Sometimes it is hard to wake up on the right side of the bed and embrace the day with an open heart. Especially after you were at the office until midnight, or up 6 times the night before tending to children, or simply just exhausted from life and trying to keep your head above water. We often have to stop and remind ourselves that we have a lot to be grateful for and that there is almost always someone else who has it way worse.
I challenge you on this beautiful day to see the beauty through the fog. Sometimes we are merely just trying to keep our heads on straight and get to the end of the day so we can fall into bed and start over. Just know that you are not alone. There are plenty of people out there stuck in a rut, having bad years (forget about having a bad day), and simply just trying to survive. Remember that, this too shall pass. Embrace the beauty around you and remember to take a deep breath.
On days you are feeling down in the dumps I challenge you to do one simple act of kindness for a stranger or for your wife/husband or best friend. Bring your co-worker coffee, hold the door for someone, bring flowers home to your roommate/spouse, do something that takes your mind off of yourself and sends positive energy into the world. I promise you that it will brighter your day. Even just a little.
Smile! It is Thursday! We are over the hump and it is a beautiful day to be joyous!
