No matter how yesterday went, today is a new day. It offers twenty-four hours to make amends, push forward towards desired goals, enjoy the moment as it is, or a combination of these options, and more besides.
A new day provides the opportunity for us to indulge in the making of decisions concerning how we live it. Asking ourselves the question “How would we really like to embrace this new day?” could produce a host of ideas. Listening to our heart might offer even more input.
Our actual usage of the new day will be individual as we all are. Just as no two people are alike, a new day lived according to your personal wants, needs or design will differ from that experienced by another person. Intentions put into action add to the outcome of how the day is lived.
Yet when folk say they have no time for personal and/or professional development over the course of a new day, what do they mean? Are they suggesting they are too busy with the routine of life to squeeze an activity – one with the potential to enhance their existence – into the day?
Maybe they are engaged with an overarching endeavour right now. If so, then yes, stepping back from taking on additional commitments is probably wise.
However, in many instances they are possibly indicating they prefer to give priority to other things as part of a new day. Such a decision is theirs, rightly so, to make. We all get to choose whether, and in many instances how, to live or not our potential day after day.
For now, let me just thank you for reading this post at the start, middle or end of a new day.
