Today is a new day. What are you going to do with it?
Are you going to spend the time complaining because you dripped the milk from your cereal onto your shirt? Or maybe get mad because the dog tracked mud in on his paws when coming in from his morning adventures outside? Are you going to allow someone else’s grumpy attitude get you down, refuse to smile because the weather isn’t cooperating, or spend your time wishing life was different than the reality of what it is?
Or are you going to seize the day!
This is your day. Sure you have to wade through the bad weather, crazy drivers, grumpy family members, messy kids, loud neighbors, annoying coworkers and insensitive strangers. There’s also the mistakes, accidents, and setbacks that you see on a regular basis. Sometimes they come as surprises. Others times you can prepare for them in advance. Add to that the challenges of Multiple Sclerosis and it’s a recipe for disaster.
All of those things are real and they have the ability to bring you down making for a really awful, terrible, horrible day. But there’s something else about today that you are forgetting.
It’s a new start. A fresh beginning. Today is filled with opportunities for success and the potential of seeing the impossible becoming possible. Today, you get a chance to live in the moment, enjoy the people in your life, and create precious memories. You get to take this wonderment of time and turn it into something amazing and beautiful. You get to catch a falling star and put it in your pocket.
Nothing can stop you…not circumstances, not other people and not even yourself. It’s your choice. You choose whether you will see everything wrong with today…or find everything that is right!
Today belongs to you. It’s is a new day. What are you going to do with it?
