You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. (C. S. Lewis, late British writer)
How often have we wished we could go back and start all over again? Because we can’t, we may decide to give up and move on to something else. If the project is worthwhile, however, start over again. Past disappointments don’t determine future failure. A restart with new plans and renewed determination may produce the desired result and a great sense of accomplishment.
But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. (Jeremiah 18:4)
