Is It Morning?

It is morning,

really morning,
or is it just
another day?
A new beginning
or just a continuing yesterday?
How I wish for morning:
a light soft
and bleaching a night’s pain.
A new beginning,
a new day.
But I fear morning’s no longer with me.
Beginnings rarely seek me out-
I am too much with middles.

-Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro

How do you view your day?  Are you an eternal planner always anticipating the next move? Or, perhaps you have that live in the moment attitude.  Which ever description fits you best.  The fact is, we all have an opportunity for a new beginning.  J.R.R. Tolkien tells us "All we have to decide is what to do with the time given to us." 
So, how did you start your day?
