I always feel much better about my day when I wake up early. An early morning really grounds my day and sets me up for success.
And on days when I stay up way too late and inevitably sleep away my morning (and somehow not hear my alarm) I can’t help but feel stressed and see the day as a wash.
But that’s not true. I may have missed a few hours in the morning, but that doesn’t mean the rest of the day is a waste. It would be a waste, however, if I myself fall into that poor mindset and give up the day.
Even though it doesn’t always feel like it, each new day is a fresh start.
A new day to prove myself.
Scratch that. Every second is a chance to prove ourselves.
Not to prove my worth—who I am means more than just what I do—rather, to prove to myself that I can create.
Every blog I write is proof that I’m a writer. Someone who is working on his craft and challenging himself every day.
Every time I pick up the guitar, I’m proving to myself that I’m a musician.
Every day is a chance to show yourself and people around you that you are committed. Committed to your craft(s). Committed to your dream(s). And each new day is also a chance to recommit when you falter, or experience a dip.
Do I want this? Yes.
Am I half-assing it? Yes—then recommit. No—then keep proving it.
