How to start over.

Sometimes life seems so incredibly simple to me that I fancy myself back in kindergarten. (It’s elementary, dear Watson!)  Have you ever watched children get into an argument or fight over a toy, only to drop the issue three seconds later and move onto something different? Children are so forgiving, flexible and in the moment. Adults walk around with incredibly complicated lives, issues, thoughts and problems. I don’t think life is easy, but I do think it can be simple.

What am I getting at?

Say you have a problem. You talk about this problem with friends. You think about this problem as you’re doing dishes or driving to work. You complain about this problem to your buddies at the bar or your mechanic at the shop.


Take a step back.

Are you really looking for solutions and advice or are you wallowing in the issue?

Are you looking beyond the problem and into positive outcomes or are you stuck in a rut, spinning your tires in a ditch where you can’t seem to budge?

Take this zen flow chart and follow the appropriate path, you’ll see all arrows lead to the same outcome.

How do you start over?

Let go of useless guilt and worry.

Choose to be your own best friend.

Choose healthy people and habits in your life.

Keep moving!

Every moment we have is a moment we can start over.

“You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.” Isaiah 26:3
