You know, no matter what yesterday brought today is a blank page.
A fresh start.
Let's embrace it as a chance to begin again.
You and I. Let's release what is holding us down.
Let's drop the fear, the worry, the anger and frustration.
Let's meditate and pray.
Apologize and give thanks.
Let's count our blessings and be with what is.
Instead of what we worried might have been.
Because it wasn't. It isn't.
And however rough it looks today, it's rarely half as bad as we imagined.
Even the hard days bring blessings unbounded.
Repeat after me:
All is well.
And nothing is perfect.
And my life is blessed exactly as it is.
Even if your weekend was hard. (Like mine.)
Even if you lost your temper. (I did.)
Even though your life is messy; imperfect; flawed. (Mine, too.)
Because sometimes a new day is just a chance to call a do-over and put yesterday behind us.
Do you need it? (I know I do.)
With lessons learned, we start again.
