So I’m switching things up in regards to my photography challenge–there are hopefully going to be a few more inspirational/motivational pictures going up instead of all cats, dogs, fish, birds, and nature (though those will still be coming as well).
Today’s inspirational/motivational quote is something that I think everyone can use–a basic reminder that every day is a fresh start. As humans we seem to like to dwell on the past (yes it is good to remember important events–but the past is there for us to learn from, not repeat). There are times when I do think that as a human race we’re going to be doomed to repeat our pasts, due to that one saying ‘Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it’. So yes, we need to learn and remember–but not dwell on the fact that something bad had happened in the past (unless you have a time machine–there is little we can do about it now), we need to use it as a learning tool to make sure that some similar doesn’t happen again.
It also means that if you miss a workout, or if your nutrition isn’t spot on–tomorrow is a fresh start.
I also posted this because I needed the reminder that everyday is a fresh start. A fresh start in my job search, my personal development journey, my professional development journey, and this blog. I know that there are days when I’m not going to do my workout, days when I don’t feel like trying to work on the job search, and that’s okay–tomorrow is another day, and it is one that has a blank slate. The daily story is whatever you want to write–it can be something fresh and new, an “edit” of a previous day, or a continuation of a previous day–the choice is yours.
