Starting Over

"Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist but the ability to start over."

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

We all have to start over once in a while. No matter the station in life that we are born to or the lot that we work to achieve, at some point we will fail. Failure is an inherent part of humanity.

The question each of us must answer is what we will do when faced with that failure. Will we stop? Will we find some other course of action? Will we persist in doing what we believe to righ and good?

The loss of a job, the end of a marriage, the loss of a loved one are all events that can put us in a place we do not want to be in our lives. Each day the sun will rise, and what will we do beneath that sun? Will we find the strength to start over yet again?
