MIAGD: make it a great day
I’ve always found this concept interesting. It’s much like when we are younger, but can’t wait to be older!
- I can’t wait until I’m 9 so I can play on the Little League team
- I can’t wait until I’m in middle school
- I can’t wait to get my driver’s license
- I can’t wait to graduate
When I said these things as a lad, my Grandma Donna would always stress, “Don’t wish your life away.”
Yeh, yeh, yeh… Oh, shit! I’m no longer that lad, and my fifty-second birthday is looming in the distance.
We are all guilty of wishing our lives away, especially, it seems, five days of every week. Yes, some jobs can be monotonous, stressful, and I realize my world is the exception for most folks; however, we each have the choice to be the master of our lives.
What is it we can find in each of the five week days to make them more enjoyable, more joyfully productive?
Develope a positive attitude that searches for, and maintains positivity, and gratitude.
Is it simple? It can be. But, we have to practice it in order to establish it as a natural, common daily experience.
PTP: practice the positive! Make Monday through Friday as exciting, and as meaningful as Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday.
Just. Do. It.
