Every day is an opportunity

Every day, when the sun rises, is a new opportunity to start fresh.  To take the time you’ve been given and make something with it.  No one can do that for you.  You’ll never happen upon the life of your dreams by just floating along.

Time marches on whether we make something of it or not.  It’s up to us to make our time count.  To make it mean something to us and to those around us.  Make it count, build a life you’re proud of, by making good decisions.  Our lives aren’t defined by what happens to us but instead by how we react to it.  Every reaction is a decision.  Every decision is an opportunity to lead you towards or away from the life you want.  Every good decision is a building block towards your future.  Every hasty, careless decision has potential to lead you down a path you never wanted to be on.

Be thoughtful with your time.  You can’t get it back.  Spend it on people, places and things that energize you.  On things that create potential for you to grow and succeed.  Or on things that will grow and succeed because of you.  Spending our time wisely leaves us with a sense of purpose.  Mean something to someone, to yourself and life will mean something to you.

The earth rotates, the sun shines, the trees grow, the water flows, regardless of how we spend our time.  We’re the ones responsible for doing something with the opportunity we’ve been given.  Your life is a canvas and time is your paint brush.  What will you create with it?
