Each Morning We Are Born Again

Each morning we are born again.  What we do today is what matters most.
It is a new day.  If yesterday sucked or you totally screwed up, get over it, learn from it, and move on.  Today is a clean slate.  Start over and begin again.  The past is past and the future is unknown.  Don’t try to fix yesterday.  It’s done.  The concrete has set.  Build a new day today.  I talk a lot about mindfulness and being in the moment.  You can’t do yesterday over and you have no guarantee that you have a tomorrow.  Put your effort and focus into today.  It is all you have.  As you go through your day be grateful for what it gives you.  We all have moments of loneliness.  We all have times when we feel empty.  We are all a little broken.  No one is so blessed that they never have problems, challenges, or disappointments.  The struggles of life are part of being human.  As I was once told, “That which doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”.  I have survived every problem, challenge, disappointment,  and crisis in my life and I am still going strong after 64+ years.  Yes, I have a few scars but they are like medals of honor.  I’m old but I’m tough.  Today’s crisis will seem like no more than a bump in the road a year from now.  It’s all a matter of perspective.  Embrace today but don’t be overwhelmed by it.  If today ends up being another tough day, a good night’s sleep will cure many ills.  Many people also recommend glasses of wine.
