Each Day Go All In – It’s The Only Day We’ve Got
Going out into the world with positive anticipation of good things that may happen goes a long way toward recognizing the positive things big and small that transpire throughout your day. If you look for the positive, you’re more likely to find it. This compensates for a common phenomenon of the negative sticking in our memories at the end of the day. Recalling a few positive moments to balance the unpleasant ones helps one to sustain one’s excitement and enthusiasm for the next day, and the next.
NOTE: Our bodies follow our mind. When we wake up and put enthusiasm into our mind, our bodies will follow. The converse also applies. It’s a reasons why positive and optimistic self talk first thing in the morning is so important. It’s much better to say, “I feel great” and “I’m going have a great day” instead of, “I’m dragging” or “I don’t feel up to up.” You’ll get what you feed into your mind.
“We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.” D. H. Lawrence
NOTE: Life is going to go on with or without us. We’re going to take hits and get knocked down. If we have the courage to rise each time we’re knocked down, we’ll become stronger, more resilient, and develop a tenaciousness that will see us through the toughest times. Rise each time you fall. You’re stronger than you realize.

Joe: “After a brief negotiation, my parents let me in.”
When first you sang a song to me
With laughter shining from your eyes,
You trolled your music liltingly
With cadences of glad surprise.
In after years I heard you croon
In measures delicately slow
Of trees turned silver by the moon
And nocturnes sprites and lovers know.
And now I cannot hear you sing,
But love still holds your melody
For silence is a sounding thing
To one who listens hungrily.
“Just because something is hard doesn’t mean it’s impossible.”

Sugary drinks, candy, and pastries put too much fuel (sugar) into your blood too quickly. The ensuing crash leaves you tired and hungry again. “Complex carbs,” healthy fats, and protein take longer to digest, satisfy your hunger, and provide a slow, steady stream of energy.
