You can start a day over as many times as you want. That doesn’t sound true, so you have to try it and see for yourself.
Yesterday I ruined the whole morning and most of the afternoon, whining and trudging as if life were one big chore. But then I remembered that I could choose to reboot. So I did.
I gave myself permission to start over. I chose to act-as-if five o’clock in the afternoon were five o’clock in the morning. I chose to act-as-if I weren’t impatient and out of sorts and discouraged. At first it felt tense and wobbly, like riding a bike with training wheels, but after a while I got my balance and started enjoying the ride. I even took my hands off the handlebars a few times.
“[T]hat your joy may abound and overflow.” John 15:11
