Although time seems to fly, it never travels faster than one day at a time. Each day is a new opportunity to live your life to the fullest. In each waking day, you will find scores of blessings and opportunities for positive change. Do not let your TODAY be stolen by the unchangeable past or the indefinite future! Today is a new day! ― Steve Maraboli
Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is. What you mean when you do a thing will always determine the outcome. The law creates the world. ― Brenna Yovanoff
There are many tragedies in life, the greatest of all I believe is abandoning your goals and the things you dream of. That ‘thing’ that stops us from following our hearts or abandoning our goals is usually so painful that it stops us in our tracks. It could be any ‘thing!’ Loss, like the passing of a loved one, the passing of a beloved pet, a bad breakup, that feeling of despair, because life’s not always fair, can be so crippling, it takes all the steam out of you.
For some of us, that once vibrant soul, so full of energy, wishful dreams, hope, and joy, becomes vacant and discontent. When we can no longer fuel our desires it’s difficult to keep our thoughts pure, each day becomes just that more difficult to cope with the world’s seemingly relentless urge to break our will and crush our souls into submission. How do we keep the intentions that once fueled our desire for happiness, peace, joy, love? By remembering life has offered us no guarantees. The guarantees that we have imagined were created in our souls.
Today is a new day and it brings with it a new set of opportunities for me to act on. I am attentive to the opportunities and I seize them as they arise. I have full confidence in myself and my abilities. I can do all things that I commit myself to. No obstacle is too big or too difficult for me to handle because what lies inside me is greater than what lies ahead of me. I am committed to improving myself and I am getting better daily. I am not held back by regret or mistakes from the past. I am moving forward daily. Absolutely nothing is impossible for me. ― Idowu Koyenikan
