Today I woke up with a brand new optimism on life. It is full of never discovered never experienced opportunities. I can achieve a deeper connection with my wife and my children. I can correct a failure of yesterday and even achieve my greatest accomplishment to date. Today I can build the foundation to my best health. Today I can witness the most significant life changing event of my time.
Today I woke up with a brand new optimism on life. I have an opportunity to reflect on the greatness of my ancestors and to see myself in them. Today I get to share a lesson I learned with my loved ones. I get the blessing of seeing a smiling face or hearing a funny story. Today I get a chance to laugh and I mean to laugh like I have never laughed before. I get to see another sunshine and to hear another bird sing.
Today I woke up with a brand new optimism on life. I get the chance to lift a spirit. I get the opportunity to feed a hungry stomach or to shelter a person with no home. Today I get the chance to shine a light on injustice. I get a chance to make a stand for something important. I get the opportunity to be the change I want to see.
Today I woke up with a brand new optimism on life. So I am not concerned with what happened yesterday. It is buried with all the disappointment and with all its glory. Today’s opportunities are the best I have ever had. It’s even better than tomorrow because only today matters. Only what I do today can change how my tomorrow will be birthed. In closing in the words of OG Mandino, “I Will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.”
