The other day I overheard my two younger kids saying "press retry," "press retry." I went to look at what they were doing and found they were playing a video game...and apparently struggling to pass a particular level.
But, this made me wonder, wouldn't it be great if we could "press retry" for an hour out of our day...or even "press retry" for an entire day, and do something over...do something different...make different choices and decisions.
Then, it struck me. We can! Our "press retry" is every new morning we wake up! Each morning is a new opportunity to do better...be better...and make better decisions! You see, when my kids were "pressing retry," they were not going back through the level again and making the same decisions and choices. Rather, they were learning from their previous tries and making new choices, in an attempt to do better, and be better, then they were the time before.
We, too, can take this same perspective and apply it to our lives. All it takes is the commitment and courage to wake up each day and "press retry."
