We are born, we live and then we die. A life filled with a mixture of happy moments, a bit of suffering and hopefully not too many regrets. It’s so easy to get to the middle of your life and feel that you have screwed it up so badly that there is no way you will ever be able to put it all right. If you view your life in one 60-80 year chunk then that would seem a reasonable conclusion. However, There is another way of looking at it.
Every night when we go to sleep we essentially die. Every morning when we awake we are reborn into a brand new life. Start every day with the right attitude. Start with the innocent joy of a newborn child. The past doesn’t need to ruin your present. Today is a new life. Start it with joy in your heart. Think, act and live like you are starting today with a clean sheet. If you can keep that life affirming attitude up all day, then that life will have been well lived. Now, lay your head on your pillow, close your eyes and look forward to your next life. Reincarnate tomorrow – let your inner child shine its light into the world anew.
