Begin again

One of the best things we can do in our lives is this:
Begin again.

Begin to see yourself as you were when you were the happiest
And strongest.

Begin to remember what worked for you
And what worked against you.

Try to capture the magic again.

Begin to remember how natural it was when you were a child
To live a lifetime each day.

Begin to release the baggage carried with you for years:
The problems that don't matter anymore,
The tears that cried themselves away,
And the worries that will wash away
On the shore of tomorrow's new beginning.

Tomorrow tells us it will be here
Every new day of our lives
And, if we will be wise,
We will turn away from the problems of the past
And give the future -- and ourselves -- a chance to become the
best of friends.

Sometimes all it takes is a wish in the heart to let yourself
Begin again.
