Begin again.  These words are so helpful as a mantra, or repetitive saying.  "Begin again" helps us to remember that every moment we can take a breath, relax our shoulders and jaw and tummy.  We can then remind ourselves that any thought or action we take in the present can come from our wisest intentions.  We do not have to repeat past mistakes.  Although the slate may not appear spotlessly clean, we have the choice in every new moment to think and act more wisely and more compassionately toward ourselves and others.
