Did you wake up at the crack of dawn with PASSION and EXCITEMENT that THIS Day is YOURS????? OR???? Did you wake up today after hitting the snooze button 3 times upset that you have to face “another” day???? Why and What separates those people that LOVE life and LOVE TODAY???? To me it’s quite simple…. ATTITUDE…. The attitude of gratitude for another chance, opportunity,sunset, sunrise, hug from your granddaughter, movie night with your wife, watching Seinfeld and laughing with your daughter, exercising and talking with your wife and daughter, and the list goes on and on for me…. For many years I use to be the guy that woke up to 3 snooze alarms dreading the day that was upon me…. I finally realized I had a choice… The choice to be thankful for the little things, big things, and everything in between. When I began to choose gratitude I began to anticipate TODAY… I remember asking my Dad why and how he approached each day with such high expectations and enthusiasm. His words of wisdom should be used for all of us… He said, “I remember as a small boy anticipating Christmas day and the excitement of the night before knowing something special was going to happen tomorrow. Now he says I do the same as I lie in bed ready to sleep… My mind anticipates tomorrow as that little boy knowing something special will happen tomorrow… And guess what? It usually does..
