The gray clouds floating away for a dreamy day

When you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing that goes through your mind? Remember that when you get out of your bed you have conquered the biggest decision of the day. The choice to be present in a new day. Our motion to wake up is through a source of motivation. No matter what stage we are in our lives if we can remind ourselves that we made an effort to wake up, then anything is possible.
I’m not sure if you are like me, and are easily nervous, worrisome and the biggest judge of yourself if something doesn’t go right. It’s very often we are our toughest critic and we magnify our flaws, where others may only see a speck, freckle or nothing. Nobody is perfect. It’s the desire and passion to be a better person than yesterday, to improve and learn from our mistakes, to love those around and be empathetic of others past and present. This shows a genuine person.
It’s important to remind ourselves that we only live once. It’s important to live well, live good and live to the fullest. If you ever feel you are suffering, feeling down or simply worried, remind yourself of the stars above, the sun, the ocean, the mountains and the 7 billion other people in this world. They are on this Earth with you, walking their own journey, facing new chapters as you are.
