new year – new day

Finish every day and be done with it…
You have done what you could;
some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in;
forget them as soon as you can.
To-morrow is a new day;
you shall begin it well and serenely,
and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

 

In preparation for tomorrow, I am grateful for Emerson’s wisdom. It is a reminder for all of us to begin each day open handed and ready to receive all the day has to give.

As the sun sets on 2019 I treasure the moments, the memories and grieve the losses. Like the view in the image above, I will wake tomorrow knowing a new year stretches out in front of me – in front of all of us.

The year will fill soon enough. Begin it well.

This day is precious
created as it is
for each one of us
to fulfil our purpose
This day is precious
Treat it with care
