The Best Day Of My Life

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my life, ever! There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did! And because I did I'm going to celebrate!

Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.

I will go through this day with my head held high, and a happy heart.

I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts: the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, the flowers, the birds. Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice.

Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people. I'll make someone smile.  I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know.

Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down.  I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how much they mean to me.

Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me.

I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.

Tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens.  I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.

As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow, I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life. And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child, excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be ......

The Best Day Of My Life!

Of the most excellent, effective, or desirable type or quality

To the highest degree; most

The best angle from which to approach any problem is the try-angle.  

Author Unknown

We all to like to have the best of everything life has to offer.  The best house, the best car, the best appliances on the market,  and even the best dress to wear.

There is a saying that says:  The happiest people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have.  That's me over and over again.

If you're talking quantity, my life doesn't have the best of everything, but if it's quality you're looking for, my life is full of only the best of things.  it’s not about having everything,  it’s about making the best out of what you have, and what is going well in your life, to balance out what may not be going so well.

I call it counting your blessings, or looking on the bright side of life.  

Life is good for those that care about what truly matters.

I don't have the "best" of everything but I do make the best of what I have. Life is too precious to waste it always wanting something better. Blessings

I think I agree with Linda M. And a lot of it is choice. And you can chose to believe that on a daily basest! sandie


I'm going to adopt the TRY-ANGLE approach to problems from now on.
