every day is a new beginningEvery day is the same.

The sun rises, the darkness recedes. Bird calls get louder and then fade as the roar of traffic takes over.

Your alarm clock goes off (or maybe your dog wakes you up), you begin your morning ablutions, you take the same route, you get to work.

It’s another day.

Every day is not the same.

The sun rises, the darkness recedes. Bird calls get louder and then fade as the roar of traffic takes over.

But that’s where the similarity ends.

Every day is a new day.

A chance to start something new, maybe something small that will grow into something big.

A chance to let go of pain, frustration, weakness, anger, fear.

A chance to change something – even just one thing – that will make a difference to you, to someone else, maybe to several others.

Every day is yours.

Every. Single. Day.
