When you consider that it is a collection of days, you can deal with things more clearly as they enter your life. We can look at each day and decide, upon rising in the morning, the direction that day will take. If we awaken and for whatever reason are in a bad mood right out of the chute, it will probably not get much better. It behoves us then to take those first few minutes to turn our thoughts toward something so positive that our day will unfold in that way also. It is not difficult to do but does require a couple of things.
We need to remember how important that this mind work is in our life. We cannot discount it then expect things to work out well. If we forget to do this work, our day is up in the air right at the start. How wonderful is it that we, in essence, actually create our own lives, day at a time, by putting out thoughts out there in a way to ensure a successful life, day a time?
The second thing we need to remember is that it will take some time for us to get into the habit of creating the kinds of days we want to live. These days do not just happen, not for us and not for anyone else. There is a focus on excellence that we need to have. It is a focus that is the result of our thoughts and the attention we give to those thoughts that will get us where we want to go.
Everyone, whether they realize it or not, creates their own life in just this way. You set an intent, you focus on that desire, and you then begin to celebrate your life. You show appreciation for all you have now and let your imagination take you to where you want to end up. As the celebration of life continues in your mind, the Universe is working to drop you desired into your lap. As you create your life, day by day, you may not realize this is happening.
This is what happens and when we are nearing the end of our lives, we will look back (as I am told) and see that we really did have an extraordinary life. When we appreciate each day, when we orchestrate each day successfully, not only will we see that we have an extraordinary life, but we will also see that it is one that we created for ourselves. What a wonderful gift it is.
So, today, begin an assessment of your life. Is it where you want it to be? What changes would you make? Are you appreciating all aspects of your life, exactly as it is? Make a firm pledge to end the day appreciating everything and beginning the day by setting your focus for the day. Then, my friends, go celebrate the day.
