Starting Life Fresh: Living to Win

IMG_0240_David J. Rogers, Author Fighting to Win

Wouldn’t it be nice, wouldn’t it be grand and wonderful, wouldn’t it be lovely, if you and I had been granted… two lives, the first an experimental existence. We could make mistakes—all the mistakes we want, going this way, going that, exploring, trying and sometimes succeeding and sometimes failing. We would then correct our mistakes in our second life, our REAL life. Then you could become the person you were always meant to be, the real you, THE TRUE PERSON.

We have but one life, but this one life can be changed in an instant. It can become two lives. The life before the changes and the life after them. We are perfectly free to start fresh at will on a new course, a more fruitful course, a better course any moment we wish, putting aside disappointments, discouragements, false starts, and failures.

To make such changes what will we need?

To start fresh we must have new information, new insights, new skills, and new inspirations.

  1. David – I enjoyed this, and I write about diverse things in life too! Your observation here is so true, before and after life events.

      Vicki, I looked at your blog and I can understand better now where you’re coming from. Thanks for taking the time to reach me and let’s stay in touch.


  2. I agree with you. Having two lives would be awesome. I would not have wasted my twenties with so much unnecessary fear, doubt, self-consciousness and submissiveness. Luckily, the birth of my daughter lead to the shedding of those shells of restraint. I’m still a work in progress, but if I had the second life to correct all the mistakes, I would be so much further along right now. Regardless, I strive to make the most of it all.

      Sidra, we’re alike. I pretty much wasted a decade or two. But I have two lives too and have made up time. I should say you’re a work in progress–so productive now as though during those years of restraint you were building up energy for later use, maturing as a writer, good things on the horizon. I wish you the very best in your writing career and hope to see you make great bounding leaps in creative progress.
