Todays a new day. It’s your day. You shape it.
Don’t let it be shaped by someone else’s
ignorance or fear.
April 22nd - What’s new?
Yesterday ended last night, today is a brand new day. And it’s yours.
We often say, upon meeting someone, ‘What’s new?” We love learning the new, especially about ourselves, if it doesn’t hurt too much. We have a variety of expressions, upon hearing the news which indicate our difficulty in accepting the new. We say, You got to be kidding. Are you pulling my leg? Get out of here with that ! Nonsense! Or, you’re talking through your hat. Believing the new is an old problem.
Sometimes we need proof so we believe. Believing is hard for us, as we rely so much on the immediate data from computers, electronic social media. Just stop and count all the various devices you can have by which you can obtain information. It’s amazing how quickly we find things out and rest assured in it. Believing is not an easy habit or practice.
We are given the gifts of mind and heart, both can never be satisfied. The new is kind of a trick, becoming old as soon as it is digested. The heart longs not so much for satisfaction but for completion which it can never have.
I love to learn something new every day. And am hoping for the good news that soon this will all be over and a thing of the past. Meanwhile the news comes with more heartache with it. I’m trying to see the bright side, where sunny days are ahead for all.
The say we shouldn’t just hope for a better future, but build one.
With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.
