I woke up early this morning to start my day. To be honest, it was a struggle. I was tired, and I didn’t feel like exercising or even getting out of bed.
Even though it is difficult for me, there is something refreshing about getting up early. I’m not sure why. Maybe the day just seems to be full of possibilities.
There is also something healing about starting a new day. I don’t know about you, but in my life I have a tendency to get bogged down with feelings of disappointment and regret. Maybe I made a mistake, and I’m frustrated with myself. Perhaps I hurt someone I cared about, and I continue to carry around guilt because of what I did. Maybe I’m not exactly where I want to be in my life, and I ruminate about the poor choices I made along the way.
A new day is a chance to begin again. When the sun sets in the night, and rises again in the morning, it’s a reminder to me that there’s forgiveness and grace for the mistakes I made. If I’m frustrated with some of the life choices I have made, a new day is an opportunity to make different choices and experience different outcomes.
A new day is an invitation to leave the past behind and step forward into something great.
Let’s do it!
