Life is not always what one wants it to be, but to make it the best of it as it is, is the only way of being happy.
—Jennie Jerome Churchill—
The posture we take while preforming our tasks today, and the attitude we project toward those who cross our path, will emphatically influence what the day brings. No one else can decide for any one of us what we’ll feel or think about the day. We have the power to be as content or as discontent as we make up our minds to be.
A sign of maturity is acceptance of the full responsibility for the failures as well as the successes of the day. Another is a willingness to let go of the day’s outcomes, whatever they are, and ready ourselves to face tomorrow, confident and hopeful. Carrying yesterday’s baggage into today will only distort the size and shape of any bundle we must handle in the twenty-four hours ahead.
I begin the day free of yesterday, unburdened, hopeful, cheerful, confident, if I so choose.
