Things don’t change – our life doesn’t change – by getting up in the morning and thinking today is no different than any other day. “I’ll just do like I always do.” “I’ll do my routine.” (So many times, we tell ourselves this simply because we’re tired even when we get up in the morning. So, we honestly sometimes hope that we can do the routine.)
Our life doesn’t change by accident or without our knowing it. Sure, life happens and the circumstances of our life change all the time – either life kicking us in the gut or life passing us by – is what we call this.
But, our life which we bring forth into the world – the life we create – the life we want to pursue – comes from within us.
This part of our life changes when we get up in the morning and say to ourselves, “I’m going to try harder today to bring forth something new – to make a change – either I’m going to think differently today, I’m going to see what I can do to make something different today, or I’m going to do something to work at changing something in my heart, or inside my mind, or in my actions, today.”
For many of us, at the end of the day, we want to be able to say, “I did something different today. I changed something today.”
And maybe, “I’ll say the same thing to myself, again, tomorrow morning.”
