A New Day Wastes Away

“The Power of the Sun”
Written by Salkis Re
You are depressed because you are preoccupied with thoughts of the past, what you used to be or what was done to you. And the new day your standing in gets no respect at all. This new day is tainted with old thoughts and the sun rises again for you, yet your dwelling mind has given the sunshine a purpose.
So you’ve decided to be depressed. And you have a juicy script to tell anyone that will listen. And you like the attention you get from sharing your anguish, you feel like “somebody” for a little while as people stand entranced by the tales of what your hard luck story.

And this new day just stands here. The sun watches you give reverence to past days, wondering to itself it you notice it shining and the clean slate from the new day it has made for you right now.

“What’s All the Fuss About?”
Painting my Salkis Re

A new day is clean, empty vessel for you to fill with new experiences, joyful experiences so that can one day become your past you enjoy talking about. Whatever it was that has happened to you doesn’t need your energy anymore; what it needs is dissipation, and that can only happen if you shift your focus to the present instead of your past.
The people that have hurt you are not spending every moment thinking about you! They’ve long gone on with their lives and forgiven themselves for any damage they’re aware that they’ve caused you. Some people don’t even know they’ve hurt you as badly as they did, and others aren’t even alive for you to recoup an “I’m sorry” from.
Now what?
They are either dead, don’t care or never knew the pain they caused you and yet you make new stew, a new swill for your stale bread to sop up every forking day as you replay your past over and over again.

And yet the sun rises again for you, watching and listening to you prattle on about yesteryear, wondering why you’re ignoring the clean slate it has given you called “A New Day” and why refuse to make a new script and a new past and a new life!
Start respecting the new day. It needs you to make a life you like living.
