THE BRIGHT SPOT ON A DARK DAY

Today is a remarkable day. It has been said that this is the first day of the rest of your life. Today is the very last day exactly like it, so make it a good one. It is the last day you can see the very same sunset. It is the last day you can experience anything quite like you experience it in this sliver of time. That being said, you can look up into the spring night sky tonight and every night for a reminder to look for the bright spots on any given dark day. The planet Venus, the second planet from the sun, was the brightest planet in the sky in March and has been super bright all 2020. Some people with excellent vision can even see Venus in the day time sky. Tonight, however, is very special. It is the last day exactly like it, as Venus is at its brightest and brilliance of the year tonight (smithsonianmag.com).

“My best friend gave me the best advice
He said each day’s a gift and not a given right
Leave no stone unturned, leave your fears behind
And try to take the path less traveled by
That first step you take is the longest stride…

….If today was your last day
Would you make your mark by mending a broken heart?
You know it’s never too late to shoot for the stars
Regardless of who you are
So do whatever it takes
Cause you can’t rewind a moment in this life
Let nothin’ stand in your way
Cause the hands of time are never on your side…”

-“If Today Was Your Last Day” song by Nickelback

Enjoy the ALL the moments today and be on the look out for that bright spot on any given day. Shoot for the stars. See each day as a gift. Carpe Diem, friends……………
