Starting over is one of the most difficult decisions you will ever make, but, sometimes, it can be very rewarding. These inspiring quotes to start over may motivate you to make the changes you need.
Holding onto the past can prevent you from moving forward. It’s important to forgive yourself and others, let go of grudges, and focus on the present and future.
Identify what you want to achieve and create realistic goals that are achievable within a reasonable timeframe. Break these goals down into smaller steps to make them more manageable. Surround yourself with supportive friends and family members who can provide encouragement and motivation.
Starting over is not always as easy as we would like. A little inspiration goes a long way and these inspiring quotes will help you with that.
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need.” – Lao Tzu
When you let go of the past and what is holding you back, you are able to move forward. The world will conspire to grant your heart’s desires. For that, it is important that you do not attach to grudges, hate or any other kind of negative emotion or thought that could hold you back from reaching your greatness.
“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” – Buddha
It can be hard to leave or forget things that have hurt you, and the happy future you want and deserve may seem a long way ahead. Just know that there is always a light, an opportunity, a new day, and that you can create new chances by changing your circumstances.
“Things don’t go wrong so you can be bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all you were intended to be.” – Charlie Jones
There are certain unfortunate situations that can affect you deeply, and these can change you—sometimes for the worse. Don’t let them. Do not allow anything or anyone take joy away from you.
Getting hurt could be an experience of rebirth. You have to take this opportunity to let your knowledge and wisdom guide you to become stronger and who you are meant to be. So, make this opportunity one that will bring the spark back into your life.
“As I begin to love myself: As I began to love myself, I freed myself of anything that is not good for my health, food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first, I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today, I know it is ‘Love of Oneself’.” – Charlie Chaplin
This is one of my favorite quotes. Do not be a slave of negative habits and negative people. Free yourself from the opinions of others, love yourself and do not give anybody permission to make you feel inferior.
We all are here to fulfill our purpose, so create your own reality and universe where your stars and planets empower you, love you and uplift you. You are a beautiful creation!
“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” – C.S. Lewis
Moving forward is challenging. A benefit to looking ahead is that you will find new things, new people and new adventures. New discoveries await you. Taking risks and chances can be scary, but growing roots in a negative environment is not healthy.
Become an explorer of your own path.
“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli
Do not be afraid of living your truth and being the real you; embrace your beauty and who you are. Don’t forget the potential and unlimited possblities you have; be determined to reach your goals, and look back only for wisdom.
Today is the day you are here, so enjoy it and share it.
“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” – Marcus Aurelius
What you think you are is true. Think positively: do not look outside when everything is within. You are the mastermind and tamer of your thoughts, so empower yourself and train it properly or it could become your worst enemy.
The way you are is a reflection of what is happening in your head; choose to be happy and grateful for the amazing new day ahead of you.
“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” – Omar Khayyam
There is really nothing that we truly possess; nothing belongs to us. This very moment, your words and actions are truly yours, and that is it—nothing more. Smile more and share your happiness with the world.
This moment is your opportunity to enjoy what you are and what you have, so put down the phone, look around you and assimilate all of the things that surround you.
“You can choose courage or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.” – Dr. Brené Brown
Have the strength and courage to move on from what it may seem comfortable, but that is hurting your soul. It is simpler to stay with what you are custom to, the routine and the easy guess; there’s a lot more out there waiting for you.
Get out of your comfort zone and live your life the way you were meant to.
“The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition.” – Zen Parable
Every obstacle you have faced in your life has been one that builds you up. While you are down, it may feel as if the light is a long way away; it is here where you can choose to stay down or climb up.
Know that every obstacle will open new doors, and although taking risks can be scary, these will serve you as your greatest teachers. There is always room for improvement; be strong and don’t be afraid to make your life better.
“Today you are you. That is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” – Dr. Seuss
