Good morning!  

While my mother and I were chatting recently, she reminded me of something I had done as a little girl. Every once in a while, she would see me stop for a moment and close my eyes as if intently concentrating on something. One day, when I was doing this after lunch, she asked me what I was doing. I informed her that, “My day isn’t going that good, so I am starting it over.” I don’t know where I learned the skill, but it has served me well.
A few years back, I was being interviewed by a Penn State Researcher studying the minds of media entrepreneurs. Toward the end of the interview she asked me, “What keeps you going during the bad days?”  I didn’t pause for a second before responding, “I don’t have bad days.” While there are moments during the day that can be challenging or troubling, very rarely do I let that moment seep into the attitude of the entire day. If my morning is challenging, then come lunchtime I take a moment to clear my mind and “restart my day” anticipating nothing but the best for the afternoon. Surely, there is joy to be found each and every day. If we let a challenging circumstance set the stage for the entire day, we miss that joy and the opportunity of the day at hand.
Your Turn:
When you face a challenging day this week try the technique of “restarting your day.”
Your Affirmation:
Each day brings joy, fulfillment and love.
