Daily Post Prompt: Restart

Today’s word is RESTART.
https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/restart/

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a reset button which we could push to restart our lives or send us on a different path.
If we could do this, would we though?  Now that is the question.
In doing so, would we lose our memories of the pre-life or have the new one an extension of it?
The past makes us what we are today is such a cliché, yet it holds truth, afterall, we learn by our mistakes and from experience, which helps to make us a better human being.
Or at least, that’s the theory.

I didn’t actually restart my life, but I did rebuild it.
I was able to take the good bits I liked about myself and build a new life based on those.
It took a while, a lot of soul-searching and a lot of honesty about the bad bits as I didn’t like myself very much, but I got there. I am now WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) and if you don’t like that, it’s OK, I understand.
I haven’t forgotten those times before, but my attitude and expectations have changed, and I couldn’t be happier.
What is even better is I have no regrets in respect of the decisions I made.
If you meet someone when you are at your rock bottom lowest and most cynical yet they still like you, that’s gotta be good.

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Isn’t it a life restart for those who believe in reincarnation?

  2. That’s a great prompt, and you did an excellent job with it. I’ve been thinking of doing a post along the same lines, and the extra motivation is welcome.

    PS – Love the reference to WYSIWYG. I’ll bet many of the younger readers won’t understand that reference.

    • Thank you! I’ve only just started doing these as I was running out of ideas, though I probably won’t do them every day. If you actually said wasiwig to the younger generations, they’d think it was part of the Jedi language or start looking for a phone ap!!
