Make today better than yesterday and tomorrow better than today!
Everyday you have a choice when you wake up…I tell my kids this all the time…you can wake up and say to yourself, “Oh, what a day!” with love, cheer and hope or you can wake up, saying those same words, “Oh, what a day!” and have the complete opposite meaning ~ grumbly, sad, and depressed. And your day will follow your thoughts.
I am not always bright and cheery, although I do try to be much of the time. I try to see the good, but sometimes, I take off my rose-colored glasses and assess life and I don’t always like what I see. However, I have found that even though I don’t like it, it’s good for me to do because it gives me a chance to realign myself and get back to the basics that I may have let slide.
Until a few years ago, I believed I was responsible for everyone’s happiness. I’ve come to realize that we are all responsible for our happiness ~ and for me, it’s not a ‘when I get a new house’ or ‘when I win the lottery’ or ‘when I am married’ or ‘when the kids are grown up and out of the house’ type of happiness that I am searching for ~ it’s that I’m happy today where I am type of happiness that I’ve embraced and I enjoy.
I know I am blessed to be where I am at this stage in my life ~ and my gift is that I am happy with my life. Are there tweaks which I wish to make to it to make it better? Absolutely. But I can say without a doubt, I am happy today…at this moment…and today is better than yesterday ~ and tomorrow will be better than today…baby steps!
Be happy today.
It’s a choice you make…make the one that makes you happy!
