Yay, it's Today!

Celebrate the Fresh Morning

A Morning Affirmation and Quote

I awoke this morning feeling slightly better than last evening but the pain and unhappiness is still lingering. Personally the only way I can move past the feelings of yesterday is to pay full attention to the present and the newness of today. I am choosing to use both an affirmation and quote this morning because I need a little extra umph! The first is a morning affirmation-

Carve your day into a masterpiece-
I create my life with my thoughts and my actions. I decide what is important and necessary. I fill my day with positive and healing thoughts. I am worthy, confident, and capable.

We are the authors and artists of our own lives and days. We have the power to carve them in the way that we decide. Even if unexpected things are thrown are way we alone can choose what to do with or how to handle them. All choices- bagel or toast? feeling fat or thin? dress or shorts? kind or mean?- are made by us and dictate the course of our day. Some have larger impacts or are more significant than others but ultimately it's up to us. Today I will try to celebrate my right to choose and work to make choice the affect my mood, day, and life in a positive way. The following is quote in celebration of fresh mornings, our power to create and choose, and new starts-

Food sunrise, haha (Sorry I couldn't help myself!)
"Each day the world is born anew for him who takes it rightly."

- James Russell Lowell

I felt that this quote fit perfectly with the theme of this entry. Yes every new day offers opportunities, freshness, and potential but only if we choose to take advantage of it. With the rise of the morning sun comes the rise of endless possibilities and options. What will you choose to do with your day? Use this new day to your benefit and celebrate it! This will sound cliche but this morning is the beginning of the rest of your life. You can choose to start anew or continue in your old ways- it's completely up to you. If you're happy in your old ways than keep it up but if your wanting change, if you want a fresh start, the moment is here for you to take. Hold on tight and run with it! But don't be too disconcerted if today is not your day to make the all the changes and choices that you would like to because remember there is always a new tomorrow.

Celebrate today and your ability to design it the way you choose,

Which one will you choose today?
