Do you ever feel like you need something specific to happen before you will declare that the day is good? I used to do that too. Now I decide that every day is a good day.
I long since learned that I can't control everything… but I can control my thoughts and my attitude. Attitude and thoughts are the number one way that you can control your future. Those with a good attitude, who let happy thoughts fill their minds and push out negative ones set the stage for good things to come their way.
Although no one is guaranteed anything in life we are all guaranteed right now. We get to do whatever we want with it. Right now you can choose to be happy. You can focus on all of your sorrows or all of your joys. You can look at life as a challenge you can conquer or you can give up. I hope you never give up.
Having a good attitude is the first step to not only a happy day but a happy life. It's not always easy to be happy. It's not always easy to push out feelings of anxiety and doubt. But ones you decide that you are done with letting negativity into your life it becomes second nature to always look on the bright side of life.
Seriously try it. Smile more and watch the opportunities come your way! Take it one day at a time. Decide today is a good day to have a good day!
