afraid. I think people think too hard and get afraid of a certain challenge.” Summer Sanders
