Another day equals another blessing. When you start to view your days on earth as blessings, and as opportunities, you will begin to treat your days with more respect. Everyone enjoys lazy days, but if we took a lazy day every day, we would be wasting the blessing that was given to us.
You have the opportunity to use each day that is given to you to the best of your ability. Use it to grow mentally, emotionally, spiritually, intellectually, etc. It is your responsibility to get better. You have all of the tools that you need to become the person that you were purposed to be.
Don’t allow another day to pass by without taking some action toward becoming a better version of yourself. Work to be stronger, healthier, and wiser.

All that matters today is how you respond. What happens is never as important as how you respond to it. Set an intention and expectation for the day, and look for things that fit within them throughout your day. With the election results, there are many people who will be putting out negative energy today, but you don’t have to accept it or participate in doing the same.
Be mindful of what you want for yourself at all times. Hold onto you ideas of the life that you want. Dismiss anything that doesn’t cater to creating that life, and show others the way. How you respond to situations and circumstances lets you know how far you have come, and how far you still need to grow. If you find that your response it less than desirable, don’t give up and don’t beat yourself up over it. You are human. You get another chance to get it right.
When you are working on something, especially change, you won’t always get it right on the first try. Love yourself enough to allow mistakes to be made. Forgive yourself, and look forward to responding more positively the next time. Go out into the world today ready to respond with love and understanding!

Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. There are some people who never do anything, because they worry so much about messing up. Conditions very rarely are perfect, so you shouldn’t try to force things to be, or wait until they are.
Many people and entrepreneurs have stepped out, made mistakes, and fumbled around, but they found their ground and are successfully doing what they set out to do with their lives. They say that practice makes perfect, but if you are only going over theory in your head, you are missing out on creating something beautiful. No one has ever created the perfect thing, situation, business, etc. on the first try. The beauty of stepping out there is being able to keep trying and perfecting what you’re doing.
I’m not saying to jump out there unprepared. I’m simply saying that once you have prepared and set a plan in place, you should trust yourself enough to get out there and try something new. Don’t worry about how it will turn out. Most likely, you will immediately realize what things can be fixed and what things can remain as they are. No worries, and no fear. Fear will only keep you bound in a realm of doing nothing.

When good things start to flow into your life, don’t think it strange. This is what your life is supposed to look like. You are supposed to experience the things that you desire. Your life was designed to be great. You began as a seed, and your job is to grow continuously.
Your parents, guardians, caregivers, etc were responsible, only up to a certain point. Now, it’s up to you. If you want to eat junk, you can. If you want to spend all of your free time watching TV, you can. If you want to fade into the background and live simply, you can. If you want to get healthier, read more books, and stand out in your greatness, you can do that too. You decide how much you grow. No one else can do that for you. And if you have decided to grow, and you start to see things happen in your favor, be quick to be grateful about it. Don’t think to yourself, this doesn’t happen to me, so I’m sure it will be short lived, and certainly don’t speak those words out loud.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. You’ve worked for these moments. If you haven’t started experiencing great things flowing into your life just yet, don’t worry. Your time will soon come. It’s inevitable. When you work toward something, you are always moving forward. Eventually, you have to arrive at your desired destination.
Keep working, and looking in expectation, for your blessings.
