It really takes courage to admit to yourself that you got it wrong, especially when you have emotionally invested in something. Each day you wake up and put your best foot forward further and further down a path that you don’t recognise or even particularly like, just simply because you made a choice somewhere back so far yonder that you don’t even remember when it happened, why it happened, or even if you dreamed it and it never actually happened at all… but you made a vow either consciously or subconsciously that you, until this point have felt obliged to adhere to until the bitter conclusion… did I just say bitter?

Seriously, who wants to end up bitter?

Seeing as though it’s the first Monday of the month and therefore challenge day, I’m challenging myself, and feel free to join in, in having a do-over day.

I’m not looking to repeat yesterday you understand, I’m more interested in unravelling a stuck pattern, a karmic loop as it were, that is very apparent in my life. I have on many occasions attempted to untie this knotty problem but the further down the path you travel the more complex the twists and turns of the story and the more invested you get every time you attempt to heal the faltering storyline. That being the case, when the knotty problem becomes so immense its painful and any move you make will merely increase the muddle, the only viable strategy is to throw the whole thing away and start the journey over…

“All that time, all that effort, all that money, all those tears… ”

Do you really want to add more of the same for more of the same?

A do-over day has to start with an honest appraisal of where you are, where you wish to get back to, what choices led you to this point and most of all the admission of full responsibility… taking responsibility is the most empowering mechanism for creating real change and its also a crucial step in embracing Principle 3: I AM Human.

Put your pride to one side, it’s nobody else’s business anyway, admit you made a mistake and get started on recreating your vision… this time the way you always imagined it could be.

Happy Monday… x
