I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy. Tony Robbins
Often, I would like to have my life be a do over. I would do so much different. I have realized that my life is a do over. I cannot go back and have a new start, but I can start now and have a new ending (the quote above is so apropos). I cannot change my past failures, some of them seriously flawed, but because I have learned from them, I need not repeat them, I need not live in the what if, I need not live a woe is me life. I can take those lessons as part of the solid foundation that leads me to an extraordinary ending. I am truly grateful I have the ability to start my day anytime and find peace and serenity in this moment, this place, these people and this life.
