My Favorite Day

 

I am going to try to have a more positive outlook on today. So what day is it today? My favorite day. It doesn’t matter what day it is. Yes, I am lying in a way. Some days are better than others. But this just simply means that we should find something good in each day. Allowing negativity to consume me at times defeats who I really am. I am not that person. Circumstances have sometimes caused me to feel quite negative. Then again, that is what death, loss and physical pain does to someone. But I have to work hard to overcome this.

Can I do it? So how do I do it? Yes, I can do it. Daily? No, probably not. It’s a struggle. It’s against my nature. How do I do it? I look for positive things. I pray. I pray A LOT! In the last couple of years I have gotten to the point where my prayers are no longer just a monologue. They’re conversations. A conversation is back and forth communication. I don’t feel like I am talking to the air anymore. I finally quit thinking it was me talking to myself. I feel real guidance. And it has been absolutely real. It helped me out of situations that were scary and even dangerous.

So on those days when it’s not my favorite, I remind myself of the good things. I keep positive things in my mind. I try to remember good things in my life rather than bad. All things happen for a reason.

So last night was a crazy night at work. But what day is today? My favorite day.

  3. Today is my favorite day, too. Thirty-five months ago, today, I relapsed. Binged. That was my last binge. Keep working with that Higher Power of yours. Your strength comes from your faith, and I think that’s a beautiful thing to have appreciation. A good day to be alive.

    • Congratulations on your success, Jess! How amazing for you! Last night was a HORRIBLE night at work, but know what? Today is my favorite day. I am home and away from it and home with my bratty cats. 🙂
