Pleasant As The Day Goes

Funny thing happened on the way to trying to get a full night’s sleep last night.  I didn’t!  Shut the bedroom light out just after 12:00 a.m.  Woke up at 2:30 a.m. and laid there until 3:00.  Said to myself:  “Self.  This isn’t going to work.  You’ve got the wheels turning and there is only one way to stop them in their tracks:  Read.”  Which is exactly what I did and somewhere around 4:30 a.m. I drifted back to sleep until 6:00.

Wonderful!  I got maybe four hours sleep.  I need seven!

I’m sure you’ve had similar experiences in your life and it’s frustrating to say the least.  However, it’s how we deal with any kind of frustrations in life that makes all the difference.  We can choose to project our frustrations onto our day and the people in each day through negative behavior.  Or, even in the face of the frustration, look pleasantly on our day and the people we interact with.

It is a choice.  Is it easy?  No.  Is it better?  Yes.  And, here’s why.  As pleasant as the day goes so goes the state of your mindset.

But, how do you make your day go by pleasantly?  You make a choice to have a pleasant state of mind.  One goes with the other.

Hope your day goes pleasantly!
