They say nature is the best teacher. Each morning we wake up to the rising sun and at dusk the sun sets. This happens every day, without fail. No matter what we’ve accomplished today, no matter how low we feel, the next day is a new beginning, a fresh start.
If our efforts at doing something different, something remarkable have failed today, or we have not been able to achieve what we set out to do, then we do have some time to rest today before we start afresh the next day. It could be something small that we’ve been trying like making your bed in the morning or just a thank you prayer at night.
When I Awake
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer
Each day I awake I can lie in bed
Or I can get up and get ahead
A new day to achieve my dreams and goals
Or a day to relax and just take a stroll.
My attitude determines what each new day will bring
I can be thankful for all the little things
Or I can be full of dread and fear
And miss opportunities that are so dear.
Life is too short to waste our days
Get out of bed, be happy and say
A new day has been given to me
I bring to it the best I can be.
For all you Celine Dion fans like me, I am sure you will have recalled by now her song “A new day has come”. Although the context of the song is completely different, I am sure you’ll enjoy listening to it here 🙂
