Starting back from the beginning is one of the hardest parts of life.

We question whether the investment was worth it.

But are we really starting over? Is this the same starting point?

We fail by not acknowledging all of the work we put in.
The mental and physical energy.
The struggle and sacrifice.
The commitment.
The learning.

Whether we succeed or fail is only how we define those terms.

What is a success, really, but an opportunity to pursue a fulfilling life?

Then why is trying a failure?

We have to see what’s there.
We have to see what can be accomplished.
We have to see what’s even worth it.

We’ve tried countless times in life and have failed spectacularly.

It doesn’t mean it hurts any less but it was necessary for our growth.

We should pick ourselves back up. Dust off. And get back to the next attempt.

Because we should consider ourselves lucky to even have one.
