“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die, and the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
⏤Mahatma Gandhi, leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India
When I first read this quote, I felt pretty down at the thought of dying each evening, with a sense of finality that something⏤in this case, my day⏤was over.
Many of us experience similar feelings when our weekends, vacations, or other happy times come to an end.
Consider that the same is true for bad times, and uncomfortable events we may want to wish away.
To wake up and be reborn each new day excites me with the possibilities of new and wondrous things I can intentionally do, with a fresh perspective and a fresh canvas to draw upon.
How can you interpret today’s quote to make the very best of each new day you are fortunate enough to experience?
