Choosing to have a good day

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Good morning Sparklers! I believe it is a good morning. In spite of "dreading" a few things today and in the days to come I have made the choice that it will all be good in some sense. Studies have been done to show how our attitude can affect the outcome of our daily lives. This has been proven true for me on many occasions. Although I am generally inclined to look at the negative, I am learning to see things in a more positive light. This makes for a more relaxed state and peace of mind. Why waste the precious moments we have dwelling on things over which we have no control?

This morning I woke up, and have been completing small tasks left incomplete. I am so grateful that I am able to move about without the chronic pain so many of my acquaintances are burdened.. I am truly blessed in so many ways. Looking at all of the positives in my life such as health, family, and friends help me to realize how insignificant so many things really are. When I begin my day with gratitude the entire day is more manageable.

How you view your day is a choice. I choose to look at the positive aspects and have myself a good day.

    You are so right to look at all the things that are a blessing and have good health to enjoy them.
    I have 'chronic neck pain' and it gets very tiring but I keep going, and those who know me have no
    idea anything is "wrong." … I just plaster the 'ointment' on LOL and keep moving as it does work wonders!
    Best wishes for a great month in October.

    Glad you're choosing to have good days despite challenges. Not easy but sure does help get thru challenges.

    We can control so much and committing to having a good day makes it much more likely we'll have one. My day so far has been great and it can only get better.

    Thank you for a thoughtful posting. Some times it is difficult for me to pick positive.

    Totally agree. I choose every day to be happy with a positive outlook even when negativity (mostly political insanity) threatens. Every day is a Treasure Hunt! Find the JOY in every day activities! Stay Strong & Keep SPARK’n! :-)
