Successfully Single, Back to the Basics

Back to the Basics

Starting over is difficult, one of the hard things about it is knowing where to start. It may sound like a simple answer, but the best place to start is to return to the basic principles and values you have built your life on. It is a good thing to occasionally inventory what is going on in your life. What are the basic principles that you have embraced and practiced in your life? Are those basics worth repeating and carrying on into your next phase of life?

"Practice will only bring perfection if what you are practicing is perfect."

It can be easy to "drift away" from basic core values when engaging day to day scenarios in life. Stress, fatigue, daily responsibilities, and even fun; could serve as distractions from values that you once were totally focused on at a previous time in your life. It may require some changing of habits to regain your focus on values that will help you return to a strong and established place in your life.

The most important part of the strength and stability of a structure is its foundation. The basic principles and core values will determine the success of your life. They should be truth-based, and then defined clearly so as to be understood and practical. Success in any aspect of life cannot be sustained without a good foundation. Foundations transfer the weight of walls and columns of a structure to the soil or bedrock they are built on. Every well-built house and structure begins with a solid foundation.

We all are creatures of habit, and our past can mold and affect who we are right now. It is a good thing to take an honest look at your self. It may be good to ask for outside input on things you can change or improve on. In my opinion, the things you should look at are things like personal hygiene, spiritual issues, money, and current or past relationships with family, friends, and acquaintances.

"Continuing to do the same things the same way will continue to give you the same.... Yes sir/mam, you guessed it, results." It is a high probability that your future relationships will not succeed if you do not take time to correct the things that were wrong with the previous ones. If you are blaming someone else in order to free yourself from the responsibility of looking at your own issues, stop it now! We cannot be responsible for someone else's issues, but we are accountable for our own.
