Promise of a new Day

Life is not always what one wants it to be, but to make it the best of it as it is, is the only way of being happy.
—Jennie Jerome Churchill—

The posture we take while preforming our tasks today, and the attitude we project toward those who cross our path, will emphatically influence what the day brings. No one else can decide for any one of us what we’ll feel or think about the day. We have the power to be as content or as discontent as we make up our minds to be.
A sign of maturity is acceptance of the full responsibility for the failures as well as the successes of the day. Another is a willingness to let go of the day’s outcomes, whatever they are, and ready ourselves to face tomorrow, confident and hopeful. Carrying yesterday’s baggage into today will only distort the size and shape of any bundle we must handle in the twenty-four hours ahead.
I begin the day free of yesterday, unburdened, hopeful, cheerful, confident, if I so choose.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
