Make today SPECIAL !
If we have been allowing things to get us down, letting people or things or events really make us depressed, why not start to make changes and why not start today?!!
Let today be a SPECIAL day. Start by dismissing all past disappointments, all the hurts and frustrations. Think only about the fact that THIS is a brand new day, one to be used constructively and happily.
Maybe the efforts of yesterday didn’t bring us closer to our goals, whatever they may be, maybe we feel that nothing is going to work out, no matter what we do…….is that feeling familiar? Well it is because of all owing ourselves to feel beaten that we ARE beaten……..and let’s change that TODAY!!!
There is nothing that prevents us having a new beginning to our lives, but it depends on US!
The past has gone……..will you let it go? The future is not certain, not yet, BUT, today is yours, it is here now, and we can use it differently TODAY!! Us it before it goes!
Today has a wealth of opportunities, it can be as full as we can make it. The way we handle things now will plant seeds for the future, because starting to THINK differently will make us ACT differently, and that will change our lives.
We need not remain as we are now, just let’s monitor our thinking for the next 24 hours and see how the way we think controls the way we act and the results we get in our lives. There is always time to start afresh. It takes courage and determination, but so does anything worth while. I am not saying that our lives will always be ideal, but accept the inevitable if no change is possible, adjust to conditions that are beyond our control, and realise that change can be brought about IN SPITE OF CIRCUMSTANCES.
Think about this story:
There were some young athletes who were entered for a competition. The goal was to run a long distance and then at the end, climb to the top of a very high tower.The prize was to be great . A big crowd had gathered to see the race and cheer on the contestants...The race began...Honestly, No one in crowd really believed that any of them would reach the top of the tower.You heard statements such as:"Oh, WAY too difficult!! They will NEVER make it to the top."or: "Not a chance that they will succeed. The tower is too high!" The runners began collapsing. One by one...The crowd continued to yell "It is too difficult!!! No one will make it!" More got tired and gave up... ...But ONE continued higher and higher and higher... This one wouldn’t give up!...and he eventually made it! Everyone naturally wanted to know how this one athlete managed to do it?
Afterwards someone asked the winner how he had found the strength to reach the goal? It turned out...That the winner was DEAF!!!!
The wisdom of this story is: Be Positive! And be DEAF when people tell YOU that YOU cannot achieve your goals!
Make today a SPECIAL Day!
