A Brand New Day

When I was a teenager I watched a movie on TV starring the great Barbara Stanwyck.  In one scene it’s morning and she’s waking up her children. She walks to the window and throws open the curtains to let the sunlight in.  And she declares, “It’s a brand new day that’s never been used!”

That phrase has stuck with me ever since – the concept that each new day is a clean slate, a chance to start over.  Forget what you did yesterday, whatever blunders or mistakes you made or the laziness that got into you (as it gets into us all!).  And tomorrow is no guarantee. So we have today, a chance to write that story that’s been rolling around in your head, or to begin that book you’ve been itching to write, or to drag out that manuscript that somehow got becalmed around page 200, and dust it off and look at it with fresh eyes.

The world and all its choices and possibilities awaits, because today is a brand new day that’s never been used
