Good Morning: Give Every Day Your All

“A man can do only what he can do. But if he does that each day he can sleep at night and do it again the next day.”
 ~Albert Schweitzer
Those of you who have taken the Change Your Life
Challenge program or are Make Today Matter members know that I believe, “Just because our lives are complicated doesn’t mean our systems have to be!”
Today’s quote helps me to realize that our lives don’t need to be complicated either. Schweitzer has articulately stated what it means to have a “fulfilling day” regardless of what happens between sunrise and sundown.
Somewhere along the way, we have learned to make our days more complicated than necessary by focusing on things that are not within our control. Or we spend a large part of our day sidetracked by the past or pre-occupied with the future. If we keep our hearts and minds focused on the day at hand and “give it all we’ve got,” then we can rest soundly at night.
Your Turn:
Today, push back thoughts of yesterday and worries about tomorrow. Stay focused on the day and moments at hand. Give it all you’ve got–then sleep soundly tonight.
Your Affirmation:
I give each day my all.
