Yesterday was a lesson. Whether you choose to learn from it or to ignore it is entirely in your gift. This choice is a miracle of life.
Yesterday was a lesson. Think back. What was the very best thing about yesterday? What was the very worst? Why didn’t you do that one thing differently? Can you believe how well that other thing went?
Yesterday is also yesterday. Over and done. Whether you choose to learn from yesterday’s lesson or to ignore it is entirely in your gift. This choice is a miracle of life.
It was a miracle also that you woke up yesterday, that air filled your lungs, that you were gifted another day in this world, that you made it through the entire day.
Today is just as much of a miracle.
Yesterday was a lesson. If you choose, you can learn from yesterday. Do today better. Do better today. Make today better. Make someone else’s day better. Recognise the miracle that you have been gifted today. Another day this side of the dirt.
Today is another lesson. And – if you are lucky enough to make it through – so are tomorrow and the day after.
Be kind to yourself and to others. May today be nothing but kind to you and yours. May the sun shine on you today.
