Courage to try again.

June 24, 2014:
A Spark article I read yesterday suggested that starting over might be a good idea for someone who's been stuck for a while. I've been losing and gaining the same 10 pounds for eight months now, and I think that qualifies me as "stuck". I've resisted, believing perseverance, not starting over, is what I needed to do because STARTING is something I do really well, but finishing has been more elusive.
Then came the "messages." My new team leader posted a quote yesterday, "If you want what you do not have, you must do what you have not done" (thanks, ZanyGirl1!), and then BUTTERFLY made a comment this morning about new beginnings.
...sometimes we just HAVE to pay attention to the "coincidental" things around us, and this morning I decided. I've been here long enough to understand that sometimes we have to just bite the bullet and change something, no matter how uncomfortable it is (or maybe BECAUSE it's uncomfortable).
So here I am, starting over, Day #1. I'm tempted to sigh, but I refuse to see this as failure, and am instead going to cheer for myself for the courage to A) Try again and B) Tell all of you!
Now it's time to put what I've learned to work. Thank you, dear friends. You guys are the BEST!
