Every Day

With every rising of the sun Think of your life as just begun. – Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Every day when we wake up, we are gifted with something simply amazing. A new day.  I know it sounds really trite, but I’m completely serious.  Every day is a new chance to start over, or to start something new.  There are all sorts of quotes that say today is the first day of the rest of your life.  You can roll your eyes at them all you want, but it’s true.  When the sun rises we can start all over again.

I know that we’re not supposed to go to bed angry, but sometimes, I do.  But in the morning, it’s gone.  It’s a blank slate.  This works really well for me in school with students.  There are kids that are incredibly gifted at pressing  buttons, and they know just what to say and do  to get a reaction from someone.  I am human, I get angry, but the next day it’s like that interaction never happened.  We will address the behavior, but for me, it’s a fresh start.

What’s really cool, in my mind, is you can modify that to every hour is a new chance to start something new.  Messed up your diet?  Don’t wait until the next day to start again, start again right then and there.  Mess up something at work?  It’s okay….fix it and start again.  Don’t get hung up on what was and what happened, because you have this great opportunity to just start again each and every day.
