Light starts peeking through the windows. You’re barely awake but start to turn. And in that moment you finally comprehend the fact it’s time to get up – is when it hits. It’s a brand new day.
Those moments before you’re completely alive to the world. You’re a bit groggy and haven’t yet had your coffee. Those are the moments where the best thoughts happen. The night before could have been a nightmare. Or it could have been one for the record books. And either way – the dawn of a new day brings a fresh start. A clean slate for anything you want it to be.
I try to follow my own advice, although I’m not always good at it. I say – why waste time worrying about the past – because you’re not going that way. The past is a tricky thing for some. They just can’t shake it. Living their lives with a black cloud that haunts their daily existence. Even if it’s just in the shadows. And there are those that just ignore it. Perhaps hoping if they don’t believe it ever happened – it never really did. And then lastly there are those that learn from it. They take that new day – that new sun rise – to really wake up.
That new day – every new day – is a chance at a fresh start. A new beginning. A mended relationship. A chance to heal. A moment to live. And feel grateful for a chance at something quite unpredicable.
Because you never really know what each day will bring. And wouldn’t it be lovely, if it turned into something wonderful?
Happy New Year everyone! I hope it’s the start of a wonderful year.
