Turning my day around...

What our colleague Ken Tracy writes about here applies to everyone, and was just the message I needed to hear today. We have the power if we choose to use it. 

Original content by Ken Tracy

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

Oh, we do have days like this and like you, I feel like I've had more of these of late than ever before in my life too, Lottie! But, you know, somehow, consciously putting the focus on positive (which I know sounds hokey), worked brilliantly. 

I hope that you were able to do the same thing and that your day was turned around too, Lottie! Sending you big hugs from Charlotte.

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS - actually, I've had many wonderfully uplifting days--they far exceed the few tough ones. Everything in life is good here, as I hope it is for you and Ray.

I'm happy to hear that, Lottie! When you said it struck a chord with you today, I worried you were having a down day. 

It was just a re-blog that makes you focus on turning those 'down' days around - generic, and I'm happy to hear that!

Hope you're having a great week. Mine has certainly gotten better this last week, for sure.
