Occasionally I have those days where I’m simply doing life. Yesterday, for some reason, I was simply in survivor mode. Just taking care of what I needed to take care of. It’s on those days that I get more negative than normal, and my sarcasm bites a little bit more. I’m not sure exactly how to get out of those “funks” once I’m in it, but I have realized that I don’t want to live my life there.
I want to live intentionally. I want to enjoy life, not merely survive it.
Today I have the chance to change. I have a chance to live differently, more purposefully. Today will be an awesome day, not because of what happens, but rather because of how I approach it. Today I have the opportunity to grow, to accomplish something, to learn, to experience God again.
Yet, we don’t do that. At least, I don’t always do that. I don’t wake up ready to conquer the world every day. But I do know that today I can change. And tomorrow I can choose to live purposefully. And the day after that. A good attitude is a choice, albeit one I don’t always make, but still a choice.
