Welcome back to Second Chance to Live. I am glad you decided to stop by to visit with me. I want to share a reality with you. You do not have to be anyone but you. I do not have to be anyone but me. When I compare my insides with / to other peoples outside, I am missing the point. You may ask yourself, “ The point, what point”? The point is that I am not anyone, can not be compared to anyone, and I do not need to be defined by anyone other than me. You do not have to be anyone, but you. You and I were not created to be clones of anyone. Your unique creative capacity has a profound ability to positively impact the lives of those in your world. You and I can either be a part of the solution or part of the problem. We are part of the solution when we decide to not give up on the process, on God or on ourselves.
No one can go back and make a brand new start, my friend, but anyone can start from here and make a brand new end. Dan Zadra
You and I may not understand the journey at times. We do not have to figure everything out. We can trust the process, trust God and believe that we will get what we need. Your and my circumstances are not meant for our harm. Reality has shown that they are meant for our good. They are meant to usher us into greater awareness and acceptance, so that we can be empowered in ways that once seemed to be out of our grasp. You and I were created to fulfill a magnificent plan and purpose. Our destinies are being worked out through us as we surrender to the process. As we make the decision to learn from our experiences we respond to the grace of God. Shame and doubt are cast aside and hope is embraced as we dare to believe that more will be revealed.
The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started. Norman Cousins
