When we are no longer able to change a situation – we are challenged to change ourselves. – Viktor Frankl
Ever wonder where the phrase ‘back to square one’ came from? This phrase had popped into my head while writing this blog so I went and researched it. Apparently it came from games kids play like hopscotch or snakes and ladders! Makes sense. Also makes sense that whenever we’re straddled with a tough situation at hand we must hop back into square one!
Square one is us. We must stare at the mirror and reaffirm that the main way we can approach life problems and challenges is by changing self. Life begins with us and ends back with us; we must get back to square one and ponder what needs to change!
Daily Affirmation: Today I AM at square one!
