#1wordwednesday / day {ONE} of the rest of my life

the daily Starr blog Starr haigler 8

BLOG update: if you haven’t noticed, I’ve been sending Wednesday alerts earlier in hopes that you could use today’s blog as a conversation starter around your dinner table. If you’re like me, you struggle with having intentional conversations without asking the same old questions – “How was your day, blah blah blah.” Brian and I also have to be intentional to not constantly talk about work. Is 6pm a good time to send? I’d love your feedback. If you’ve already eaten dinner, maybe use the questions at the end of the post tomorrow.

I wish I wasn’t wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody’s keeping score
I’m tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something
Here goes nothin’

It’s day {ONE} of the rest of my life
It’s day {ONE} of the best of my life
I’m marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day {ONE}

That dream. You know the one. It keeps you awake at night. It consumes your thoughts. If only money wasn’t an option. If obstacles weren’t in the way. If you could quit work and just do THAT.

That thing you think about doing someday…

See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin’
And I’m so sick and tired of missing out

Guess what? Today is day {ONE} of the rest of your life. Get started. No one else can do that. Just you.

The sun came up this morning and the clock started over.

Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy’s new
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, I will fix my eyes on You
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy’s new
Every morning, every morning
Sun’s coming up, the beginning has begun

Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love,
for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.

Psalm 148:3

The rest of your life starts now.

The BEST of your life starts now.

No more looking back at the past.

It’s not too late and you’re not too young or too old. Stop believing those lies.

Today is for starting over.

Today is day {ONE}.

Lyrics from Matthew West – Day One.

Sharing your dreams with friends and family gives you the accountability and encouragement to act. How about joining together with your people around the table this week and have intentional conversations around starting something new today – day {ONE}.

  • What is a dream you’d like to pursue in the next year?
  • If you could quit your job (or school) today, what would you do next?
  • If getting paid weren’t an object, what would you do with your time everyday? How can you incorporate that into your everyday life?
  • What steps can you take in the next week, month, and year to get closer to your goal?
  • IMPORTANT: Write your goals down and post them somewhere you’ll see them often.
  • Ask a friend or family member to check in with you regularly on your goals.
