A New Day, Every Day

December 30, 2009

Write it on your heart

that every day is the best day in the year.

He is rich who owns the day,

and no one owns the day

who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

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, tomorrow is a

new day;

begin it well and serenely,

with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear, with its hopes and invitations,

to waste a moment on the yesterdays…

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~


Life has the color that each one wants to give it. The ideal would be if the day would always be a true rainbow with beautiful sunshine. Unfortunately it is not; the day can begin radiant and finish in the darkness, dark like the night when the day ends. Meantime, there is a mixture of tones, according to the color that we give to each minute of our day. In the white fabric ofย  life, there is an obstinate brush that from time to time drops a gray, black or even a purple, everything turns completely sadder, matte, cloudier. However, the next day is a new day, a new hope, a new smile, a new fabric with colors, colors and more colors are at our disposal, we only have to choose. Sometimes there is someone who would help us to choose the right ones, but at the end of the day… the option is always only ours.

Have a Blessed New Year!
