A good day

Today I am grateful that I not only made it through the work day, I did it with finesse. I arrived early and without major anxiety. A co-worker quit so I had to cover her class during my plan but I remained unfazed. I taught 6 classes straight with only a short lunch break and I felt fine. I kept my energy and my smile all day long. I even stayed late for a meeting and to wrap up some details. Today I feel good about myself, confident, capable and guilt-free. This is a welcome change.

Yesterday afternoon I decided again to try changing my mind. When I awoke today I remembered this. Last night I dreamed about the first time I dated a new guy and it reminded me how exciting fresh starts can be. As I went into my day I told myself, "Look at this with the excitement and the eyes that you would some new event in your life. Don't let it be stale." I was able to hold that with me all day. I remembered to smile a lot at the kids and to praise their efforts. I remembered to ask them about their vacations and to welcome them back. It felt good to be so positive.

I won't claim that each day forward will be the same but I am reinspired to confront life's challenges as they arise. I am thankful today for this boost in my confidence.

Just having a good attitude and remembering to enjoy! That is great to hear! And even on those not-so-great days, we can remember the good ones and strive to have more of those.
