Fresh Starts -- Second Chances

No Wasted Steps

Life lesson in a bracelet:

Hubby gave me a Fitbit for our anniversary and this fashionable little accessory is literally changing the way I look at life.

You know those times when you walk into a room and then have no idea what you were looking for? From the moment I put this on, I quit chastening myself for those senior moments. Because now every wrong step "counts" in exactly the same way the intended ones do! 

Life lesson? Think of the missteps you've made in life. Poor choice, unwise relationship, wanting to do things your way instead of God's. We've all suffered the consequences of dumb decisions and selfish motives. But how many of those missteps led you to a blessing--a lesson learned, wisdom gained, a testimony of God's mercy and forgiveness, a story to tell someone about to make a wrong step. 

I've lived long enough to have a significant list of ways God has used my mistakes. Though I may wish I could have learned a lesson or gained experience in a less painful way, one thing is certain--those missteps are never wasted.

I love this, Becky. I tell myself this every day and try to let God's truth wash over me. And I've used my missteps to keep others from making the same ... I praise God for that. xoxo

When someone hurt or betray us and we are about to forgive them, many of us are always asking ourselves if this person really deserves a second chance. I think, all of us deserves second chances. When you forgive someone because of their wring doings to you, you feel happier and the weight on your back is gone. People can really change for the better. Everyone of us can learn from our mistakes. When you are thinking if you will give someone another chance, remember that if you are in his place, you also want to be forgiven and be happy together again. on Monday, June 04, 2018 9:21 AM
I am familiar with this kind of bracelet, because it is something that an athlete usually wears. My mom has this kind of bracelet where she can monitor her steps, heart beat, blood pressure, and other things. This is very useful because it is not just an ordinary bracelet that you will have. I always wanted to try this kind of bracelet, though I am not used to be health conscious but it makes me curious every now and then. It's a good thing that people are sharing their experiencing having this kind of bracelet.

We have to be wise every decision and step that we've made because no mistakes can be restored. No one can help us but just ourselves, one of the best thing to do is motivate yourself as you're the strongest person in the universe. Don't let other people bring you down because life is about freedom. Well, about the second chance I admire you for giving your husband another chance, you're a brave person and you're a good example for those who have a husband that who had made mistake as well.

Every step is important because it is one way of letting us know that we are moving forward. Your husband gave you such a wonderful gift. A fitbit keeps track of every step you take, it is also tracking how many calories you have burned, and it also keeps tabs with your heart beat. This is great because it helped you in such a way that you never wasted a step again. Also, thank you for giving us life lessons that we could use. This is the kind of motivation we need. This has been really helpful for me.

When figuring beta, what is sd, though not required, to use an index representative of the market in which the stock trades. stocks, the S 500 is the index usually used, although analysis of an industrial stock may be better served by comparing it against the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
