Quote: Begin again


Starting again is not failure.

We can always begin again.

~Sharon Salzberg

Meditation guru Sharon Salzburg shared this quote in 2013. Although weight loss is not meditation, meditation can assist with weight loss. I will add that meditation, like life, is a challenge. We don’t need to be perfect on the first try, but when we slip, we need to begin again. We can and will fail. Failure is a part of human life, but we must learn from our mistakes and start a new. As long as we’re gentle with ourselves, we can always start over.

The bottom line: The start is half the battle so starting again is not a failure, but instead, it is a new beginning.
