I chose different as my word today to remind myself that I only I have the power to change my outlook on today. I woke up TIRED due to insomnia last night. I drove to work in a bunch of traffic and grouchy. The sky is dark and gloomy thanks to a rain storm that just wont do it’s thing and move on. I have all the makings for a crap day.
Right now I have a choice to make. I can either feel like this the rest of the day and waste one day of my life being miserable or I can choose to make my day different. I am choosing to make this day different. There are so many people out there that are faced with far more challenges than I ever will have to face and some of them would give anything to have an extra 24 hours. In honor of those people I am going to make today different and attempt to change the way I feel about today. I don’t want to waste today.
My first step is a deep breath and then a smile. The smile is more to make other people wonder what I am up to but it also takes more muscles to smile than frown, so why not workout more muscles in the process!
