There was never a night or a problem that could defeat sunrise or hope. – B Williams
When we were staying in the mountains last weekend, I saw the most amazing sunrise each morning. I was in awe of its beauty and the colors it created in the sky. I realised this miracle happens everyday, no matter what is happening in my life.
With the many changes that take place over our lifetime we can be certain of a few things; that the sun will rise and will set each day and as it greets us each morning, we can choose how we act, think and speak. We can choose to begin each day with positive energy and to be present in everything we do.
“Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes, (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won’t).” James Baraz
Make time to watch the miracle of a sunrise and remind yourself to be present to “what is” in your life. Remind yourself that like the sunrise, this too will pass, and tomorrow is always a new day.
