A very wise man (my husband) called me out recently on my wanting to "start new, start fresh, start over" all the time. It's become a thing with me. He suggested that I just fix it.
Fix whatever it is that isn't working for me instead of always starting over.
I guess in my mind I thought that starting over was fixing things. But I'm finding that lots of starting over really doesn't get you very far.
I found this picture in Carter's school notebook after the election.
I pray that our country has not gone back to sleep since the evening of
November 4. I hope this man knows just the right things to change, and
when to start over. He has such big shoes to fill- not necessarily the
shoes of the man before him, but the shoes of the man everyone has
envisioned him to be. So many people expecting so much.
I can relate to that a little. I have a whole lot of fixing to do.
At least it leaves me plenty of room for improvement...
