"Every day is a gift — a new beginning . . . bound out of bed with the enthusiasm of a child."
How do you begin your day? With a cup of coffee? A cold beer? With steak and eggs? Or a doughnut? Do you drag yourself out of bed wishing you could spend the day sleeping? Are you wide awake and full of energy? Some people get up in the morning and say: "Good morning, Lord. It is great to be alive!" Other people get up and say: "O Lord, it's morning again." Which are you? Someone who appreciates each day she has been given? Or someone who finds no joy in living? How you begin your day can have a positive or negative impact on your creative work.
Do you begin your day with meditation? Or prayer? Do you take a walk? Or lift weights? Do you eat a healthy breakfast or do you skip the most important meal of the day? Be thankful for every day you wake up. The alternative to waking up is being six feet under. Celebrate the day and give thanks for all you have been given.
