It’s A Good Day

DSC_0096 (2)

The sun came out today. And that already makes it a good day – as anyone settled into the winter grays knows.

So it’s a good day.

It’s a good day for fun because sunny winter days should be frivolous and festive. No obligations for me today. No have-tos, shoulds, or musts either.

Today’a a good day for putting off until tomorrow what should be done today.

It’s a day for dreaming, not doing.  A day for once upon a times. Today is it … that once upon a time, time. A day for romance and happily-ever-afters.

Get around to something. Whatever it is you’ve been waiting until today to make, do, or try. Today’s your day! A new recipe. A yoga class. Some peppermint tea and the Sunday paper. Pull that book down from the shelf you’ve been meaning to read. Or write the story you’ve been telling yourself for years.

Avoid decision-making and planning. It’s a day for experimenting!

Or lollygagging.

A sprinkle of random. A dash of unpredictable. Imagine. And become.

It’s a good day to be whoever you’ve always wanted to be.

Strong. Nurturing. Kind. Intellectual. Gracious. Forgiving. Gentle. Friendly.

Today, you can be that good friend who … the neighbor down the road who noticed … the spouse who remembered … the mother, daughter, son, sister, father, or partner who was just what was needed – today.

Because today truly is a great day to… and I’m hopeful tomorrow will be too.

  1. Yes and amen! I join you in pronouncing that today’s a good one. A very good one! I don’t necessarily care for what’s on the agenda, but that’s life, isn’t it.

    We get to decide how we’ll respond.

    It’s a good one.
