“Marilla, isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” -Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables)
Are you thinking and feeling like Anne in this wonderful quote…or have you already lost that zest for all of the things you wanted to change for 2017?!? Have you already fallen short on one or more of those incredibly well intentioned New Year’s resolutions??
Well it’s OK. It really is. Nobody is perfect you know. And those very first weeks, sometimes even those very first days often seem to be in that danger zone. That time when many of us don’t follow through and do perhaps fall down.
But here is my thought on this. Don’t give up! Because from my perspective, you have not really fallen down…you have perhaps just had a momentary stumble, a momentary hiccup you might say. Because, as I see it, every day starts fresh. Every day gives us a new opportunity to do it just exactly as we wish! 🙂
So, if you’ve stumbled a bit on Monday, or Wednesday, or Sunday that is OK, keep going! And if those wonderful resolutions have been left unmet or undone for a week or even a month, that is OK too, start fresh! Don’t let the calendar stifle your good intentions. They are just as good on January 17th, February 27th, or even July 7th as they are on January 1st.
Because…tomorrow’s dawn brings a new day to explore, a new day to try again, a new day to triumph!
