Each Day is a New Start

Every day is a chance for a new beginning. It doesn't matter what the circumstances were yesterday; what matters is getting to today. When you wake up every morning, remember that every day is full of possibilities just waiting to be seized. It's a fresh day, a clean slate. You are about to begin a new chapter in your life.

All of the inconsistencies that took place are the doings of yesterday. You do not have to let them be the undoing of your present and the future. As the famous quote by Eleanor Roosevelt goes, “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. Today is present, which is why it’s called a gift.”

Whatever happened yesterday, leave it there. Do not let the burden of yesterday’s inconsistencies weigh you down. Do not let the lack of motivation yesterday overshadow the spirits of today. If you wallow in what happened before, you will fail to source your energy to move forward.

Each day is a new slate for us to write the happenings for that day. Think of it this way – if you keep scribbling what happened, you will be stuck in the loop of the past. Your goals for the future will turn to dust. Consequently, all that you will attempt to do will not make any sense. And when nothing makes sense, you will end up thinking, “What and why am I doing anything when I achieved nothing?”

What dwelling in the past does is serve as a reflection. It is not there for you to accept as your reality. Your reality is what you choose to do today that can impact your future for the betterment.

If you wish to reverse being stuck and set yourself to motion, you will have to change things for yourself. In many ways, you can do so, the first being, take your past as a reflection to not make the same mistakes.

Once you recognize your errors, you can avoid them.

The next step to take is to accept that yesterday will only influence your future if you let it. You have the power to change the course of your life. If something was done wrongly yesterday, you could always amend it, as long as you are willing to.

Accepting that yesterday is gone, let it take away your fatigue and frustration. Replace that with the energy of the new morning sun. This is why people tend to start their day with meditation or exercise. Do anything that allows you to bask under the morning sun. It will give you a sense of freshness, boosting your mood and morale.

With a good mood, you will find your energy bubbling. You can then transfer that energy into accomplishing your tasks and setting things right. The gist of it all is, once you can understand how your past is not holding you back, it is you. You can reverse things for yourself.

Once you understand that you have the power to make a change and utilize each day to the fullest, you will be able to seek your lost motivation once more.
