Media of the Week - More and Uncharted

Pin It Life is not merely the sum of our bad and less-than-good decisions; often it can seem this way, can't it? But I'm here to tell you that it isn't...there is given to us a limitless amount of opportunity to start anew with the rising of the sun each and every day. In fact, a good friend recently reminded me of a quote I absolutely love by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Remember, you are always more than your mistakes.



So now, go and get dressed, find your song, watch the sun rise, and don't miss the opportunity to make a difference in the life of somebody else.

Tomorrow is yet to bet written, it is - as of yet - uncharted...



...and so are you.

I love that quote. When a day is done and I feel like I lost big time, I can't wait for the next day because I know I will kick butt.

I think I liked the Sarah Ballise song a little better than the other, but they were both good.

Thanks for the late night cry. :)

I REALLY love that quote. Tenth Avenue North is new to me but I'm really loving them too! :)

Loved the Tenth Avenue North song....will definitely have to download that one.

Being depressed and thinking of past hurts and shames really doesn't help anyone, and it totally stinks to find yourself sinking into them, like I did last night. Thank you for posting this, I really needed it.

Great quotes. Great message.

Love the choices!

Karen Peterson said...

It's a good reminder not to worry about the things we can't change. I'm notorious for that.

And I love that Emerson quote.

Spencer said...

Thanks for this, I am always trying to fix things from days before (generally something I said that if I would just leave alone would be forgotten) ;-) I love that Emerson quote, I don't remember hearing it before.

Sarah said...

LOVED the quote and the first song - I hadn't heard it before.

I watched Sara Bareilles perform that song live and it literally brought tears to my eyes when I heard it again, I LOVE her music!
