“First days” tend to elicit excitement. We venture into the unknown, embark on a new adventure, and explore uncharted territory. First days are hopeful; and the possibilities are endless because we haven’t yet begun.
Now imagine having this “first day” feeling every day you wake up. This quote, by an unknown author, reminds us that every morning we wake up is literally the first day of the rest of our lives. As such, each day is an uncharted territory. It carries possibilities and hope, even during challenging times–especially during challenging times.
But starting each day “with broken pieces of yesterday,” compromises our ability to appreciate the present and have a fresh start toward the future.
