Each sunrise brings with it a breath of life.
Literally, the world re-awakens with each new day
Each new day is an opportunity to rise from your slumber and go again
It’s the perpetual cycle of nature, the setting of the sun, only for it to rise
With each ending, a new beginning
With each death, an opportunity for new life
Each day affords you the opportunity – the opportunity to maintain the status quo, to keep things as they are
or the opportunity to put yesterday behind you
Today is literally new day
Bringing with it new possibilities
Today, if you want to, you can start again
You can breath new life into whatever it is you’re doing
You can start something, giving birth to your new idea
You can revisit a failure and go give it another shot
It’s not too late, it never was, it never is
Your efforts are never futile
Time stops for no-one.
If you don't go on with it, it will simply go on without you.
One thing you can always be sure of, is that the sun will always rise again
No world wars
No nuclear holocaust
No death or birth will ever change the fact that tomorrow will come
Bringing with it, if nothing else, new hope
And as sure as the sun rises, so can you
The world is full of wonder
All you need to do is answer the call when it comes knocking on your window every morning
Make no mistake, the sun never stops shining, not even on the blind
Not even on those who choose to ignore it - it's always there, bringing with it new life.
So may every sunset bring you rest and may every sunrise continue to bring you hope.
Today, tell yourself, I will start again.
And then go ahead and do just that.
