Today I am so very grateful for messes. I am grateful they exist so I can clean them up! Silly I know. When I clean up a physical mess it gives me hope that I can clean up any physical or emotional mess that comes a long. I however can't always clean up my messes but luckily I have a wonderful Heavenly Elder Brother who made sure he could clean up my messes. It's not always easy to let Him do that . It's hard to admit that you can't do everything. It's hard to say you aren't strong enough but when you allow Him to help you are made strong enough.
I am also grateful for new beginnings. I am grateful that each second offers a new beginning. I like fresh clean surfaces and slates. I like to reorganize my room when I feel like my life is a disaster. I like to re-plan my entire life when I feel sad or discouraged. I usually think that the next day or the next step in my life will bring the feelings and the joys that I want now. I think the right changes and improvements will occur when the new day begins or the new chapter. But I realized that each second offers that clean slate, each second offers that chance to grow and improve right them and there. You don't have to wait until the next day or the next year, you have that very second. So in a day we have 86,400 opportunities to improve.
86,400 times to try again.
