My husband passed away almost 4 years ago and after 38 years of marriage, I find that I have good days but also a few bad ones. I bought this simple item to put where I sit with my morning coffee - it's a daily reminder that while I may have a few bad days, it's okay and I can start over again to move forward.Thank you

I used this saying as my New Year's Day greeting on Facebook. I purchased these rocks to have as gifts to give to friends who may need to "begin again' following some kind of loss. The simplicity of the smooth rock that one can hold in their hands and the words on it are so inspiring.

This is just as described and serves as a reminder for me each day as I work to establish better eating habits.

I have bought more than one of these items. All have been great except the one I just bought which has an odd shape. I usually give my current one away so I feel stuck with the one I have.

Great reminder for me, as I am recently widowed. Also a gift for my cousin also recently widowed. So appropriate.

Got this for me and 3 other colleagues who were "let go" from our jobs within the last year. Each one of us is working their way through this, while supporting each other. This was just my way of giving them a simple but permanent reminder that things will be ok as a new path is found by each of us. And it was perfect.

A daily reminder that it is never too late to 'begin again' to start each day with hope and a open heart, even when your world has been 'rocked' with heartache.

Love this darling small stone. I look at it every day when I get up and it encourages me to get going, keep trying, and not give up. I have an auto immune disease and lots of days I don't feel like getting out of bed. I have chronic fatigue and terrible pain lots of days. That little stone encourages me to not give in to the pain and weariness. I gave it to a newly divorced friend and she LOVES it. It inspires her every day also What a neat idea! I would not trade mine for anything!

While this is smaller than I thought, it was just the most perfect gift. And says so much with so little. Excellent.

This is a great little item to 'gift' and to inspire at a great price. Maybe you could add different sayings as well.

The stone is exactly as the picture displays. I plan to use it to initiate discussion in a grief support group.

I purchased this daily reminder to start anew--it is more eloquent than many I have seen and also is a conversation starting accent piece.

Gorgeous sentiment. I gave mine to a friend who was having a tough time with having her appendix out and going through a divorce. She was very touched by the rock and has it on her desk. I chose it because I love the idea behind begin again.

I have to admit that I was disappointed in one of the stones I ordered as gifts. One of them was fine, but the other one was not. I know they are a "natural" product, but one of them had a huge white spot right on the front of the stone which was very distracting from the message. I almost sent it back, but decided it wasn't worth it. I was planning on giving it to a friend who is retiring soon. . .

I purchased this as a gift for a friend who has been experiencing some hardship. She says she loves it and has adopted the saying on the rock as her mantra and repeats it as she rubs the smooth rock when she thinks about her future.

Bought these for a friend who lost a husband and another friend who lost her job. Both most appropriate gifts for these gals. Both have herb gardens where this 'rock' will have a prominent place. Loved giving this as a gift.

I bought this special rock for my mom for her first birthday after the death of my dad. There were high-school sweethearts and had been married for more than 50 years. I thought the saying on the rock would be a gentle reminder that although Dad is gone, she is still here and has so much to offer. Mom set the rock on the windowsill above her kitchen sink where she said it has given her strength to "Begin Again" each new day. I could not have found a more perfect gift for Mom.

Over the years, I've bought at least a half dozen of these stones. They are perfect for retirement, a new sobriety, or any big change. I bought one for myself when I retired, and it's a perfect reminder to treat each day as new.

I am going through a difficult time right now, and this stone reminds me to "Begin Again" as I have done in the past when things haven't gone right. It reminds me that things always have a way of working out for the best, and that to begin again brings new directions and growth in my life.

My husband and I are in our 60's and starting up a business again. While some may think we are too old we think we are just right to be doing this. Having the stone in front of me is a gentle reassurance every day that what we are doing is right in line with the Universe.
