Designing Your Day

Make each day...your masterpiece!
John Wooden

Each day is a gift  -- to be enjoyed, savored, and cherished!  We are not receiving this gift fully if we are just trying to get through the day, instead of enjoying it. Yes there are exceptions, but overall, we must be savoring them.  If we are not, then something is wrong.

Each morning before we even get out of bed, we should take a few minutes to "design" our day.  We should start our day with thanks and gratitude for all that is right in our lives -- that we woke up healthy to see another beautiful day, for all our family members, etc.  Each morning before I get up, I also take a few minutes to design my day.  I think about what I want to get accomplished, and what types of things I can do to make the best of the gift I've been given.  I do this not only for myself, but for my kids who are out of school for the summer. 

Setting your intentions for the day helps you shape the kind of day you want to have.  If you are not intentionally designing your day, you end up having a day in which you are responding to things.  This makes a world of difference!  

Thought of the Day:  Do you need to start taking a few minutes each morning to "shape" your day?  Remember, great days always start with thanks and gratitude.  We can design our days the same way an artist would design any great work of art.  Our days -- each and every one, should never be anything less!

Have a great day!
