The afternoon always understands what the morning never even suspected.

Everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Every day.  All the time. YOU are telling yourself a story right now!

And this story is simply a collection of beliefs that ultimately makes you what you are – it lays the foundation for every action you take or don’t take in life.  In essence, you build yourself out of this story, one day at a time.

For a while, everything aligns just fine, or so it seems, and life is good.

But then, at some point, perhaps sometime in your thirties, forties or fifties, you get slapped with a harsh reality that doesn’t even slightly align with the story you’ve been telling yourself.  And it hurts!  As you struggle to cope with the pain you’re feeling, you are slapped again and again with similar realities.  It goes on like this until you realize that the story you’ve been telling yourself and holding on to all these years is the primary source of your pain, because the beliefs that support the story are utterly and hopelessly false.

It isn’t easy, but you have to accept it.  You have to seriously sit down with yourself and come to grips with the reality that you were wrong about it all along.  What you believed to be true was just an illusion built on false beliefs – a story – that never really was what you thought it was.

This is your awakening!

Although it hurts in the beginning, it’s a beautiful thing in the long run.

As time passes, awareness gradually becomes the new foundation of your journey.

You can start over again!

Do not even think about quitting now! It is easy to replay in your mind how things did not work, how much you lost, what you are going through, how angry you are. There is no amount of conversation or magic that is going to wipe the slate clean. You are wasting valuable time and energy that could be used to regain a new normal and start another version of your life. Even though you are hurt and you may be feeling down ~ stop kicking yourself! Face what has happened. Make the decision to start over again.

In life, friendships change…divorces happen…people move on and others die. Money and jobs will come and go. Live long enough and your health and body will change. It goes with the territory of being human. The fact that you are still here gives you an advantage. Do not look back. Look straight ahead!! Decide to use all of your knowledge, skills, experiences and your life lessons from your mistakes, defeats and setbacks, to start over again. Life changes. You may not have the same life as before, but you can still enjoy your life
