Do You Want to Have A Good Day

October 13, 2021

I recently saw a quote that said “Wakeup thinking something great is going to happen today”.  That quote sounds good.  It evokes excitement for the day and hopefulness.  That’s good, although it can lead to disappointment.

If that’s what you’re thinking when you wakeup, what happens when the day is over and “something great” didn’t  happen?  Then, as you lay your head on the pillow and close your eyes, you won’t feel contented.

What happens if the “something great” that you hoped for doesn’t happen for days and days?  The disappointment might lead to hopelessness, anger…..

We too often think about what we want to get, instead of what we can give

Wakeup with these thoughts to create a truly good day

Wakeup each day by being thankful and grateful. First and foremost be grateful that you woke up. For that means that you have been given more of the most precious non-renewable resource of all—Time! You have been given time because you are needed, your life has purpose and meaning, and you matter. You are given this time to perform a good for one or for many. You are given this time because no one else can perform this specific good except you!  Now that’s exciting!  Next Thought…..

Think that today will be a good day because of all the good you can and will do today

So the secret to having a good day is to make it a good day.  You make it a good day through the good deeds you do.  You make it a good day by making someone else’s day better.  Maybe, what you give of yourself to another is the “something great” for them?  Then, as you lay your head on the pillow and close your eyes, you will feel contented, knowing that you made “something great happen today”!

Be Good Do Good Think Good Be Healthy

    I spend my days fighting for people who can’t fight for themselves. Very rewarding. Thanks for “giving” us this most special message, Fred. I hope you one day will join our super hero team! You are a shoe in!
