A Fresh Start (#336)

Every day is a new chance to get started. Each sunrise brings new color and opportunity to our lives. A chance to grow and to learn. Not every day will be our best day but that’s to be expected. At the same time, life is full of awesome surprises and incredible moments worth living. It’s up to us how we choose to make the most of each fresh start.

Will you redefine yourself today?

Will you find new ways to step outside your comfort zone?

Will you nail down a routine that helps you accomplish your goals?

Will you overcome a lifelong fear?

Will you share gratitude with the people you love?

It’s all up to you and there’s no wrong answer.
