A re-write

I believe that, at some point in time, everyone wishes they could push a rewind button and initiate a “do-over” in their life. Perhaps an outing with friends went badly: feelings were hurt, negative things were said, and the friendship splintered. Later in the day, while mulling over the events of the outing, you say out loud, ” I just wish that I could do the whole day over and undo the damage!” In our mind, we re-stage the moment that went unexpectedly. We choreograph new steps, new turns in the road, and new words to be shared. We re-write the script of that “event.”

Unfortunately, there is no rewind button to what has passed. However, each new day brings another opportunity to start again. I believe that it is coded into the human DNA to keep approaching the problem until we solve, and overcome the negative obstacle or hindrance that is keeping us from achieving a level of success. That success may be the repairing of a friendship or another opportunity to “fix” what went wrong with a presentation at work. A re-write that begins with a new day. I’ll take it!
