Things happen. When life forces us to start again instead of looking at it as a punishment we can look at it as a new chance. As a new opportunity to start again. Every day is a gift given to each of us by God. Each day is a new beginning, a new chance and a new opportunity to create something better, something new. So make the best of each day. Make the best of each moment.
We need to acknowledge the fact we are not finished products and that life is a continuous process of becoming. We go through life to become ourself. Through every little thing we do, through every word we say and through every action we take, we are meant to discover more and more about ourself – about our inner journey, and about the purpose and meaning of our own life.
Life is constantly changing, constantly evolving and constantly renewing itself, so no matter how hard and difficult it might be, embrace the current reality.
Engage in vulnerable, humble, honest and meaningful conversations with the Source of all things. Ask God, the Source of all things, to guide, to help and to assist. And at the end of each conversation, be sure to say an honest “thank you” for all the wonderful and precious gifts life will continue to send your way.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.” Philippians 4:6
Make peace with the idea that life is a journey, not a destination, and get into the habit of appreciating and enjoying each moment life sends. Be thankful for every day walked on this Earth. Embrace each moment, because each moment of life and each day is a priceless gift from God. Each day is a new beginning.
