It Is Only For One DayAuthor: Byron Pulsifer, ©2012
Do you realize that each day is a new opportunity? A new opportunity to awaken in the light of day to start afresh. It isn't a day to waste or a day to hold grudges. Instead, it is a day, only one day, and it is amazing what can be done.
"If you don't think every day is a great day try going without one."
Wisdom from Jim Evans
For example, in the treatment of alcoholism and others, there are treatments strategies that can be easily adapted to each day you live. It is a strategy to not drink for just a one day, and one day at a time.
During The Day
During the day, you can make it a vow to be happy, to exude confidence, and caring or love for your family. After all, it is only for a day.
During the day, you can go from task to task, to meet each colleague and each person no matter how frustrating without losing your temper, or showing frustration by being arrogant or ignorant. After all, it is only one day.
During the day, your concerns, trials and tribulations can be born without complaining or involving everyone else in your own persona. After all, it is only for a day.
During the day, you can control your fear and move forward without worry or being concerned about the risk. After all, it is only for one day.
During the day, you can extend a hand of warmth and friendliness to strangers or the less than fortunate. After all, it is only for one day.
During the day, you can forget what went wrong yesterday for yesterday is done and today is here. Make the most of your day right now. After all, it is only for one day.
Life isn't perfect but we all have a chance each new day to do many things. We can decide to make it a great day, or we can simply squander it with pettiness, old grudges, or dwelling on previous mistakes.
During each day, we can make a choice. We can make a choice to actually be in total control of our life. We do not have to give it away willingly to somebody else. We do not have to give the power to decide what our destiny is or isn't. There are a lot of people who seem to want to control others in the sense that they seem to relish the idea that they need to mold someone else just the way they want. It is not there prerogative to design your life in any way at all unless this is what you really want. But, I doubt that you want to be created by someone else’s desires. You are your own person with the ability to create the life you want. After all, it is only one day.
During the day, you can build a life by initiating one action step that will take you further along the road to where you ultimately want to be. Each day is a brand new opportunity to take a step for after all, it is only one step for each day.
Today is the start of developing a sense of worthiness around you by giving to others without expecting anything in return. It only takes a few minutes from your day to offer this assistance for after all, it is only a day.
"Today is life - the only life you are sure of. Make the most of today. Get interested in something. Shake yourself awake. Develop a hobby. Let the winds of enthusiasm sweep through you. Live today with gusto."
Wisdom from Dale Carnegie
During the day, be alive, be happy, be dedicated, and be real, just live each day.
