Danny’s World: Is Having a Good or Bad Day Really Up To You?

Danny's iphone 022I opened up Facebook this morning to check the Dream Big fan page and the first post I see on my personal page is “I hope today is a better day than yesterday”.  Apparently this person had a bad day yesterday and was speaking to the universe in order to gain favor and have a great day today.  I wonder, though, if having a good or bad day is up to us or up to happenstance?

I believe we are each the author of our own life.  We have the power in our mind to maintain perspective and keep a positive view of things which in turn helps to make every day a better day.  To hope for a better day, in my opinion, is all about attitude.  You either allow events to impact you so greatly that you take on a bad mood…or you let events run off you like water off a duck’s back.  Of course I am talking about daily life stuff, not death, critical injuries, miscarriages, disease diagnoses, etc.

I try to maintain the perspective that I am in control of the way I respond to what happens around me throughout the day.  I cannot control what happens but I can control me.
