Within any given week we are going to have good days, and bad ones. Rarely is an entire week perfect…at least I’ve never had a week like that myself. There are up days, and down days…there are stressful days and fun days…there are monotonous tasks that have to get done and there are new and exciting things we can’t wait to do…and all of those things often happen within any seven day period we call a week.
I don’t know what that has been on my mind today. It wasn’t that today was a particularly bad day, but there were definitely the fair share of frustrations and annoyances and it certainly was as amazing of a day as yesterday was, but it also could have been far worse. And then I realized…yeah, that is life…a big blend of ups and downs and goods and bads…
I think that is why the opening quote caught my attention today:
“Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”
Because no matter how many days may be bad, or just not as good as they could have been, there is ALWAYS something good in every single day to be grateful for and to appreciate.
It may be something as simple as waking up to see the sun shining. Or it may be something as amazing as being able to stand and walk and see and feel. Or perhaps it’s seeing the smile of a dear friend or laughing on the phone with someone you haven’t talked to in a while. It may be a favorite meal or having a meal to eat at all. There is something good in every day. It’s just our job to recognize that and be grateful for that and appreciate its significance in our date.
For me today it was having a trusted friend I could reach out to for some advice. In just a few short minutes this friend was able to share wisdom that helped me tremendously. When we hung up the phone my spirit was lifted and it hit me how blessed I am to have such incredible friends in my life. So it’s really true…every day may not be awesome, but there is something awesome to appreciate in every day we have.
Recognize the good today.
