January 12th: New Beginnings

January 12th-New Beginnings

One of my favorite childhood writers, Lucy Maud Montgomery, once wrote, “Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes in it.”

I have remembered that line throughout my life, long now into my adulthood and loved the beauty and simplicity of the statement.

It reminds me that when I have a bad day, when I feel that I have failed, when I wish I had made better choices, that if I truly want to make a fresh start tomorrow… I will have one.

I like knowing that I can make a new resolution on any day of the year.

I like knowing that I can choose to be a better person on any given day.

When my heart is heavy with the choices I have made, it gives me hope to know that I can turn things around at any time with resolution, effort, and faith.

“Dear God, help me to have faith when I feel that I have failed. Help me to be resolved to try each day to be the best I can be.”
