Good day

Leave a comment

I say that (Good Day) in the form of a greeting. And in a sense that I hope everyone has had a good day. Can you image that? If everyone had a good day. Think of the possibilities. How would it change the perspective to have more good stuff than bad happening in your life? How would it change people and open their minds? How would it inspire and motivate everyone towards the next day?

I learn the more I focus on having a good day the more it tends to be one, the mindset of trying to do better and at the same time being satisfied with the position of life. There will always be some bad sprinkled in. Like the last few days with pain, but overall they have been wonderful days. Because I looked beyond that and accomplished much while a bit less than 100%.

Each day is like a wave. Some are good ones, some are weak. But riding them and having the anticipation for the next one is always the way to think.

On a site I follow, their question of the day was –

What’s the first thing you do every single morning after you wake up?

My answer was – I smile for a minute or two because I’m thankful to have another day. or I curse the pain for a minute or two and then smile because I’m thankful to have another day.

Life goes by in the blink of an eye. Enjoy each day like a glass of cold ice tea or lemonade on a hot summer day.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m beginning to think Pringles are made with heroin. I can’t think of anything more addictive than that can of pressed potato chips. Well, maybe one other thing.
  • Saying a prayer for someone who has I’m sure said more prayers for others than I could ever say even if I did it 24 hours a day till I pass. For she is deserving of one for her recovery tomorrow.
  • I also am thinking of my daughter and daughter-in-law who return to the classrooms filled with students next week. I’m looking forward to their stories. We should value teachers. Not just because I have two of them, its because the role and job they do in it that is so important. They show caring, they generate excitement in learning, they teach social interaction and set standards. They teach limits and at the same time inspire greatness. Not to mention all the book stuff they teach.
  • OK, I promise no old photos tomorrow. Even if it means shooting on a cloudy and rainy day.
