“Every Moment Is A Fresh Beginning”

There have been moments I have said I can’t wait until the day is over, or I can’t wait until after a certain time period has passed so that I don’t have to deal with a particular situation or person.

As I was driving the other day, I saw a billboard with the T.S. Eliot quote,

Every moment is a fresh beginning”

I paused and thought, EVERY… not some… not a few… but EVERY moment.

That’s when I was reminded that I don’t have to wait until the next day to have a fresh start. I don’t have to wait until next year, or until I leave the job, or until I move, or whatever, for a fresh beginning.

My FRESH BEGINNING can start right NOW. It starts in my attitude and thinking.

It starts with me saying that I’m not going to allow a situation or person to dictate my mood, the way I feel, or my outcome.

Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% percent how you respond to it. ~Charles R. Swindoll

Whatever happened, happened. I can’t rewind time and change what happened the past year, past month, past week, past day, or past hour.

BUT, I can change my response to what’s happening.

Today, CHOOSE to respond and react differently to what’s happening in your life.

When something crazy happens,

  • Take a deep breath
  • Think before you respond or react
  • Remember that EVERY MOMENT (which can literally mean the next minute or next second) is an opportunity for a NEW BEGINNING.

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!
