Reasons either way

On most days, there are plenty of reasons to be down about something.

There’s no dearth of depressing news – something messed up is happening somewhere. There’s probably someone at work who’d rather not have you around. There’s that friend or family member who is busy stirring up unnecessary trouble.

Any one of these things can linger. A cocktail of these mixed with some unexpected bad luck can easily ruin a day.

The opposite is also true of course.

There’s positive news – progress is often being made on the things that matter. There are folks at work who adore you. And, there are family members and friend who are grateful for your presence. There’s also that beautiful flower that just bloomed nearby and the smell of that fresh grass that’s intoxicating. And, lest we forget, those special hugs from those we live with.

We wake up every day with the ability to choose where we want to direct our attention. So, our day is whatever we make of it.

Let’s make it worthwhile.
