The Best Day Of My Life

The best day of my life happens every morning when I open my eyes to another glorious day! 

My joy is not dependent on the weather.  It can be pouring down rain; hot and humid; or numbingly cold.  

My happiness does not depend on how good or bad I feel; how much my body hurts or how comfy and warm my bed is.

"Waking up on the right side of the sod", does not dictate how wonderful I feel (even though THAT IS a plus).  Even the prospect of dealing with the negative people that surround me cannot steal my joy away.

I have decided that no matter what may come at me . . . today IS the best; most joyful; fun; exciting and glorious day of my life!  The questions I ask myself each morning are these:  

"Why is this day the best day of my life?  What surprises await me today to show me how delicious today is?  How is the Universe going to remind me TODAY of how special I AM?  

Then, just as the butterfly emerges from it's cocoon, I roll out of my cozy bed, and my feet hit the floor the excitement within me has built to such a degree that dancing is the only mode of travel.  I almost feel like the little birds from Cinderella will be flying through my window at any moment to aid me in getting dressed for the day.

Sound too good to be true?  This IS my life!  I have CHOSEN it to be so!  Each and every day, I now expect the Universe to pour out an endless supply of blessings because I see this day as the most glorious day of my life.

I am so grateful and I am blissfully ecstatic that I CAN CHOOSE to see how magnificent each day is.

Would you like to join me in my excitement?  All it takes is a CHOICE.


  1. Thank you so much for this wonderful piece. I love your way of viewing life. May you continue to be in forever joy.

  2. This is absolutely beautiful, Pat. You said it perfectly, and it made me smile so much!!

    I thought it was so cute too when I read about the birds and animals with Cinderella. I feel the same way, and Chris always says that's how he depicts me. lol

    It really is as simple as a CHOICE and reaching for better thoughts always no matter what.
    All things are always working together for our Good! :)

    Thank you for sharing Pat, I love this!!


  3. Yes indeed, I do believe I will join you,as this is essentially how I see life as well. Blessing s to you. I am so happy for you that you are able to see life this way. Thank you for sharing your vision.


  4. This was wonderful and I plan to print out the questions and put them by my bed to read in the morning.


  5. more than anything, i wish i could believe this.
    i would give anything to feel joy in life again.

  6. o Anonymous: Why not start by playing a game with yourself. Tomorrow, ask yourself "if this was the most joyous day I will ever have, what does that feel like? And, what does that even mean?" Go beyond the obvious "no bills, perfect mate and children". Besides that stuff, what makes THIS day so special?

    If you would like to email me personally, I would be happy to help you further.

    Blessings to you!
