Copy of You Better Change Your Attitude!

Today, as I woke up, I embraced the notion that this day marks the beginning of my new journey. (Psst…every day is) Today is June 7th, one month since I turned... well, my age. I’ve said that I celebrate a birth month, not just a birthday. So as my birth month comes to an end, I look ahead to this new year and new life.


It's easy to think that a new life means a complete overhaul – new place, new job, new relationships, new me – where everything sparkles with joy and beauty. But waiting for those changes to materialize might mean waiting a very long time … or - for never. So, today, I declare it: this is the first day of my new life.


I recently saw a post from a sister who declared herself ugly. She expressed the many reasons she felt justified in claiming this kind of internalized disapproval of herself. I felt such pain for her and for all of us who have some type or level of self-hate. We all need a First Day of starting a new life.


The bible tells us in Proverbs 4:23 to "keep your heart with all diligence for out of the heart come the issues of life". Your "heart" refers to your core values, beliefs, thoughts and feelings. And the issues of life, those are your actions, your reactions, your words, your relationship to others and God, and so on. These can be pure or impure/honorable or dishonorable, depending on the condition of your heart, and the decisions that you’ve made there.


So, what can we do to change our days? Can today REALLY be the FIRST day of a NEW life? I think many of us can start with a shift in perspective. A shift in who we want to be, how we want to see ourselves and knowing that each of us was created with purpose. Thats not easy. We have to believe in this new beginning… with our whole heart. If not, it's just an exercise in creative time wasting.


Then, we must take action. So today, I choose to start by adjusting my attitude. I'll adopt the mindset of someone living a vibrant, fulfilling life.


In this new life, what would I envision? A beautiful living space where creativity thrives, where I can both work and entertain effortlessly. A car that brings me not just from place to place, but with a sense of safety and enjoyment. And a fearless spirit, unburdened by anxieties about bridges or unfamiliar roads, unknown spaces and hurtful faces.


I'd engage more with the world around me, attend more events, have better self-care habits, and spend more quality time with loved ones, cherishing every moment. I'd uplift others, empowering them with my words and actions, spreading encouragement wherever I go. And I would continue to let people know how much God loves them, no matter from where or what they come.


In this new life, health would be a priority. Nourishing my body with wholesome food, staying active, hugging more trees (lol, taking great pictures of them), and relishing the beauty of nature. Aging would be a graceful journey, marked by strength, fitness and overall well-being.


But today, it all begins with my attitude. I choose to embody the spirit of someone living a new, enriching life – one filled with happiness, purpose, generosity, and boundless possibilities, where age is not a hinderance but an advantage. I know that I will not be successful in my efforts every day. But I will have compassion and love for myself. I will be as understanding and forgiving as if I were my own very best friend.


"As I wake up to the dawning of a new day, I'm filled with the promise of fresh beginnings and fresh mercies. I immerse myself in the excitement of self-discovery.
