Starting Again:

There has certainly been a moment in our lives where we have had this feeling or inclination to start again. I find the idea of starting again honestly scary and I’m definitely not the only one. Just think about it! What if you’re coming back from a long-lasting injury, you may doubt yourself and feel as though you won’t be as good as you once were when you step onto that field again. Or maybe you’ve stopped working out and lost a lot of progress in your physique and feel as though you’ve lost too much time and that it’s too late to start again. These types of thoughts are the biggest reasons in my opinion that some people never find the courage to start again.

Why Start Again?

If you are struggling to take the leap and start anew you must ask yourself, “Why am I feeling this way”?

If it is because you are doubting yourself and feeling as though you aren’t capable anymore you must realize that you are NOT starting from scratch. Whether you spent five years, five weeks, or five days at whatever it is that you quit, you still have knowledge and skills from your past experience that serve as a foundation on which you can massively build.

If it is because you are afraid to fail, that’s ok. I’d say everyone has gone through that feeling before. But it is imperative that you do not allow that fear to paralyze you and prevent you from doing whatever it is you know you should be doing.

If it is because you feel it’s too late to go back. This is just a reminder that it truly is NEVER too late, especially as a teenager or young adult. I’ve quit things and never started them again because I thought it was too late. How stupid is that! If you want to do it. DO IT. As cliché as it sounds, the only person stopping you is you! Why deprive yourself of something that you believe would make you happier or help you become a better person just because you feel it’s


The fear of starting again may be daunting, but it should not prevent us from embracing new beginnings. Whether it’s self-doubt, fear of failure, or the notion that it’s too late, we must remember that we are not starting from scratch, and our past experiences provide a solid foundation for growth. It’s never too late to pursue our passions and find fulfilment. So let go of fear, trust in your abilities, and have the courage to start again. The possibilities that lie ahead are truly limitless.
