I can’t remember the last time I had a free Saturday night. Usually I am busy with homework, housework or just coming in late from some event, but tonight, I am completely free. Mind you, there is a pile a of laundry that needs done, but tonight, I’m going to ignore it and give myself the night off.
We all need that every once in a while, a night to ourselves for our own pleasures/hobbies. Forgetting or not allowing time for yourself will suck the very life out of you if you let it. We have to remember to let ourselves off the hook every once in a while because even though there is never enough time in a day, there is always tomorrow.
Tonight, I’m off. I’m allowing myself a little me time which I’ll be using to write a bit, catch up on some reading, and maybe take a bubble bath! Oh, now we’re talking dirty! If only I had a glass of wine..
What makes any one person believe they were better than they were yesterday? What gives someone the sense that they have somehow taken a step in the right direction from the day before?
Is it accomplishment based? Is it by being kinder? Or is it just noticing a subtle change in your mood compared to the day before?
What makes us believe that today we are a better version of ourselves than we were yesterday, and tomorrow holds even more promise?
I like to think that each day I grow as a person. I’m a little smarter and wiser than yesterday. I’m a little more aware of my flaws and how to change get them as well as my good qualities and striving to better them even more. I’m more positive about the path I am leading, and even more grateful that my past is behind me. Every day I believe I grow a little more like a flower kissed by dew and sunshine.
Not that I’m comparing myself to a flower. I’m no rose, for sure, but you get my drift.
Today’s me has evolved from my past, but this version of myself won’t recognize me tomorrow. With every sunrise, I change, and hopefully, each time it will be for the better.
