“Don’t be fooled by the calendar There are only as many days in the year as you make use of. One man gets only a week’s value out of a year while another man gets a full year’s value out of a week.”
Here we are on the cusp of a new year, and I can imagine these comments being said in homes around the world:
“Wow! The holidays really snuck up on this year! Can you believe how quickly the year went by?”
“It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating the New Year!”
How right Charles Richards is, though, in his analysis of time and the calendar. It truly isn’t the number of days we have that matters, but what we bring and take away from each of those days.
Your Turn: How efficiently did you use your days in the last year? If you had to give yourself a report card for effort, enthusiasm, giving, patience, and hope, what would your grades be? What can you learn from the current year that can make next year a more fulfilled year for you and yours?
Today’s Affirmation: Every day matters, because I choose to make it matter.

And as always, don’t forget to start your day with a heartfelt: “Something great is going to happen today… I can’t wait to see what it is!”
And when ending your day ask yourself: “What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?”
