Week 18 – Your Best Day Yet

Your Best Day Yet

Make today your best day yet. Except for “lesson’s learned”, forget about yesterday, it’s gone; there is no “re-do”. Don’t live for tomorrow. It may not come. Today is the day that counts…right here…right now. Get up early with a smile on your face. You woke up today!

Don't Wait

If you have a job, go do it graciously and be positive but skip the overtime. Spend that time taking steps toward your dreams instead of someone else’s. Enjoy your family. Enjoy your friends. You have a life! Go live it!

If you don’t have to work, go help somebody who’s less fortunate. Go do something nice without getting caught…just because. Spend time with family and friends. Do something that makes you happy. And again…spend time taking steps toward your dreams. Stop procrastinating!

Put down that cell phone for a while! Turn off that TV! Step away from the computer. Facebook will be there when you get back. Read a book. Go out with family and friends. And when you’re with them, make it about them. Spend quality time. Show love. Show respect. Build relationships.

Let the people that are important in your life know it…today. Make this your best day yet. As Og says, “I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall to my knees and give thanks.”

    Shirley, what a great post and the video hammered it home, I truly mean hammered. There are music artists who match our thoughts with their elegant words; I find country music cuts through the pretty words and lays it all out there like this one does.

    Your post and this tune will in my head today leading me to be a better man than I took the time to be in days past… Thank you

    Once again, you’ve nailed it, Shirley. I’ve always loved that song. This week, I’ve been consciously looking for the kindnesses I knew my husband has been performing for me, and today, I’d noticed two before we were done with breakfast.

    We’re not even guaranteed today, but this moment we’re in right now, is ours!
