We are so lucky. We each get the chance to begin each day with a clean slate. We go to sleep, and wake up, and whatever happened the day before is gone, it's in the past. You feel new, different, and energetic. Even if these feelings only last for a few moments, savour them, and remember we have the opportunity to feel like that each and everyday if we choose.
While collecting the laundry the other day, this blog post came to mind, because doing laundry is so much like what sleep is to the body, mind and spirit, it lets you begin again over and over. You collect all your laundry, put it in the machine, and then it comes out clean, and smelling so good.
Every morning we wake up clean too. Every morning we have a chance to change something, we have a chance to right the wrongs from the day before. We have a new chance to do whatever we want. We have so much freedom. And even though everyday might be the same, with the same routines with kids, work, cooking, etc, our attitudes can change. From one day to the next, we can be dramatically different people. And the best part is we get to choose, and we are given endless opportunities to do that. So let's grab onto them and go for a ride.
No one is perfect, and it's okay to try over and over again. As many mornings and laundry loads as it takes, I believe we will all get to where we want to be, where we believe we are meant to be. You have to keep waking up and giving yourself the opportunities you deserve.
Believe in yourself, and the new chances we are all given every single day,
Wake up and begin again.
Peace & love always.
