Make This Your Special Day

Make This Your Special Day

Are you greeting this day with high energy, fresh from pleasurable dreams and a good night’s sleep?

You will figure this day out….just like you’ve figured out all the days of your life so far.

And, with a bit of good fortune, you may even find perfection in whatever comes your way today.

How do I know this?

Because I have lived so many days, woken up on so many sides of beds, and figured out so many things.

Even on the worst of days.

And the good news is this: I have survived them all. On some days I’ve even thrived!

Was just fine, relaxed and refreshed ... until I crawled out of bed and into this crapped-up world in which I live. Then spent the rest of the day sorting through and looking for meaning, value, and the how-to needed to make it happen.

Now I'm exhausted and going back to bed with a game plan for tomorrow's next round of possibilities. Life lessons are good.
