If you step back and think about it, it’s striking that we give ourselves the gift of celebrating newness so infrequently. Once a year doesn’t seem nearly enough to me – does it to you?
I really love the idea that we can choose when and how to create and welcome new beginnings for ourselves. And personally, I find it very energizing to frame each day as a new beginning. As Eleanor Roosevelt said:
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
Of course, being able to greet the newness of THIS day means letting go of what has passed. Whatever you did or did not accomplish yesterday really and truly has no meaning today, unless you invite it to. Bringing along that baggage from yesterday, whether you perceive it as positive or negative, really just means that you are carrying something extra (and unnecessary) as you set out on today’s journey.
You see – this is so key – how you perceive your time truly transforms it.
When I awaken to a new morning and see it as an adventure, I immediately feel more energy – and lots of excitement and interest about what is to come. (And because I am seeing things this way, each moment can feel like an adventure as it unfolds.)
Of course, this isn’t a one-time decision, but a choice made repeatedly throughout the day.
So what do you think? Do you choose to find time for the amazing adventure of this new day? It’s a choice that changes everything!
Do not wait until the conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes the conditions perfect. Alan Cohen
