Hallelujah kind of day

Apple Music screen shot

Yesterday was (and today is) a Hallelujah kind of day.

 

Yesterday was a victory.

Hallelujah.

Everyday, if we are focused, turns out to be a Hallelujah kind of day. But it’s hard with the weight of the world on our shoulders to remember this.

Only when the weight feels like it’s lifting do we find time to pause and count our blessings in the midst of overwhelm.

Yesterday was a better-than-average productive day.

i find it paramount to remain determined and to keep going – one ordinary day at a time – and only accept victory over what challenges me.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

This website is about our mental attitude. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s physical health website, click here.

Will You Rejoice Today?

Looking Forward To Monday!!
Looking Forward To Monday!!

Mondays have such a bad rap.

Why is that?

I can’t wait to get to work on Mondays.

Can you picture Nelson Mandela in prison for 27 years, wishing for a day when he COULD go to work?

Yeah, many of you hate your jobs.

Dwell on that and how do you think your day will go?

Find a different angle. Work hard at it if you have to.

Of course it won’t be easy, but at least you’re not in prision.

Right?

Mid Life Ailments Thankfully

“This is true joy in life. … To be a force of nature, not a feverish clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.” – George Bernard Shaw

If I focused on my ailments and grievances, that’s all you’d hear me talk about.

Instead, I’m thankful that my feet hurt after a long day of standing and teaching others.

There are people who wish they had sore feet.  Well actually, they simply wish they had feet.  Not everyone does.

This reminds me to be thankful for everything. Everything.  Ya with me?

Roll With Mid Life?

Yes, we should “roll with it”, mid life, that is.  There is no avoiding it.  Is there?  Maybe if our lives are cut short, we could avoid mid life, but that’s really the only way.  Who wants that?

Not me.  So what can a person do?  Why not “roll with it“.  A phrase I learned a long time ago.  It means to take whatever you are given and “roll with it“, or make the most of it.

If you can’t change what you are given or presented with, why not make something good from it?  Because if we don’t, then we are destined, it would seem, to complain.  Who wants that? Here, let me demonstrate how simple this concept is. Please pay attention, it’s over in ten seconds.
