Every new day, I am looking forward to having a happy day. Happiness is one of the most important elements in my life. If I am happy, every problem will be sorted finally; if I am happy, I will enjoy the life more; if I am happy; the others will be happy too.

Madona1, you have such a nice disposition in life! Yes, happiness is important and one can only be happy when one is at peace with everybody. It is so nice to meet a happy person, exuding something inside of himself/herself, and touching others too. A blessed day for you!

i am the same feeling with you.I am up to my work all day and seem to get mad if i couldnt get myself some good rest.Like what you said,go for a countryside is not a bad choice.Breathe in some fresh air,walk and run wild in the spacious green fields and lie down on the grass is a good enjoyment and entertainment for us.All work and no play makes jack a dull boy.

Every day is different, but I think I start every day with hope. I hope it'll be a good day. I hope good things will happen. Sounds like you and I both start each day with hope? :)

I agree with you. There is nothing better than a better day than yesterday. I would probably say I look forward to an easy day at work without any problems and my students will behave, and won't give me too much trouble.

I always look forward to an early morning and being out of the house at the brake of daylight, it makes me feel alive and its so quiet it helps me relax. I also look forward to the simple things though, talking with friends and even just checking my email gives me a smile.

I look forward to a great sunny day and go outside and run in the green fields filled with beautiful plants and fresh air. But really, I just look forward to a brand new day and doing the same thing everyday going to a job.

Well, I guess this is really a good question for me to answer...I always look forward to each new day because each dawn of the day means a new life towards my dreams in life... I believe that each day is really a new beginning- another chance to learn more about myself, to care more about others especially to the people who are kind and nice to me (friends and family), to laugh and enjoy more (to be happy), to accomplish more than I thought I could (to do things that are in my responsibilities and accountabilities and be disciplined in performing and accomplishing tasks), and to be more than I was before (each day is an opportunity to learn...learn from experiences and mistakes because I believe that mistakes are just opportunities of learning something new!!!) Each day is a gift given by God to discover the treasures of life.

Thanks for your appreciation...In my life, I just need to stay strong and be optimistic at all times. I know this is the best way to overcome trials,circumstances or problems, right? It's really great when your life is driven by a purpose, isn't it?

yes, that is the best way to be. whenever i've been having difficulties or challenges, it helps to remember that "this too shall pass". and it also helps to stay focused and look at the brighter side of things. :)

I would probably look forward to a new beginning. That includes new learnings, new experience, new friends, new challenges, etc. Each morning I wake up, I always thank GOD for giving me another opportunity to live and enjoy life. I treat each morning as miracle co'z we'll never know what's in store for us and up to when our life on earth be.

That is a nice post you opened here. It is like you given me a chance to imagine a new day while talking about it. Twice in one day. Lol. When i start a new day, i just want to be relaxed. To go outside, to mell the smell of the beautiful spring and all the blooming, to keep on smiling. I do believe that i am looking forward to continuing the day as i started it. Not get mad or annoyed by people or idiotic things, just to stay happy.

yes, just like in the FISH Philosophy. There's one principle there that says... "Choose your attitude." if we do choose to start the day and end it happy, we can be... no matter what happened during the entire day. ;)

Honestly during weekdays and I do have to go to the workplace to do my job, I look forward to finishing all the paperwork I have to do. Aside from this, I also wish and try to declutter my office table which is admittedly, very much crowded more specially during submission of reports with target deadlines. But during weekends, I look forward to spending quality time with my own family particularly playing and singing along with our daughter who is presently three years of age. And I guess I couldn't put off cleaning the house of dust and some clutter here and there; along with doing the laundry. As a married working mom, I have to juggle a lot of activities and tasks and balance office with personal family life. Frankly, I'm quite bored with having to go to the office to work. I prefer having my own lawful business together with my husband and in the future, our daughter could continue it and make it prosperous. This way, I wouldn't have to travel regularly and be away from my family, which also means quality time and less transportation expenses.

That is an interesting question. I guess I don't really think about it unless it is a special day that I have something planned. Otherwise, if normal day, I think I just look forward to finishing day so I can come home and relax. On the weekends I look forward to spending quality time with my family each day.

Every morning, I start my day with the Morning Prayer to thank God for the new day, to pray for a lot of people in my list starting from my family, the Church, the government, the needy people specially those who are sick terminally like my friend who had a kidney transplant recently and who needs 50,000 pesos to be able to recover from that transplant operation. I find that with prayer to start with, everything else that will happen during the day can be enjoyable and as you say less stressful.
