TODAY I CHOOSE TO... Start this discussion just to empty my head a little without expecting responses.I just feel i need to put this down. Each day is a new beginning! Each morning when i open my eyes to another day, i do my best to fill my mind with huge hopes that TODAY WOULD BE BETTER THAN YESTERDAY.There are colorful and rainbow days, there are blue days, and red and yellow and green days.Describing them in detail would be endless. BUT TODAY.. I CHOOSE it to be a HAPPY day, A RAINBOW COLORED DAY!:))) Bottomline :: I choose today to be happy. happy-- that me and my family are healthy and together.That anything coming our way can always be worked out on. That despite the hardships around us--there are still so much to be thankful for : our jobs,our payslips,our good health, the food on our table,the unexpected and countless favors we receive,the air that we breathe,the clean water we drink and take a bath with ,the househelp,the internet,the music and the friends! the list just goes on and on and on--because i choose to. And who knows? Today can even be one of the best days of my life.. HOW ABOUT YOU? HOW DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR DAY TODAY WOULD BE?

He finished it early and went out with the guys.SO unfortunately my plans for the day has been broken. Yes I am kinda dissapointed haha. but then again he needs time with the guys too.

Everyday that I open my eyes I start by thanking God that he has allowed me another day. I promise that I will not take this day for granted and that I will cherish all that life has to offer in today, good, bad or indifferent. I promise that I will seize every opportunity that is bestowed upon me and not take for granted that I will get the opportunity again. I start every day hoping that I can make a difference. A difference in my life, in a strangers life, in a childs life. Acknowledging that every day I wont accomplish this, but my intent is there. I try everyday to be the best mother, the best sister, the best friend and the best advocate for life that I can be. I promise to celebrate everyday like yesterday is forever gone and tomorrow is not promised, so this very day is all that I have. How could I be anything but Happy in it?

Good choice. I hope your day was indeed happy. Even if things look bad, if you choose to look on the positive side, choose to be happy, find the good in things, then you will automatically have a better day, be better off then if you choose to just drown yourself in desperation and depression that a bad situation might cause.

I feel the same things that you just described when I wake up. Every day that I wake up I think positive thoughts. I start thinking about all the things that I am going to accomplish on that day. And I am grateful for everything that I have even though my family is going through a rought time. I choose that today my day will be wonderful and it was wonderful today. I was able to do most of the things that were on my to do list. I was able to revise and submit an article to Associated Content, I helped my mother clean the house. The day isn't over yet and there are still many more things to do and I know that I'll get most of them done if I set my mind to them. Tomorrow will be yet another wonderful day. A day in which I will also get many things accomplish.

Hurmmm.. you are quite philosophical. Today i choose for it to prepare for my future days. I want it to be happy I want it to be colourful but i know i cant be happy until i solve all of my problems so today I will be trying to solve all my problems so that I could be happier the day after. I will also try to learn more new things.

Hi Mommyscribbles, I like to start my day like you do - to think this is another day to start it right, feel good about one self, to do little right things, not to think to much of tomorrow and appreciate what I have and be thankful to all my blessings.
