Joy of the Day

Joy of the Day

It is a new year and I promised myself that I would be softer in my spirit—

To look over and past the ridiculous and inane

Every morning as the new day begins I am prayerful that I can keep my bad nerves in check and my thoughts focused on positive blessings.

It can be a struggle to hear the daily news, office politics and the chit chat about the state of relationships, leadership, and broken promises, but

If I can remember the power of words to build and encourage, recall the great friendships that have inspired and stood in the gap for me over and over again

Lest I forget my failures that have been the foundation for my best come backs

Yes, this is how I can quietly, and with reverence,feel the joy of the day
