Celebrate the me yet to come
“I sing the body electric. I celebrate the me yet to come. I toast to my own reunion. Till I become one with the sun”. If you know those words, they come from the Movie Fame and one of the closing numbers of the movie. If you haven’t seen the movie, try and find the song on YouTube. There is something electric about it that seems to fill your soul with hope and joy.
One of the things that I love most about mornings is I get to start my life over every single day. The trials and tribulations of the past are behind me and I feel like I can get up with a renewed energy to face what ever may be coming my way on that particular day. Old and new hopes and dreams are still right there in front of me waiting to happen and all the work I do in those next day’s hours drive me to achieve them. Each and every morning is an opportunity to celebrate the “me yet to come”.
It is very difficult to avoid having the past seep into your plans for the future and hinder the successful realization of the dreams that you desire. Past failures plant seeds of doubt that tend to raise their ugly heads just at the time when you feel like you have gotten to the point where you can move on. Recognizing those times at the moment they come into our minds and then letting them go is incredibly important to clearing the way for our future ambitions.
Do you ever have those days where you wake up after a good nights sleep and feel like you can conquer the world? You have the motivation to aspire to greatness in a life that has already been good to you, because you know that you can do more. It is those moments that we need to harness to get us through the times when the motivation isn’t so great. Not every day provides the same level of exuberance that particular day might offer, but every day does provide a clean slate for us to make it anything that we want it to be.
Sometimes, I do feel like I want to conquer the world. I want to make life better for every senior that we can touch through the Bring Smiles to Seniors program. I want every senior to never be lonely again and to know that they are loved, not forgotten and remind them that they still matter. I know we can only do it one smile at a time, but we can do it and we do. Enriching my life enriches theirs and so many others in return.
When you read this post this morning, take a moment to “celebrate the me yet to come”. Focus on why you are here, what your purpose is and no matter what life has sent your way that you are stronger than anything life can throw at you. Toast you for the person you are and the person you will become. We all deserve the greatest life that we can possibly have.
Have a great day and remember to be the reason YOU and someone else smiles.
