Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. In today’s article I would like to encourage you with some thing that has and encourages me. This encouragement comes in the form of different quotes.
These quotes remind me that I can start over at any time. What may have previously worked for me, may no longer work. No worries. I can learn how to create in ways that work for me now. I can create and paint a different picture. A picture of hope. I can use many colors.
“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Zig Ziglar

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
This quote reminds me that I do not have to have everything to get started. I don’t have to be concerned with any destination. Instead, I can relish in my ability to do what I can for today. I can let go of the future. I can learn to develop what I am able to develop. I can grow where my feet are planted.
“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” Helen Keller

“If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life you have imagined… you will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” Henry David Thoreau
This quote reminds me that I need to keep moving in their direction of my dreams. I need to think outside of the”box”. I need to stay committed to doing the footwork. I need to let go of the outcomes. I need to let go of the timing. I need to believe that I am being led. I need to trust the process.
I need to believe that I am not my brain injury. I need to believe that I am not limited by my limitations. I need to believe that my life matters. I need to believe that I can create a good life for myself. I need to believe that I can create hope. I need to believe that I can achieve my dreams. I need to believe that I can advance confidently. I need to believe that my efforts will meet with a success. I need to believe that I can create with many colors.
