Good morning Paul,

We have a choice everyday we wake up. The choice is ours to make it a great day as we will never have this day back again!

Having a great attitude is more than half the battle and waking up in a positive mood certainly will set the tone for the day ahead.

Good morning Paul. Immediate thought Joe to James Dray, who like me has reached an age where waking up on the right side of the grass makes it a great day. Tomorrow is even better! Enjoy your day.

Hello Paul, Canadian Hockey great, I did not know this of you.  Thanks for informing us .

Hello Paul - as shared before, my knowledge of sports history is relatively small.  However, my own name is associated with a Mike Jacobs of boxing fame (but not in the ring) long before I "came on the scene". 

In later years, there was (and is) a television show producer with my same name.  Maybe I should look for some quotes that may be attributed to him because no one would want to (and certainly shouldn't) use my words to "define" me.  Happy Monday.  🙃

Paul, you sure should get up THINKING you will have a good day, otherwise it probably won't be!

Hi Paul- thank you to the quote from your "alter ego" and what a great one it is. We always have choices...we can choose to have a good day no matter what.
