Simply begin again

In my training in the gym, I've been coached to push to the point of failure and push past failure if I can. It's in the failure, if you've got proper form, where gains are made.

In my meditation practice, whenever my mind wanders, I've been told to simply begin again. It is the noting and returning that marks success in meditation. Take note, come back. That's a win.

Following Jesus, I've learned to let tomorrow worry about itself, to ask for only what I need to survive today, to take everyday one day at a time.

Rethinking failure, simply beginning again, and taking one day at a time—that's the spirit of this daily blog, which will be about simple living, my training, minimalism, and Jesus.

I've blogged since 2008 and I have nearly 6,000 readers here according to my SquareSpace analytics (thank you all), but I felt it was time to hit reset and return to the blog's original purpose.

Each day, I'm going to leave you with at least one tip for living well and living simply, I'll update you on my training progress, and I'll update you on life-stuff as I always have. Thank you for joining me on this ride.
