Default Make My Day

Make My Day
Don’cha love Dirty Harry movies? Who can forget Eastwood’s grimace as he snarls at the bad guy, saying, “go ahead, punk….make my day.”

Who or what “makes YOUR day?”
• When all the lights are green on the way to work…
• When I get the first cup of a pot of coffee…
• When the jeans zip up with no problem…
• When I discover I’m getting a tax REFUND…
• When I go to sleep with clean, fresh sheets…
• When the office complainer gets transferred to another department…

Yeah, baby! Just made my day.

Here’s a thought: consider that whoever or whatever MAKES your day also TAKES your day.

It’s one thing to be glad about something…it’s another if it makes your day. See the difference?
I’m going to be a tad more judicious with my words. I’m changing “that just made my day” to a simpler, “that’s great.”

Not a big deal? I dunno…small things can pack a big punch. [ask a mosquito]

Are you up for a challenge? For the next week, when you get up, announce this: “TODAY IS MY DAY.” Remind yourself of this, too, as the day progresses: “Today is MY day. I am in charge of how I feel, think and act.”

A small thing with a big punch. Lace up those boxing gloves, Ali. You get to decide WHO and HOW you’re going to be today. Take back your day.

I always try to be positive and tell myself that "Today is my day" even though sometimes it won't turn out that way.
