“Make it a great day!”
I kiss my daughters and say this as they start their day. Make – not have – a good day. They complain about “the stress” at school and in life. They are (soon-to-be 13) and 14. Stress. It’s a choice. Honestly. They are still learning this. My parents grew up in a country that was a battlefield. Korean War civilians know actual lack of food, closed schools and physically/emotionally battered families.
And me? I walked to school many miles – uphill – both to and from! Ok. I didn’t.
It’s the closing of the year and there is a lot going on. People feel “stress.” Don’t buy into it. Ask yourself an empowering question:
How can you be better today than you were yesterday?
Being better every day is how you reach your goals. It’s how you make a happy life.
