Daily Reflection: Today Is A New Day

Your future's so bright, you're going to need shades. Karen Walker Number One in Crazy Tort sunglasses, available via Revolve Clothing.

So, Today is a new day. It’s a clean slate to start whatever you like.

Today could be the day that you investigate new clothes for a brand-new spring look. You could plan to take your friend up on that crazy Burlesque class. Today might be the day you say “no” to something or someone that’s causing you strife, like that toxic friend or the HUGE tray of bagels in the office this morning.

Today could be the day that you decide to put yourself first and treat yourself to a nice cup of coffee, a great lipstick or an appointment with that hairdresser/waxer/aesthetician/massage therapist with hands of an archangel that will help you look your best. Today might be the day you decide that au naturel is the way to go and that a ponytail and tinted moisturizer makes you look amazing.

Today might be the day to spend within your means. It might also be the day to dream about a vacation. This might be the day to have “the talk.” It could be the day you figure out how to get yourself into a better situation in life. It might also be the day you figure out how to get yourself out of a bad one.

Today could be the day you decide to give yourself a break. It might be the day where you decide to call in “scared” (as in, “I’m afraid I won’t be able to make it to work today.”) You might spend the day walking in the sunshine, taking a giant catnap under a ray of sun (wear sunscreen, even indoors.)  Today could be the day you paint your toes and watch daytime television until you feel like taking another nap.

Today might be the day you get a brilliant idea. Today might be the day that you ride your brilliant idea all the way to the bank. Today might be the day you decide that you need a brilliant idea, then go right back to whatever you were doing.

Today could be the day you realize that you can do whatever you want, that you can be whoever you please…that you are in control.

Today is ready, willing and able to be whatever you want it to be. And if it doesn’t feel that way, then Tomorrow has already called in and said that it’s ready to take up whatever Today couldn’t handle.

Today is your day to do whatever you want. But with all those possibilities up there, it sounds like it’s going to be one for the record books. Put on some lipstick, honey. You’ve got a big day ahead of you.
