This morning the thought came to me that today was the best day of my life. It really surprised me. Today? Really? There was nothing special about today. I started questioning how this average day in my life could be the best day of my life. Then I realized that every day has that potential. Here are four tips to make today an amazing day, if not the best day of your life.
1. Begin Each Day With Gratitude.
Focus on what you are grateful for in your life. We have so much to be grateful for, but there are times when moms get so busy that this important step gets overlooked. Do not rob yourself of this extremely important practice. When I woke up this morning, I praised God for sending Jesus Christ to resolve the sin problem so He sees me as perfect forever (Hebrews 10:14). The first thing that came to my mind was that this was the best day of my life. The feeling of anticipation and joy over what God had in store for me today was overwhelming. Could today really be the best day of my life? Why not?
2. Bless Your Kids Before They Wake Up.
I was filled with deep love and appreciation for my children. They were still sleeping. I had written in my #1 best selling book, The Mommy Advantage, how easy it can be to reflect on what a great blessing our kids are when they are sleeping. It is more challenging to do that when they are squabbling and wreaking havoc. This morning was one of those blissful moments where I gazed lovingly at my sweet kids. I prayed for them and blessed them. I enjoyed this addition to a happy morning routine for kids. This could be the best day of their lives.
3. Embrace Your Work.
Working is an expression of your creative talents. It is an opportunity to make a powerful impact on those around you. My day included private coaching appointments. I love my clients! They are a delight, and their beautiful contribution to their families and to the world brings me to tears. It is such an honor to be a mirror to their greatness and reflect back and clarify their message and gifts. Working one on one with clients fills me up because without them, I wouldn’t get to fulfill my life purpose. Thank you!
4. Remember That Every Day Is A Gift.
Do not squander it. It is precious. You are never guaranteed to wake up in the morning. Today is the only day we have in this present moment. The past is in the past. I have many wonderful memories like (not in any particular order) the day my kids were born, the day I graduated summa cum laude, the day I married my husband, the day I was baptized, and more. But they are in the past. And the future is yet to come. Today is all I have. So it is the best day of my life.
May you and your family have an amazing day – today and always. Comment below and let me know how you day goes.
