Everything is the first time.
Just think about that for a while…
OK… now that you have had some time to think about this I would like to add a few thoughts to further your thinking. lol
Even if you have done something 100 times, it has never really been the same experience every time.
Every moment that you exist you are changing. You are not the same as you were before you read that last sentence. You have ingested new knowledge, new air, new thoughts. Basically we are in a constant state of change and with each and every moment we are experiencing everything for the first time.
Think about it. When your child forgets to do a chore for what seems like the hundredth time, the same chore you have reminded them to do a hundred times before. It really isn’t the same as the time before. New experiences have come and gone for your child, for you, for the entire universe. Rather than get angry, exasperated, sad or whatever. Just remember, it’s the first time this has happened just exactly like it has happened.
Everyone and everything deserves a second chance, right? Well, they will never get it because everything is the first time. So, maybe you should cut yourself and everyone else some slack when things don’t work out like you want them to.
Perhaps you should also be more present in the moment and realize what is new for you right now, in this moment. Now, this moment. Really, I meant this moment. Well, you get the idea (hopefully).
Live your life and realize, everything is the first time.
