Today is day one.
You’ve just been handed your life in its current state.
Your health, your skills, your relationships, your job, your education, everything.
So looking at your life today, what is it you want to change?
What is it you want to get better at?
What bad habits do you want to break?
What good habits do you want to adopt?
Does your current life accurately reflect your values of today or are you filling your schedule with activities you would no longer choose to do if you had the chance to start over?
Has your life become cluttered with possessions you no longer value as much as you once did or no longer use?
Make a note of your answers to these questions and redirect your aim and attention to what you want to improve in your life even if it means changing direction.
Let go of the things that are simply taking up space and time and no longer serve you.
The more that you incorporate things that you truly value into your life — from knowledge to skills to people to activities — the more value you not only bring to your own life, the more value you bring to the people and places you encounter on a daily basis.
Invest in bettering yourself and the future you. Let your future self look back on the changes you make today and be thankful you made them.
Today is always the first day of the rest of your life.
Today is day one.
