Happy new year! May 2021 be your best year yet. But most importantly, may you work on being the best version of yourself yet. Because let's be realistic, it is not the year that needs to be better, it's YOU. Your habits, your mentality, your prayer life, your relationships. I hope that each person reading this will make a conscious decision to work on themselves mentally, physically and spiritually.
I have read something recently while scrolling through different people's new year resolutions on instagram and it made a strong impact on me:
"I refuse to believe that my best days are behind or ahead. I'll bet on TODAY"
Wow... How much time do we waste on either regretting the past or being anxious about the future? Or how much time do we waste thinking that our best days are behind us or that we will finally be happy when we reach a certain season of life?
Truth is, what is gone is gone and tomorrow is not promised. All we truly have is the present moment...right here right now.
What if we decided today to enjoy our lives as if it could not get any better than what it currently is? What would happen if we decided to be present to enjoy the beauty of what we have now instead of constantly thinking that happiness resides somewhere else? Imagine how wonderful life will be if we simply decide to grasp every second we have and embrace it with gratitude. Everything around us holds a little bit of magic that we can only notice when we take the time to slow down and take it all in.
So friends, let's bet on today. Happiness is yours today. Joy is yours today. Peace is yours today. CHOOSE to grasp what is right in front of you.
