♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪Pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again♥ ¸¸.•*¨*•♫♪ 



Whether one is twenty, forty, sixty, or eighty; whether one has succeeded, failed or just muddled along - life begins each morning! The greatest fact in life is that it is never too late to start again. Biography simply overflows with inspiring examples of this truth. However discouraging your days may have been, keep this thought burning brightly in your mind: life begins each morning!

L.M. Hodges

February 11th - nothing to loose and everything to gain

There's a big difference between giving up and starting over in the right direction.  For everything you lose, you gain something else; and for everything you gain, you lose something else.  You don’t have to like it, but it’s just easier if you do.  So pay attention to your outlook on life.  You can either regret or rejoice; it’s your choice.

Nothing is ever wrong.  We learn from every step we take.  Whatever you did today was a necessary step to get to tomorrow. 


When just starting out on a new journey it's only natural to feel vulnerable. After all, it may seem that you have much to lose. But may I remind you that never again, at any other point in the same journey, will you have so much to gain.

Mike Dooley

Sometimes you need to leave everything you thought you wanted in order to begin again.  When starting over means nothing is the same and everything new.

To grow starting from nothing into something.  The unknown takes you to fresh and unforeseen areas in yourself.  Growth is impossible without change.  If you cannot change your mind, you cannot change anything in your life.  Sometimes all you need to do is look at things from a different perspective.


Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.

Arthur Ashe

I like two quotes this morning. "Start where you are." And "When starting over means nothing is the same and everything new." This is where my head is these days due to life circumstances.

 If you cannot change your mind, you cannot change anything in your life.  Sometimes all you need to do is look at things from a different perspective.....WELL SAID! As the boxer once said, you gotta roll with the punches!

We just need to keep pushing forward even if we have had a few set backs along the way. And if we can do it with gratitude, that is even better.

I'm loving that cheerful little 'flower' pot, Ma!

If I didn't believe "life begins each morning" - good grief, but my life would be dismal. That Arthur Ashe quote is amazing, isn't it! Maybe I can find someone to embroidery it on a sampler.
