When you’ve worked so hard on your goals today.
And you fought to win a victory each day.
But one more time you went astray – start over!

If you’ve started out in pursuit of your goal
And you’ve really tried with your heart and your soul,
But somehow things got out of control – start over!

When you’ve tried your best to do what you should
And you thought this time that you surely would
But once again you didn’t do good – start over!

When you tried so hard to yourself to be true
And do the things that you know you should do
But once again you failed to come through – start over!

When the road to success seems much too long
And each temptation was oh so strong
And once again you gave into wrong – start over!

When you’ve told your friends what you planned to do
And trusted THEM to help you through
But soon discovered it’s all up to you – start over!

When you know you must be physically fit
But your hope seems gone and you’re stuck in a pit
That’s not the time for you to quit – start over!

When the week seems long and the successes few
And you are feeling very blue
Remember TOMMOROW is just for you! – start over!

To start again means a victory’s been won
And starting over again means a race well won
And starting over again proves it can be done
So don’t just sit there – start over!

    I love the items you share in your blogs! The messages they give really "hit home" with me. I hope you don't mind that I've been sharing them with one of my other teams - giving them the link to your blog.
