Shape your day..!
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 donít have more money or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive. Today I can lament over all that my parents didnít give me when I was growing up or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born, and that what riches I make is entirely my own effort, my own determination and resilience. 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 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. 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 feel honored because the Lord has provided 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. I get to choose what kind of day I will have! So what are you waiting for, letís see a smile on your face, a change of attitude, a difference in your thoughts, and with a light step and a bounce in your walk, go ahead and shape your day..!
Shape your day
Itís not here to stay
If you laze away
It will just go away..!
