“Today is a new day. It is a day you have never seen before and a day you will never see again. Stop telling yourself the “same crap, different day” lie! How many days has that lie stolen from you? Seize the wonder and uniqueness of today! Recognize that throughout this beautiful day, you have an incredible amount of opportunities to move your life in the direction you want it to go.” ~Steve Maraboli …
I love the thought of waking up to a brand new day–free of yesterday’s failures and full of today’s unknown possibilities. And that is exactly what I have been blessed with–a new day. And I have the choice to make this day a productive day, or a special day that I will always remember, or a day in which I take steps in the direction I want my life to go. But I have to recognize the opportunity today truly is… and I have to seize the day!
As Steve wisely says, “Stop telling yourself that today is the same crap, different day.” Doing so only limits your possibilities and perpetuates the cycle of unhappiness. It is a sad waste of so much potential we can never get back. Think of the each day of your life like a ticket to travel anywhere in the world. But this ticket expires at midnight. Once it is gone… you have wasted the chance to experience somewhere unknown. You have lost all the potential value that the ticket held.
Today has wonder and magic to share with you. Will you take advantage of all it has to offer?
Use all of the day to the best of your abilities.
Questions to consider:
What potentially great things await you today?
What are some of the best things about fresh starts? Do you always take advantage of these things?
How can you better recognize the power and magic available to you in each new day?
