A new day means a new beginning. It is an opportunity to recreate yourself and revamp your life. Where there is life, there is always hope for improvement, the ability to chase your dreams and a chance to share your special light with the world.
Today’s prompt inspired me to think about the things I should be focusing on every day to keep myself in check and live my best life. I hope they are helpful to you as well. It is my goal to inspire or to bring a little joy to anyone who reads my posts. Thanks for reading 🙂
R – Rise and Give Thanks. A lot of us did not make it through the night and have passed to the other side as I call it. Lately, I have found myself having a few moments of discontent. There are a lot of things I perceive to be wrong at the moment. This morning as I was watching the news I heard this lady speaking about those who have been affected by Irma who essentially have nothing and are still in good spirits and optimistic. Reality check for me! I still have a home food, electricity. You know the everyday things we take for granted and think that we are entitled to. Note to self: Stop acting like a spoiled only child.
E -Evolve – Make sure you do something every day that contributes to your growth. Anything that improves your physical well-being, your mental health, and your spiritual practice. Focus on the things you love about yourself .
C- Conformity- Create a life that is yours by design. Be as authentic as possible. Do not live to impress anyone. Be younique and share your message, skill, gifts with the world. You never know who will benefit from what you have to offer.
R- Repeat – Do not repeat past mistakes.You will get nowhere in life going through the same tired cycle.If it does not benefit you; no need to keep hanging on. Be consistent. Repeat what works for you. Focus on your goals and attack them with the ferocity of a lion. Don’t back down from any challenge that life throws at you. Forget the past. Your life is now. No use fighting what is because you are focusing on what was or what will be. Here is all you have. Work with it, make the best of it.
E- Empathy – As they say it takes nothing to be kind and I am not talking about saying you are sorry and doing nothing. Or throwing pity parties for people. Lend a hand where you can. Simple acts such as offering someone a meal can seriously brighten someone’s day.
A- Ambition – You must have an unwavering drive to maneuver through life like a pro. You can not sit on your butt and wait for opportunities to manifest like a genie from a bottle. Determination, Perseverance, A can do attitude I sound like I am writing a cover letter here. You get the picture. As the song says get up and do something, You will never make it if you never even try.
T-Time – Time is like cake. You can not really have it and eat it too unless of course, you have multiple cakes. One life is all we have one shot. I sometimes wish I had nine lives like a cat. They are some brilliant resourceful animals. Be like the cat pounce on an all opportunities, rest when you have to and most importantly use your time wisely. If only we could get a refund for all the time we have spent on people and situations that were not beneficial to us .
E- Ego- Now I will not knock the importance of having a high self-esteem. However, there is a fine line between self-esteem and being a self-important tight ass . In all things and all situations keep your ego in check . Be humble and be grateful . It could all be taken away from you in an instant . Remember you are not what you own or what you do . Essentially none of that matters if you are an awful human being .
