Each new day

A road sign on the side of the highway I see each morning during my commute has two simple words on it.  It is a sign for a shelter and says- Begin Again.

Each new day is our chance to Begin Again. If we don't like where we are at- what can we do to change it? Things aren't going our way? Well they don't always do, but tomorrow we get the chance to try it again.

Bob Perks wrote a lovely piece on Beliefnet titled Begin Again. Quite a lovely post, I do say. The words have been resonating in my head for some time on this.

I was recently shopping and heard a song over the public address system that caught my attention. The lyrics asked "What are you going to do with your life?" Which is a question I have begun to ask myself often. What AM I going to do with my life? Am I living it mindlessly or am I going to LIVE it, doing what I enjoy. I could easily sit around and watch while others live theirs, living vicariously through them. That's not exactly fun though is it?  At the moment.. I am living it for all I can!

 The song is actually called What are you going to do with your life and is performed by Echo & the Bunnymen. Enjoy the song and the video


  1. Every single day you get another chance to be the person that you wished you were yesterday.

  2. best advice EVAR! Live life , watching, or living? I choose living

  3. Love the sign, and love the message more! Everyday is a conscious decision to live for something you believe in! Thank you for being the kind of light that truly lives, and for sharing it with us!

  4. Venom- Exactly the point.
    Fern Valley- The fun is there for each of us to seek out.
    El- If we each want something badly enough, we Will find a way to do it. Nothing will stand in our way. You are quite welcome. Enjoy the journey of life.

  5. Pixie, I am so glad you are living with a sense of purpose and renewal. You seem happy. Woot!!
