Make the decision to be excited everyday! Choose to make it a winning day!
Most of our days are pretty ordinary days, unless you are a King or a Queen I guess. (Remember that show “Queen for a Day?”) Although, I would imagine that even the King and Queen have some pretty ordinary days in their lives. It depends upon the perspective that one comes from. What might appear to be extraordinary to one person, is pretty ho-hum for someone else.
Sometimes, the day is a phenomenal experience that goes down in your book of life as one that you will never forget. But let’s face it, most days are like Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, the weekend, and then you start it all over again. I believe that you could make a conscious decision before your feet hit the floor that this WILL be an outstanding day. Even though there is work, errands and the hum drum of life, one could choose to approach each task with the fore thought of being excited to even have the tasks before you. Many may not be so fortunate!
Create a special intention for the task that brings the feeling of well-being and JOY, especially upon completion. Is this easy every day? Definitely not! But it is like any other habit you develop: do it everyday and it becomes solidified in your brain that this is how you do your day. It is easier to have a winning day than it is to fight the inevitable tasks that are a necessary part of reality.
“Let us be lights of hope! Let us maintain a positive outlook on reality.” (Pope Francis)
How will you choose to start your day? Try the new habit for seven days and see how you feel at the end of each day. It is only seven days. What do you have to lose?
