The Rules for Starting Over

This post by Steve Keating is simple yet so powerful. Simple in the fact that it’s common sense, and powerful because most of us lack the common sense to do what Steve suggests.

How many of us have struggled with starting over, even when we see there are no other viable options? How many of us fall deeper down the ‘rabbit hole’ because we fear starting over while at the same time fear where our current path will take us?

It has inspired me to share with others. It has inspired me to look in every area of my life and see where I need to start over.
