I hope your Labor Day Weekend was fun, and I hope that Tuesday has been a good one for ya. It always throws me off when there is a holiday that's on a Monday. Tomorrow is already mid-week! That's pretty crazy. What's also crazy is that this day is now coming to a close! It's 10PM. Is time going faster these days?! I swear it is...
Flashback to this morning when I woke up: I took a few moments to observe the rising sun. Granted, I must admit that after a wild weekend in Las Vegas with some of my best friends, I'm still recovering some-what! So, while I was certainly a bit groggy and my eyes were having a tough time adjusting, I kept watching the sunlight hitting the palm trees in Hollywood, and illuminating Runyon Canyon. I can see these things from my apartment, which is incredible! I also recently noticed that I can see the iconic "Capitol Records" building from my apartment, too! (It only took me 6 years to figure that one out.) Haha.
Anyway, as I was watching the sun come up I made a concentrated effort to look around and appreciate what was in my view. Whenever we wake up to the gift of a new day, I believe that it is important to acknowledge the gift. The mere fact that we're all here just floating around on our planet never ceases to blow my mind.
After feeling refreshed for the new day, I went straight to work on writing articles for acting.about.com - which I love to do! - and I visited with some of my friends at the location where I write! In fact, if you'd like to see how a typical day at the office looks, click here to watch my new YouTube video! (I'll also attach it below this blog. And yes, Benice did accompany me today!)
Friends, every single day brings with it many gifts, and sometimes all it takes is a few moments to appreciate them.
When you wake up in the morning, before rushing off to school or work, simply aim to watch the sunrise and feel happy that you're able to do so. I can almost guarantee you'll feel good and ready to take on the day! (Don't look directly at the sun obviously as it is bad for your eyes haha.)
So, assuming that the sun does rise tomorrow (c'mon sun rise, rise!! lol), the gift of a new day will be all yours. What will you do with it?
