Everyone deserves a second chance : Not just your work associates or those close to you in life – but you – yourself too.

Paving Your Own Path – Could Be Your Second Chance
When one door closes – whether noiselessly shutting or banging closed with a slam. Look for another door – embrace that other opportunity – give yourself another chance. If you have the courage to give yourself another chance – you can also give others around you a second chance.
Everyone Deserves A Second Chance

And my loved ones and those closest to me embraced me, supported me and encouraged me.

Taking The Road Less Traveled
Robert Frost one of the most famous American poets was 40 years old and had not yet published a single book of poetry. So in 1912 he decided he deserved a second chance at sharing his passion with others – he sold his farm in New England and actually moved to London. And sure enough 4 years later his classic poem The Road Not Taken was published. Not only did he make a new start – he stayed committed to that new start for four long years
This classic poem is not just about a walk in the woods. It is a thoughtful story about the choices we have available to us, the nature of of those choices we make and how we ultimately feel about the path we did or did not take.
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I–
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
So many people fail to give themselves a second chance and go to their grave wondering “what if…” having failed to follow their passion. You can choose to avoid regret and give yourself a second chance.
