A Second Chance


Often times we think we only get one chance at life if we make a bad decision there is no going back. Unless it is a major life altering
event, we always get a second chance. It may take a while because once a decision is made and the universe goes about fulfilling our wishes, we do have to live with the consequences.

However, the laws of karma always plays itself out and as soon as we begin to desire a different future, the universe again begins to arrange itself so we can have our hearts desire.  Your second chance will come, you just need to prepare for it and be ready to take advantage of it when the opportunity arises.

There is always a reason something doesn’t materialize, many times there are life lessons to be learned and once the lessons are absorbed into our consciousness, we find the second chance is justifiably the correct choice. The first opportunity was just a practice run to prepare us for the real thing. This is sometimes hard to understand when the first opportunity is missed, we can often unnecessarily regret passing up what we thought was our Golden Opportunity.

How do you recognize the second chances that come your way?  

You will begin to see a pattern developing, a pattern that relates positively to the first circumstance and begins to stimulate your
consciousness that something big is about to happen. 

You will begin to start thinking of the long ago opportunity and remember the good feelings you had. This is the time to let go of it and start thinking about how your experience from that time can help you realize your dream. In the process, forgive others as well as yourself, realize it was all meant as a learning experience and move on.

Develop a positive attitude, expect the best and look for the good in all situations, leave all negativity behind you, don’t think even one
negative thought , focus on what you would like the  final outcome to be. It is very important to expect a positive outcome and what you desire or something better, sometimes the universe has a better plan than we can imagine. You will have a choice as to accept the outcome or pass it up, don’t always take the first dog out of the chute, there will be other  chances, if you desire something better, wait.

Learn to live one day at a time, when the day is finished, be done with it, it’s over and you can’t change the past, this is part of the learning process as you progress toward enlightenment. Don’t spend needless hours worrying about what you did wrong or could have done differently, there are no mistakes or accidents, only learning experiences.  

As long as you maintain a positive attitude and focus on your goals it will all end with your highest good in mind.

Wisdom lost through the ages

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

Available in both paperback and ebook format.
