Every day is a new day. The morning greets you with a new sunset and a new chance to become who it is you want to become. However, you usually carry yesterday's hopes and regrets around like old luggage. You travels are weighted down. You stumble. You miss the chance encounter with someone who might brighten your day because you are too entrapped in expectations long outdated. Your steps become more sluggish. You're tired.
Some questions that plague you may be....
- Why is it that I get stuck in these old patterns?
- Why doesn't life get better?
- Why haven't I changed after all these years?
- Why does my life suck?
If you have forgone introspection, you may be addicted to criticizing others instead.
- Why does he have it so good?
- What makes her so special?
- Why do those people end up so lucky?
- Why are they excluding me?
What has this to do with this blog?
Frankly, I'm tired of envying others for their success and happiness. What happened to my dreams? When did I stop believing in myself? When did I stop listening to my inner guidance? When did I stop knowing exactly who I was?
Do you ever feel like you woke up to someone else's life? Do you wonder how you got where you are today? Do you wish you were somewhere else? And how do you even begin to change when your ideal life seems so far away.
This is my journey towards a new day. Each day I have a choice. You have a choice, too. Do you want to continue in the same way you did yesterday. Or do you want to change?
I want to change and I want to do something different with my life. Who doesn't want a change?
How exactly do I do that? Do I have a road map? Do I know where I'm going? Not quite. But I believe we are born with guidance that will show us the way if we just listen. My guidance told me I needed to write more. So here I am.
I hope you'll join me on my new day. Each day I intend to listen, write, and do what comes next. Perhaps this post should be titled, Do What Comes Next. Maybe I'll save that for tomorrow.
Step one. Start blog. Check.
Step two. Write again tomorrow....
