today is a good day to have a good day.

I think that oftentimes joy and happiness are decisions we make. A decision to not let any bad circumstances that may come our way to get us down and prevent us from enjoying the life we have been blessed with.

There are many things and circumstances in my life that make me happy: my husband, my family, friends, my dog, morning coffee, the home we have made for ourselves, yogurt and berries for breakfast, a good book, photographs, sunny weather, etc. All of these things...big and small are blessings from God.

But sometimes something not-so-good happens, or something takes place in a way that is unlike how I would like it to occur. And then I come down with a case of tunnel vision, and all I can see is the negative. I really don't like that. At all.

So I have decided that today is a good day to have a good day. Every day is a good day to have a good day, don't you think? And what is keeping me from having a good day every day? Myself. My own reactions to the situations and circumstances around me.

So, today I decide to change. To not let negative things affect me {sure, I won't ignore them...but I won't magnify them either.} I'm not going to let anything get in the way of celebrating and being thankful for the blessings in my life.

How about you? Are you going to have a good day...even though it's Monday?


  1. Very true Tiffany. I am inspired to have a great day-- and to try to pay the most attention to the great things that each day brings.

  2. I love this! Most Mondays are so boring and not very good but this post inspires me to make my Mondays (and everyday) better days! :)

  3. Thanks, everyone!
