I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do
before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfil today.
I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

I can complain because the weather is rainy
I can be thankful that the grass is getting
watered for free.

I can feel sad that I don't have more money
I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my
purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

I can grumble about my health
I can rejoice that I am alive.

I can lament over all that my parents
didn't give me when I was growing up
I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

I can cry because roses have thorns
I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

I can mourn my lack of friends
I can excitedly embark upon a quest
to discover new relationships.

I can whine because I have to go to work
I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

I can complain because I have to go to school
eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new
titbits of knowledge.

I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework
I can feel honoured because the Lord has provided
shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.
I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

Have a Great Day...
Unless you have other plans.
