Daily Meditation: The First Day Of The Rest Of Your Life

We all need help maintaining our personal spiritual practice. We hope that these Daily Meditations, prayers and mindful awareness exercises can be part of bringing spirituality alive in your life.

Today's meditation features a song by Welsh singer Jem. "Finally Woken" reminds us to awaken with a smile, seeing the possibility laid out before us. Share it with a friend who could use some inspiration today.

Finally Woken by Jem

I've been thinking about things
For a long while
I'm feeling so calm
I've got a big smile
I have a view of the sun
Right over the sea
And now I can feel
Life is flowing through me

You see I've finally woken
From a long sleep
I'm ready to jump
To make that blind leap
'Cause I now believe
I have the power in me
I've got the faith baby
I can truly be free

Finally woken
Finally woken

Child don't worry it's ok
The sun is out for another day
And I say it'll be alright
(be alright)
Today's the first day of the
Rest of your life
Remember, remember,
Remember this, remember

Child don't worry it's ok
(I've got a big smile/I feel good)
The sun is out for another day
(someone's shining on me)
And I say it'll be alright
(be alright)
Today's the first day of the
Rest of your life
Remember remember
Remember this remember

Child don't worry it's ok
The sun is out for another day
Today's the first day of the
Rest of your life
And I say it'll be alright
(be alright)
Remember, remember,
Remember this, remember

Finally woken
(I've got a big smile/I feel good)
Finally woken
(someone's shining on me)
Finally woken
(I've got a big smile/I feel good)
Finally woken
(someone's shining on me)
And I say it'll be alright, be alright
And I say it'll be alright, be alright
