“Each sunrise brings a new day with new hopes for a new beginning” — Anonymous
I am an early riser as you can probably tell by most of my posts. I enjoy the quiet each day before the world I orbit in with my partner, kids and dog are all awake. I love to start each day with reading, meditating and my cup of coffee. Starting the day from a place of calmness almost always sets me up to stay calmer and more centered through out the day.
When I started into work this morning, even though it was still dark out, I could not help but think about the sunrise. There is something about experiencing the wonderful, beautiful masterpiece that the sky awakening brings that brightens my morning and reminds that each day is new and to be grateful. Each day we have the opportunity to be better than the one before.
As this is the first week of the new year at my job, I am overjoyed to start anew and see what this coming year brings. I love beginnings; there is an excitement that comes with starting fresh! Thinking and dreaming about all the possibilities of the next 365 days makes me almost giddy with anticipation for Wednesday!
I am hopeful as I launch into this year with many new ideas and plans. I am anticipating seeing more sunrises. Of being more present to appreciate each one as a reminder of the beauty in this world and that no matter how dark the night, the sun will rise.
What does the sunrise bring to mind for you? I hope it will help you focus and remember we have another new day to be thankful for. That we are ALL connected through this one action in the sky each morning and evening; as there is always a sunrise and sunset somewhere. I can’t help but think how wonderful that is to know; that we each get a new beginning every single day and with glorious colors!
Happy New Year!
