FFF Diva Advice: On Second Chances

From my favorite website: tinybuddha.com

“If you have made mistakes, there is always another chance for you. You may have a fresh start any moment you choose for this thing we call ‘failure’ is not the falling down but the staying down.” -Mary Pickford

We’re never out of the game until we decide we are. Even if circumstances don’t appear to work in our favor, even if we have an uphill climb, even if we’ve fallen, we can get up and keep going until we choose to stop.

Happiness is in the going itself–the choice to keep doing what we love, even when disappointments and hurt pride make it challenging to give up.

Until the day we stop breathing we have limitless chances in life.

If one approach isn’t working, we can try something new. If we don’t have enough support, we can reach out and ask for help. And if something doesn’t feel right, we can wipe the slate clean and start all over in a completely new way.

We set the rules. We get to choose who to be and what to do from day to day–but we have to believe that we deserve and can create happiness.

How can you create happiness today by empowering yourself to keep going?
