Finish Your Day...
"Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your nonsense." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Every one of us has good and bad days. Things happen, sometimes in our control and sometimes unexpected. Many of us also have a tendency of letting those things linger for much longer than the moment they happened, sometimes for the rest of our lives. Living in the past does nothing but keep you in that emotional and negative energy state of that moment. We all make mistakes and wrong choices; no one is perfect. So as much as we try to drive down a smooth road, there are going to be bumps and potholes. The key to is to keep moving forward and look at those things in the rear view mirror as lessons and things you no longer have control over. You cannot changed what happened no matter how much you want to think you can. Forgiveness and moving on with your life is the only remedy for a bad event in the past. As in one of my previous posts, "Anyone can make a new ending.", you really do have control over your life and how you react to it. Instead of changing the past why not change the ending to your story and move on with life instead of living in regret or wishing you would have done something different. Because the fact of the matter is you did do it and it did happen. No amount of wishing, crying, anger, or depression will make time go backwards and the event not happen.
So when you end your day do just that, end it. Accept and show gratitude for what has happened and the lessons it brought. Then begin tomorrow with a complete notion of the gift that is a new day. For what you did yesterday is now history. Go into the new day with gratitude and positive energy. By controlling how you feel and respond to a new day you are controlling your life. Finish your day so you can live YOUR life!
