“It’s A New Day”

Every so often someone will tell me that they had a “bad day,” and sometimes I find myself saying it as well. Yet in the grand scheme of life, is there really a bad day? Sure, not every day goes as we had planned or hoped. We receive bad news, we struggle with problems not of our own, we find ourselves drained, both emotionally and physically. I guess that can justify being a “bad day.”

I know I’ve had much more of my share in the last month, yet I have to keep reminding myself to be grateful for even the bad days, because truth is, we had another day, whether it was good or bad.

We were gifted yet another day of life, and another day to “do it better than the day before.”

Embrace all your days and make the most of them. Be grateful for another day to spend with your loved ones. Wake up in the morning knowing that anything is possible, and count your blessings from the day as you go to sleep at night.

You just need to have faith and believe.

Wishing you love and light,

“A New Day, A New Chance”

“Every new day is a chance to do it better than the day before.”

~Anne Dennish~

So what are you going to do different TODAY than you did YESTERDAY? Think about it for a minute…

What was your day like yesterday? Was it happy, did you encounter some problems, were you in a good mood? Now, once you’ve thought about that question, think about the “why.”

I had an exciting adventure yesterday morning as Sutton Thomas and I were interviewed on 94.3 The Point radio. It was a beautiful morning on the Asbury Park boardwalk, and thept perfect way to start a Friday morning at the Jersey Shore.

Yet as the day wore on, and the humidity rose to almost 100%, I found myself in a position to have to handle some issues, which I would rather have not had to handle…but I did.

While I was a bit apprehensive to face these issues head on, I’m glad that I did. A problem or two was solved, I felt relieved, and I moved on. I let it go…

So, what will I do differently today than I did yesterday?

I’ll put the “care and feeding” of myself first, because when I do that, I’m much better at handling anything that should arise during the day, and that happiness I feel from doing that will spill onto those around me.

I’ll remember that it’s not my place, or my job, to handle someone else’s problems; all I can do is support them through it.

And I’m going to let it all go and begin this day as I do every new day…as an exciting new adventure!

Wishing you love and light,

“A Martini Glass of Tears”

Yesterday was a bad day…and I don’t have those very often. My feelings were hurt, I heard some news that was upsetting, and the realization of who I thought was a friend turned out not to be true. Needless to say, the martini glass was filled with tears by the end of the night.martini glass 1

Yet bad days happen for a reason; they allow us to see what the good days really are. Yesterday was a compilation of all the changes happening in my life at the moment (and most of them are all good!), feeling beat up and manipulated by someone, and knowing that life has just handed me another challenge.

I went to bed in tears last night, and woke up this morning with swollen eyes. But I woke up better. I cried it all out and I believe with all my heart that a good cry is our soul’s way of cleansing all the negativity within us. I had had a week in which negative stuff was building up day by day, and last night it all broke open.

tearsThis morning I woke with the dawn, and sat outside with my coffee, listening to my intuition and the voices of reason that can only be heard in the silence. I’m not upset anymore, and the hurt that I felt from outside sources has lessened. They’ve lessened because I’ve forgiven them…not to their face, or over the phone. I’ve forgiven their hurtful behavior so that I’m not hurt or angry. And I’ve forgiven myself for allowing it to bother me in the first place.

We are in control of our emotions, and perhaps mine exploded last night due to fatigue and sleepless nights. Those are key factors in our “falling apart.” It’s so important to stay healthy and well rested, because when we’re not, our emotions take advantage of us, and we simply don’t have the strength to be strong.

“When you can’t find the strength, let the strength find you.”

My strength found me this morning with the sunrise, a hot cup of coffee, and feeling well rested. Moments like the one I had yesterday have to happen every so often. I believe they’re good for us at times, as long as it’s not happening every day.

“Trials, tribulations and blessings are one in the same because you can’t have one without the other.”

Our greatest blessings come from the lessons we learn from our trials and tribulations, and I truly believe that if we understand that, then we have found the secret to life.

Today is a good day, and I know it will get better. The martini glass that was once filled with tears is empty…and a new day is upon me, with no mistakes in it.

“Every new day is chance to do it better than the day before.”

Wishing you love and light, my friends,
