Blank Sheet

Karolina Grabowska/

What do you see in the above photograph?  If you answered, “ a blank sheet of paper,” you’d be right. However, I see something else as well. To me, this blank sheet of paper can be a symbol of so much more. 

Have you ever said that you wanted to change or improve something about your life? Have you ever said that you would start eating healthier or exercising more? Or maybe you’ve said that you will try to be a better mom or a better dad. Have you ever had the intention to do such things but, for whatever reason, just never followed through? If this is true, please realize that you are not alone in this. 

More importantly, please understand that the blank sheet of paper represents opportunity. It represents your future, and, as you can plainly see, it is blank. It signifies that tomorrow is a new day and that you have the ability to write anything you want on this blank sheet—that you can do and change anything you want tomorrow, irrespective of your past. The fact that you have not done something in your past does not mean that you can’t do it in the future. Your past does not dictate your future—you dictate your future.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I hope you enjoyed it and found it informative. If so, please feel free to share it.
