On the second day of Christmas, my true love brought to me……..the sunrise and the sunset!

This morning I was up bright and early, and saw the sunrise, which inspired this post.

I think it is a universally held belief that even though it happens every day, seeing the sunrise is just SO amazing! The beauty, the serenity, the hope that today will be a good day! But we must make that promise to ourselves: today WILL be a good day. Why? Because I will do my best to make it so! When I approach a day with that mind-set, with that positive attitude, it is already a good day. And I commit to myself that having a good day means doing good for others. It can be as simple as a smile, a hug, a good deed or paying someone a compliment. It does not have to be huge or overwhelming, just a simple gesture.

Likewise, seeing a beautiful sunset reminds me to ask myself the question: was it a good day? Did I do good for others? It helps me reflect on my day. Was I the best person I could be TODAY? Don’t be too hard on yourself. Take one day at a time. If we do good, do our best and accomplish a goal, no matter how small or large, enjoy the day you’ve had. And if not, you’ll have another chance tomorrow, when the sun rises again!

Part of the challenge of living with a disability or having a loved one with a disability is taking each day as it comes. Yes, of course, we need to prepare and think about the future, but if we take just these few minutes a day at sunrise and sunset to think about TODAY, I believe we can all live a little better, breathe a little easier and have the strength to face another day.

Enjoy your day! Make it a good one!  Cynthia
