Today is National Upsy Daisy Day- a day to be positive and grateful for the things you have rather than seeing it as another working day you have to tick off until the weekend comes.
Each day is in fact- a gift- and if you remember that when you wake- this positive attitude will follow you throughout the day. Life is full of ups and downs- but it is your attitude towards them that counts the most. So, if you want to give it a try- here are some ways you can celebrate the seemingly negative things and turn them into something good.
Rain- Be thankful that you have a roof over your head to shield you from the elements. You have a choice to go out or stay in and hunker down till it’s over. It’s also important to note that Britain wouldn’t be so lush and green without it.
Getting up in the morning- When you wake- you know you are alive, that you’ve rested your body and you have a whole new day to make of it what you will.
Getting ready- You have running water to take a shower and brush your teeth, the funds to be able to put clothes on your back and pay for the things you use every day before you set a foot out of the door.
The commute- You are not alone- you are like everyone else- trying to make it in the world and do the best you can. Consider this thinking time rather than wasted time. It allows you to mentally prepare for the day.
Work- Remember that you are lucky to have a job to go to. You have a means to support yourself and your family, somewhere to meet new people and expand your mind.
Tiredness- Thank your body for being able to transport you to where you need to go- often without a second thought and for its ability to tell you when it needs to rest and rejuvenate.
Making dinner- Be mindful that you have food in abundance- you have choices and you can feed your body in any way you want to.
Clearing up- You have enough possessions to make an impact on your home- you own things and sometimes they stray from their place but there’s joy in setting everything back to its original state and making your world right again.
Family niggles- You have a family- you have people to share your life with, people who love you and people who want the best for you- that’s a pretty special thing even if you don’t always see eye to eye.
Late nights- You still have somewhere to lie down, find comfort and get warm- whatever time you get to bed.
Happy National Upsy Daisy Day!
