Wake up, wake up, wake up
Its a brand new day
Ye Wake up we got everything to give today
This is a new alarm tone for me. I bought new mobile and this was the default setting. I woke up in initial few days. After a couple of days I got used to and snoozed often. A common phenomenon! Once as usual when I snoozed the sound and heard again after 10 minutes, I listened to the wordings. It was interesting.
I heard it again and felt good – “…wake up you have got EVERYTHING to give today…”
What made this small thing tick was – we have got EVERYTHING to give today. That’s right, whatever we can do today (any day) is what we have. I started thinking that this is true “a BRAND NEW DAY comes every day” and we always are gifted with EVERYTHING to give today.
At the same time, I knew that the New year was just a couple of days away. We would write our new year resolution such as joining Gym and getting in shape. Gym requires a lot of determination. Some of us would diligently follow it however many would follow it for say five days and would be back to the “normal routine”, as I did with my new alarm. I have witnessed this story with many. I bet – you see Gym registration in the month of Jan every year and see what is the drop out rate, you should not be surprised! Percentage drop out rate in Jan would be far higher. Anyways that is one reality which we all are struggling with. I asked myself. Wake up! Really I jumped out of the bed. This time around with a resolve to get up.
That’s when I started questioning why should we wait till the new year? It is always a new day and we have everything to make it the best day. I remembered a Hindi saying – “Jab jago tab savera” that is – “whenever you wake up it is a morning.” Take an example of India or Middle East. Middle East saw uprising some time back and Indian citizen are waking up for better law and order situation, removal of corruption.
So wake up! whether it is new year or not! You have EVERYTHING you need to make it a great day EVERY DAY!
Wish you a Very Happy New Year 2013!
