In golf, it’s called a Mulligan. It’s a do-over, a chance to fix a mistake, an opportunity to do something better.
Thank goodness life often presents the chance to begin again. Where I am right now isn’t where I have to be a year from now. There are so many options.
If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know I’m a huge fan of Norah Jones. I’m thrilled that she has a brand new album out. Tonight’s serenade is the title track from Begin Again. There may or may not be a subtle political thought in this jazz-inspired song.
I don’t know in what situation you find yourself, but if you’ve ever wished for a chance to start over, I would just say that as long as you’re on this side of the dirt, it’s not too late. If life is what you make it, why not make it happy. A mistake is not the end of the line, it’s the beginning of you learning what you didn’t know before.
I hope you’re enjoying this weekend. Sunday is Mothers’ Day, so remember to tell your mom how much you love her.
Happy Saturday night!
