4.6( 8864)


I woke up early today, excited about all that I'll do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have important responsibilities to fulfill today.
My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy,
but I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel that I don't have more money,
Or I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health,
Or I can rejoice that I can be alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents did not give me when I was growing up, Or I can be grateful that allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry, because roses have thorns,
Or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends,
Or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today I can whine because I have to go to school,
Or eagerly open my mind and fill it with new tidbits of knowledge.

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have do housework,
Or I can be honoured, because God has provided shelter for my mind,
body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped,
And here I am the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
What today will be like is up to me.
I get to chose what kind of day I will have.
