 I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes midnight.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today.
 I am important.
 My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.
 Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or...
 I can be thankful the grass is getting watered for free.
 Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or...
 I can be glad my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.
 Today I can grumble about my health or...
 I can rejoice I am alive.
 Today I can lament over all my parents didn't give me when I was
 growing up or...
 I can feel grateful they allowed me to be born.
 Today I can cry because roses have thorns or...
 I can celebrate that thorns have roses.
 Today I can mourn my lack of friends or...
 I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.
 Today I can whine because I have to go to work or...
 I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.
 Today I can complain because I have to go to school or...
 eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
 Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or...
 I can feel honored because God has provided shelter for my mind,
 body and soul.
 Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
 And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.
 What today will be like is up to me.
 I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
 Have a GREAT DAY ... unless you have other plans.
