You can start anew -- right now!

Some people are not going to like you no matter what you do or what you say.
Get over it and get on with life.

Some of your efforts are not going to bring the results you were after.
Accept it and find another approach.

Occasionally you'll be distracted and knocked off course for a while.
On a regular basis, life will have its disappointments.
Those disappointments and distractions do not have to stop you.
In fact, you can choose to let them inspire you and to push you forward.

No matter what has just happened, you are free in this moment to act with positive purpose.
Whether the past has worked in your favor or not, the future is yours to create as you wish.
Life is too important to waste it feeling sorry for yourself or beating yourself up. [!!!]
Get up and get on with life, and make it match your highest expectations.

~Ralph Marston

I love this quote... especially as a mom who daily makes mistakes and has to frequently reassess my direction and change course -- right in the middle of the day!! Oh Lord, thank you that You give me so many second chances... thank you that my day isn't a total loss when I make wrong choices -- but through Your grace and Your strength, I can choose to make the next right choice!
