Approaching Each Day
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock
strikes midnight. My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to
Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful
that the grass is getting watered for free.
Today I can feel sad that I don’t have more money or I can be glad that
my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away
Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.
Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was
growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.
Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that
thorns have roses.
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a
quest to discover new job relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy
because I have a job to go to!
Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my
mind and fill it with knowledge and adventure.
Today I can dejectedly murmur because I have housework to do or I can
feel grateful for shelter for my mind, body and soul.
Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped, and here I am, the
sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to
me. And I shall decide what kind of day I shall have!”
