The beauty of life is that always gives a second chance. At any given moment, life can surprise us with another chance, giving as the possibility to try something one more time, to recreate ourselves anew and to start again. The problem is that either we miss that chance by remaining attached to a past failure, to a story without a happy ending, or because we consciously deny accepting that chance, condemning ourselves to a life of failure. As always, life is made up of choices, and our success depends on seizing the chances that life gives us.
Our past could be full of failure, we could have made many mistakes, we could have made wrong choices, life could have taken away from us people we loved, and things we loved, relationships could have ended abruptly, we could have never succeed at having something or doing a special thing, the life we used to have could have vanished in the blink of an eye, we could have lost many things, but life is fairer than we think, because it always gives us a second chance, and sometimes even a third and a fourth, whether we deserve it or not.
No matter what happened in our past, and how many mistakes we have made, life will give us a second chance, but something we need to remember is that a second chance does not delete the consequences of our past. Any decision, behavior or action from our past will have a consequence, but a second chance means that we have the possibility to do things in another way. We can change ourselves for a better version; we can make different choices, learn from our mistakes, and do everything in a different way that will benefit us and everyone around us. That is exactly what a second chance is, the possibility to create a better tomorrow.
“If you are still breathing, you have a second chance.” – Oprah Winfrey
But what happens if I didn’t make anything wrong? What happens if life was simply unfair with me and has taken away from me something I loved? What happens when someone loses a loved one, or its job, or house or anything they really loved? What happens when somebody goes through a very painful situation? Will this second chance give us the possibility to get back what we used to have? Well that depends, sometimes a second chance doesn’t mean that we are going to have exactly what we used to have only because something better is waiting for us. I learned from my own experience that life never takes, without giving something in return. Sometimes things happen so we can have another chance to have a better life, and become the person we were supposed to become. That is why it’s important to believe in life, and wait for that second chance, to recreate our lives, because if we are living in the past, we will never have the opportunity to see this second opportunity, it will pass in front of our eyes, and we are going to be too blinded by our past to see it.
The key is to detach yourself from the past and everything that can’t be changed, and trust life and God that will give you a second chance, to a start a better life, to discover something about you that you didn’t know before, to see life in a different way, to become the best version of yourself, and to give you the life that you truly deserve. It is only a matter of giving life the chance to show us that wonderful things are waiting for us. If we’re breathing means that we are alive, and if we are live, opportunities are endless.
“Not everyone gets a second chance. If you do get one, take advantage of it because it’s a gift, and it may be something better than you had before!” – Nishan Panwar
Life will always give you a second chance, and when that happens, seize it, because this could be your very chance that will give you the life you are truly capable of living. Let go of the past, forget about the things you cannot change, focus on the things you can change, and learn from any mistake you have made, and when you have that second chance in front of your face don’t give it a second thought, simply take it and change your whole life!
Life wants us to succeed, the question is: do you want to succeed? Every day life will present us a second chance that will challenge us in every possible aspect of our life. That second chance could be the opportunity that will change your entire life, seize it!
