Turning my day around...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Infinity

Good morning!

I woke this morning feeling very positive. Optimistic. Positive from a healthy night of deep sleep. Positive from a feeling of accomplishment…

Yesterday had been an interesting day. It was a day that began with challenges, both personal and professional. It was a day that started with anxiety about the future. With doubt about my decisions and direction…

Yet somehow, by facing my challenges, by facing my anxiety, by dealing with what was in front of me moment by moment, I had managed to change the direction of my day…

What started with challenges, ended with opportunity. Anxiety and stress turned into laughter and optimism…

So when I put my head on my pillow last night, I did so with a good feeling. A feeling of contentment. I had faced my challenges, and turned the path of my day around. I had been brave, even though I didn’t feel brave at the time…

And today is a new day. And it will be filled with cool experiences. With interesting people. With exciting opportunities…

So I face this day excited. Excited about the people I will be meeting. The experiences that will be shared. And the opportunities that are in front of me…

Have a great day!

Ken

Good morning Ken. An upbeat approach to challenges but some specifics would be helpful too.

Hello Ken - it only takes a day, actually a moment, to change the day from one of doubt and to laughter.  It's rather amazing about the power of attitude.

It's all about attitude, isn't it? I'm glad you "saw the Light" and there's also something to be said for a good and restful night's sleep.

Great post Ken! When ever I feel like you did I try to remember my mother 's favorite prayer, the Serenity Prayer! 

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

That's a great attitude and philosophy to have, Ken. We all have days that are mixed with good and bad, the expected and the unepected.
