Have you ever noticed that each day can deliver its own frame of mind, depending on what it is, that you have going on in your life at that time. If there is good stuff happening, then the chances are you will be in a good frame of mind, the converse is usually true also.
Do we have any say?
For instance if things are not so good right now, is it possible to be in a good frame of mind, without any action on your part or does the frame of mind naturally flow in the same direction as your present state of affairs.
I am a firm believer that we create our own destiny (to a degree). Today I have reached my destiny, nothing too exciting, in fact it’s just another ordinary day. I ask myself, Did I play any part in this being a routine day, could I have changed the outlook for today if I had of done things differently yesterday or the preceding days, weeks, months…? The answer has to be yes, an emphatic yes! There are any number of things I could have done differently in recent times, things that would have changed the outlook for today.
If I make changes today, they will create a different tomorrow. Hey I like some of the stuff that’s going down today, that helps me to define those things which I am not so happy about. These are the only parts of today that I would like to change, the things that I’m not happy with.
Today is the beginning of the rest of my days, I can do things today to change the outcome of things down the road. I can do things which will have a definitive impact on my frame of mind in all my tomorrows. The choice is mine, I can choose to make a change. I can choose to be in a good mood, even in the face of adversity. Choosing to be cheerful at the beginning of each day is a good start, it’s like a healthy choice of breakfast for my mind.
