Yep, this is the day, the day that is "the first day of the rest of your life." This is the day you can make a change, any kind of change, good or bad. This is the day for all kinds of good things.
This day! It is the only day you can definitely count on having. Past days are gone and there is no guarantee you will have tomorrow. So, what do you want to do with it?
Have you ever thought of how many choices you do in a day? From the moment you wake up you are making choices about your behaviors. Will you expect good things? Will you get out of bed, or roll over and go back to sleep? What will you do first? What are you thinking? Are you thinking positively? What will you wear, eat, do in the first hour of your day.
Every behavior is a choice. Even your thoughts are a choice, or can be. So many things we do are habitual yet are still choices, choices you've made before and continued without thinking much about it.
Check it out: take and hour of the day and pay attention to what you are doing/thinking. Then do and think something different to see if you are really making thoughtful choices. What foot do you usually put a shoe on first? Try doing the opposite. Try changing the way you do habitual behaviors. Be aware, mindful.
Want to start something new? Make that choice and get started. Want to stop something you've been doing? Today, don't do it.
Use today to shape your tomorrows. Save the day!
