I’m obsessed with taking pictures of sunrise because of what it represents. Every morning we are presented with an opportunity to start afresh and put into practice the lessons we learned from yesterdays. I took the above picture on my recent family vacation in Durban. I stood there mesmerized with the realization of the new opportunities and gifts it brings. All of a sudden I was beaming with excitement and full of hope. And yes what a great day it was!
Dwelling in the past prevent us to move on from our failures and pain. We get so stuck up on how bad we screwed up or how we could’ve done better and as a result we let it define us.
I have learned to forget my past, to forgive myself and begin again – and I must say it has now became easier. I no longer find myself crying in the corner contemplating on how I could’ve done better. The amazing thing about this life is we can always begin again.
So you know that relationship that didn’t work and you blame yourself? Remember that presentation which didn’t go so well because you didn’t prepare enough? The new year’s resolutions goals you didn’t accomplish yet even though we have only two months left of 2018? Guess what, you can start right now to work on your goals and dreams. You still have a chance to be the best person you’ve always wanted to be!
Always we begin again! It’s a brand-new day and you should be inspired to be greater than you were yesterday.

Wishing you all the best.
