      I can relate to this Brenda. Have been in such a situation, so many times. But, each time you come out stronger, and more confident. So true about life, and in fact a part of it.
      Thank you to both of you Brenda and Pamela.

        Thank you.

        It seems like many of us have experienced starting over.

        I guess it is part of life.

      Life can be tricky at times, allowing you to start all over again when you have no other choice but that. Loved your poem and enjoyed reading it. Thank you for sharing your wonderful contribution with a great message, Brenda.

      Thank you, Pamela, for posting Brenda's post.

        Thanks for reading my work.
        Life usually doesn't give us much choice...sometimes there are two roads.. but which one should you take.
        It's fun...it's a dilemma...it can bd irritating.

    Beautiful poem...
     
    It's difficult to get up again after getting knocked down. But it's also a way of learning lessons. A new beginning gives us the confidence to face realities as they are.
     
    Stay safe and healthy...

      Thanks EK...
      we always get back up.
      Sometimes it does not knock you down. ...
      It just pushes you back.
      Like 3 steps forward...2 steps back.

      Take care.

    This is an excellent poem that everyone can relate to. I have been knocked
    down so many times, get back up, and start all over again too many times to count. Good job Brenda, and thanks for sharing Pamela.

    Few people go through life without setbacks of one type or another.  I think most of us can relate to Brenda's poem. Thanks for sharing it, Pamela.

      Ain't that the truth.

      We all suffer moments when we must start back from the beginning.

      I wish we could just keep going with smooth sailing...
      But I guess we have lessons to learn or ekse we've strayed from our true calling.

    Excellent poem, Bredz. Life is an unpredictable journey. You never know what will happen next, but isn't that what makes life fascinating and adventurous? smile

      It indeed can make one's life adventurous & exciting, but it can also give one a bad headache.

      Just depends.

      But we don't know from one minute to the next what will happen.

      Take care.
      Hugs

    It is always good to get a fresh start. Learning lessons after a knock down helps one develop a stronger resolve to succeed. Fresh start is a mindset, I agree. Very relatable. Thanks Pamela for sharing.

      Thank you.
      A fresh start can often be a rewarding path to take...but sometimes it does not feel like it in the beginning.

      It's like...how many times must we start over before we get it right?

      So glad you liked this one.
