How blessed are we to have a daily physical predictable reminder that we can start fresh? Each sunrise brings new hope and promise of a day that can be different if we choose it to be. We have the opportunity to accept a beautiful clean slate to create the day every 24 hours.
If we are to focus on the events of yesterday and awaken with them in the front of our mind, then our thinking for today will be tainted by them. How can today be the best day of our life when we weren't happy with the events of yesterday? If we do this day in and day out then we will never have a "best day of our life"!
But what if every day is the best day of our life? We only have the moment we are in right here and now. What if this is as good as it gets? It is only as good as the thoughts we choose. The best day of our life is a perception that we have chosen!
We get the opportunity every second of the day to choose our thoughts. But if we do fall into the negative thought patterns which as humans it is near impossible to avoid, remember that we have an external reminder each and every day that the canvas is blank.
* Commit to watching the sunrise each morning for a week.
* Imagine with each new sunrise we clean the slate with the opportunity to choose a fresh new day with a fresh way of thinking.
* How do you want today to be different?
