We’ve all experienced it. We’ve all faced challenges that have changed our lives forever. Sometimes I like to call them:
- Road blocks
- Hic cups
- Set backs
One thing is for certain though – in order to survive we have to find a way to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and start all over again. But this time, think about it as starting FROM THE MIDDLE.
So many times I’ve heard people say: “I have to start all over again. It’s like I’m back to square one.” But if you really step back and take a hard look at your situation, you’ll realize that you learned a lot in the process. Whether it’s a:
- Halted career
- Sick child
- Lost love
Or anything else in between. You are definitely not the same person as you started so you cannot go back to the same place from where you came. Because of your experiences, you are now smarter, stronger and more resilient. Mostly, you know that you can survive the hic cups in your life because you’ve done it before.
So the next time life throws you a curve, take a deep breath, acknowledge all that you have learned and start over again – but this time, start FROM THE MIDDLE.
