I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes
midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
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 from
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
Today I can mourn my lack of friends or … I can excitedly embark upon a
quest to discover new relationships.
Today I can whine because I have to go to work or … I can shout for joy
because I have a job to do.
Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind
and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can
appreciate that I have a place to call home.
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. I get to choose what kind of day I will
Have a GREAT DAY … unless you have other plans.
