One of the most beautiful things about waking up in the morning is that the past is behind you and you have a clean slate to begin another day. Even more beautiful is the fact that the day can be anything you want it to be. You have total control over what your day is going to be like even if faced with adversity. Others can’t make us feel a certain way, as we have total control over the power of what we feel.
Have you ever encountered those people who just seem naturally happy? They are always cheerful, they never seem down and they seem to have this glow about them that we only wish we had? Ok, sometimes you just want to slap them because they are just too darn happy. But really we just wish they would bottle up what they have and sell it so we can buy a bottle for ourselves.
Every minute of every day is the beginning of anything that we want it to be. How we spend it and what is sets us up for in the minutes to come are totally within our control. We can take bad experiences and make them positive or choose to let those experiences mire us down and take us to a place where we would rather not go. Other individuals can not force us down one path or another, only we can decide the path for ourselves.
The beauty of a new day is that it comes with so much potential. Both the expected and unexpected provide us opportunities to lay our heads on the pillow at night and be content with what we have accomplished. Unfortunately, wasted minutes we can not get back, which is why it is incredibly important to make the most of what what every minute has to offer. That doesn’t mean that we have to stress ourselves to try and accomplish more than we are able, but it does mean that we have to be smart about making the most out of every minute that we can.
As you get older, you hear everyone say how fast time is going by. You take down the holiday decorations and before you know it you are putting them up again. Days run into weeks and weeks run into months and years. In reality, time isn’t getting any faster, but how we live our lives is certainly giving us that perception. That is why it is important to make sure that we live every minute with the belief that the next minute can be the beginning of anything that we want it to be. May your next minute be magical.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles.
