It’s a new world, it’s a new start
It’s alive with the beating of young hearts
It’s a new day, it’s a new plan
It is the start of a new year. It’s a time for new beginnings, new dreams, and new goals. As I think about all the new days and new starts that I have had with my horses, I am so glad that horses are so forgiving. I can remember times where I was a terrible trainer; yet, the next day, I had a chance to try again, a chance to try to be better.
That’s what learning is about. It is about making mistakes and learning from them. I don’t know everything and will make mistakes, but I know that each day can be started, without having to make those same mistakes again. I know I can go out there and start over and learn from the past.
Horses are wonderful animals to work with. They can remember so well, but they can also forgive easily. The mistakes that we made yesterday can be overcome today. With each fresh start, each fresh day, we can make the most of what we have learned and do it better. Each year can have a new goal, each week can have a new lesson, and each sunrise can have a new dream.
Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet
~Ann of Green Gables~
So, do not be afraid to make mistakes. But live each day remembering the past.
