Starting Over – Begin Again
Sometimes we just need to start over.
I find that there are times in my life when I get a bunch of work done on a specific project and then it just isn’t right.
Maybe the color treatment isn’t right in the photo we are processing.
Or maybe the words just aren’t coming together in an article.
Or maybe we can’t find peace after trying to fix the mistakes we’ve made in the past.
Whatever it is, I believe there comes a point when we just need to stop, clean the slate off, say a prayer and then come back at it from a new perspective.
Don’t get me wrong. I am all for seeing things through to the end, but if things aren’t working it can be helpful to hit “re-boot.”
Why have I been thinking about “re-booting” all morning? Because I had a really long blog post almost finished. And then I went back and read it again… it just wasn’t right. So I’ll keep the theme in my pocket. I will revisit the same ideas. But when I do, I’ll be starting over.
This is also a good time of the year to think some about the year that is coming. The new year really is nothing special, it is a day, it has hours and minutes. But it does give an opportunity to each of us to draw a line in the sand, change some thing, or begin again.
Have you had to start over recently, what are you going to do different in the coming year?
