You Are Not Who You Were Yesterday

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You have lived another day, you have seen another sunrise, you have watched another sunset, you have taken 23,040 breaths. You are still here.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You have had a night full of dreams, or maybe it was restless sleep. You have had hours, minutes, and seconds to recharge. You have been touched by moonbeams when it’s been dark. You have been changed by the night. You have risen this morning.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You have had your heart broken, and yet – you are still standing. You understand that broken pieces are not a death sentence; you will find a way to put yourself back together.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You have held love in your hands, in your arms, in your lips, and on your heart. You know what love means now, and you know how to love too.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You messed up. You made a mistake. You made two. Yesterday you hurt the love you held in your hands – today you will pick the love back up, and you will sew the pieces back together with stronger thread.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You read more stories. You spoke to new people. And when you meet more people, your heart, mind, and soul grow. Those stories and faces stay with you—you carry them with you wherever you go.

You are not who you were yesterday, and that is a beautiful thing. You are another day older today. You have lived on this earth for another twenty-four hours – and that is a gift. To live another day, to grow, to be able to change…it’s a beautiful thing. TC mark
