It’s never too late – nor too early – to begin again.
Progress, by its very definition, is not a linear process. We move forward, we fall down, we get back up again. Each time we slip up, it means we’ve tried something new. We need to congratulate ourselves for that.
Therefore, the more progress we make, the more times we will fall down. What matters is how long it takes us to get back up again.
Today, I will re-commit myself to something I want that I had previously stopped pursuing. I will take one small step. I will congratulate myself for my persistence. I am proud of the fact that I keep going.
