“Have A Great Day”

March 2, 2017

People often say to another, “Have a Great Day”.

What makes a great day?  How do you insure that you will have a great day?

Here is a Prescription

First, immediately upon awakening, begin with an acknowledgement of thankfulness and gratitude for being given another day.  That you were given more time, means you are still needed and hence valuable.

Then make your list of the things you need to do to continue to make progress towards your goals and dreams.  The things that will keep you climbing your mountain and getting closer to being the person you are meant to be and can be. 

Make another list of the routine things that you need and wish to get done.

Then start doing

At bedtime, once again state your gratitude for having the day.  Then go over the lists to see what you are able to check off.

If, after the checking off, you are disappointed that you didn’t accomplish as much as you hoped or planned to, don’t let it get you down.  That you didn’t accomplish all that you planned, does not mean it wasn’t a great day.

No matter how much you accomplished or didn’t, the one certain way to have a great day is to give some charity and be of service to another, every day.  If you did that, then it was a great day.

So the secret to having a great day is to make it a great day.  You make it a great day through good deeds and charity!!  You make it a great day by making someone else’s day better.

The next time someone says to you “Have a great day”, respond by saying “I will make it one”.

Have A Great Day!

Heart and Soul

    Thanks for this Fred.

    Each day when I awaken, I say to myself…

    “Today is the first day of the rest of my life”.

    Great days of course are in the soul of the actor, like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. A meaningful takeaway from the post is how being of service is commonly productive, and that can range from the seemingly mundane, like allowing a car on the highway to enter your lane unimpeded, to the deeply impactful, like volunteer work. In all cases, you are contributing to the greatness of your day, as well as that of others.

      Very well said. It could be as seemingly small as a smile, or actually listening when you ask someone “How are You?”
      Ultimately, everyone wants to know that they matter. You matter when you make someone else feel that they matter
