Today is a new day - make it count by doing something different

Last Update: January 24, 2018


Today the sun rose
Today the sun will set
How will YOU make this day
Your greatest day yet?


Today is THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!.

None of us know what that really means - years, months, days, hours? We all hope for a long and happy life, and I truly wish that for you if that is what you wish for yourself. Yesterday is gone, let it go with grace and gratitude.
The only time that matters is NOW.

So ask yourself this question today, and answer it honestly:

What will you do today that is different from yesterday?

There's a wonderful old adage that goes:

"If you always do what you've always done,
You'll always get what you've always got"

Why not make today your wonderful NEW START DAY. Here are a few ideas:

  • Do something different from your usual routine
  • Take a different route to work
  • Start a new blog
  • Talk to someone new
  • Wear your hair in a different way or wear some different clothes
  • Make a list of goals for the 'rest of your life' then start on the first one
  • Read a new book, paper or magazine
  • Research something new on the internet
  • Make something unusual for dinner
  • Start a new project
  • Finish that old project you've been ignoring for weeks

The list is endless but the point is the same - DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT TODAY.

What's the worst that could happen? You never know - you could discover something new!

Have a wonderful day of discovery.

Love and light,
Gail

Hi Gail, it's not so much that I learnt something new, it's more that it reinforced thoughts I had that I posted on my website a week ago around the importance of taking small steps to do something different, such a new route to work or ordering different food at a restaurant, because it's those small things that help us to move out of our comfort zone and grow.

I always enjoy reading uplifting posts and meeting people that are on a similar wavelength to me :)

Good morning Gail. What a great way to look at the day. It inspires me to clean off my desk. It's so covered with all my research, (well organized of course) that I haven't seen the top of it for weeks. Who knows, I might even write that post I've been thinking about. Thanks for starting the day off right.

What a great post. Well, today instead of just walking on the treadmill I found a YouTube walk at home video and followed that. Verdict - I loved it and will look for more! Then this afternoon I finished a project - I spent time tidying up my new blog planner folder and typing up all the loose bits of paper with bits of information everywhere that I've been meaning to sort for weeks. So that was my day of discovery!

Hi Megan. Thanks for your kind words and glad to see that you have indeed had a day of discovery. I'm off to sort through my own piles of paper so am following my own advice too. Glad you liked the new video you watched too - will have to look that one up as it sounds fun. Happy days. Gail

Good luck with the paper pile! This is the one I did this morning and I was shocked how more difficult walking is with the arms! It was a 15-minute walking for weightloss YouTube by Lucy Wyndham-Read

Have a great day - I'm about to head to bed :)
