The sparkling new year is upon us like a bright, shiny quarter ready to spend or save—depending on your sensibilities. With resolutions already falling to the wayside, I was reassured when I came across this quote by L.M. Montgomery from Anne of Green Gables: “Isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes yet?”
I think it’s a wonderful thing to imagine every day that way. Each day is a pristine start. There is a reason to wake up in the morning. It’s fresh, with no mistakes or problems. We can choose what to make of it.
For some, the new year ahead seems to loom over them like a giant wave that’s about to crash onto them and sweep them away into the bottomless ocean. I would hope that those people would see themselves swimming to the beach, trudging across the soft sand and scrambling up the cliffside. From atop that glorious perch, the world seems brighter. It seems possible to soar in the clouds with the birds again.
Whether your life seems like one big mistake or you just had a bad day today, I hope you can see tomorrow as a clean start with hope for the future—one day at a time.
