“Every day is a new beginning. Treat it that way. Stay away from what might have been, and look at what can be.”- Marsha Petrie Sue
You have made lots of mistakes in the past. Who cares? Nobody. You have made mistakes, but mistakes didn’t make you. That is what life is all about. We fear to make mistakes. We fear to get out of certainty. We fear to take a leap of faith. Sometimes we even fear to trust ourselves. There is always hope. Today is your day of hope. Today is the day that you will start to move in the right direction.
You can always start again, again, and again. If you have been in a terrible relationship in the past, today is a new day to start again. If you have failed an exam in the past, today is the day to start preparing again to pass it. If you have doubted yourself in the past, today is a new day.
It is a new beginning. You have today to set the record straight. You have today to do the things that you were created to do- to love, to care about people, to grow, to make a difference, to be happy, to be yourself, to do your best, and to be yourself. Not to imitate anyone. Every day is a gift to live your life, to love again, to get to know yourself, to get to know your children, to know your neighbor, to study, to make a difference, to do something great.
You are here for a reason. You are here to make your days count. You are not here just to exist; you are here to live your life to the fullest. You are not here to live in fear; you are here to live in faith. You are not here to be unhappy; you are here to be happy. You are not here to be a copy; you are here to be an original you. Today gives you a change to forgive yourself of all your sins. Today gives you the chance to forgive those who have hurt you. Today gives you the opportunity to get closer to God.
Don’t waste your day. Don’t let people waste your day for you. Use your day creatively. Use your day to bless yourself. Use your day to find out what you can do to change your life. Use your day to be a blessing to other people. Use your day to be a blessing to your life. Use your day to be a blessing to the world. Use your day to love people. Use your day to dream, to set goals, and to reconnect with your real self. Use your day to focus on your strengths while you are improving your weaknesses.
When you wake up in the morning, say to yourself, “Today is a new beginning. I am going to use it to bless myself. I am going to use it to bless other people. I am going to use it to bless the world. I am going to use it to change my life. I am not going to use it to think negative things. I am not going to use it to blame other people. I am going to use it to take responsibility for my life. I will use my time wisely. I will use my day wisely. I will make my day count. “I will grow through the day.”’
