Today's gift 2/2


The beginning is the most important part of the work.

On occasion we feel a bit sad as we ready ourselves for bed, knowing that our bedtime routine marks the end of another day. We may experience a slight sense of loss - time lost, opportunities lost, and a piece of life gone forever. Or we may be filled with regret over words uttered harshly.

We can put this back into perspective with the realization that the nicest part about going to bed at night is knowing the daylight will come in the morning. We can't erase today's mistakes, but we can leave them with the day now past. We can set our sights on tomorrow. The day we awaken to will hold a golden opportunity - to make amends, to make changes, to use our time well, to start the rest of our lives anew.

My life is made of some endings and many beginnings. I can choose to end an unproductive pattern by seeing it as a chance to begin.
