Today Could Be Awesome

Today Could Be AwesomeOccasionally 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.

What’s one thing you’re accomplishing today?  Or one thing you’re going to learn about today?  Or one way you’re going to experience God today?
