The first day of the rest of your life

The first day of the rest of your life

Today is it… it’s the first day of the rest of your life. I’m sure you’ve heard that before, probably many times, but have you really stopped to think about it? It’s the FIRST day… remember your first day of school each year? How did it feel? I know that for me, each year, I spent the weeks before in both disappointment that the summer was over, and excitement to start the new school year. I was always a bit scared, nervous and unsure, anticipating what would unfold in the upcoming months. At the same time I felt alive, awake, present, confident, curious, hopeful, and full of wonder.

Here’s the question – if today is the FIRST day of the rest of YOUR life, how do you feel? If you already know what is going to happen, how you are going to be, have no reason to be unsure or nervous, and nothing to wonder about; you’re probably not feeling very excited, awake, present, our curious… Can you rid your mind of “already knowing” so that you can at least get some of that back?
