This may not be the best day of your life, but you almost certainly have the power to make it better than it might have been.

There’s the distinct possibility that today could be a perfect one for you.

How very lovely that would be.

Perfect days, however, tend to be few and far between. And far be it from me to rain on your parade but let’s face it, isn’t it more likely that this will be an average kind of day? Perhaps even a less-than-average one?

There are those who exhort us to spring out of bed every morning, determined that this will be the best day of our lives.

I’m sure it helps to keep a positive mind-set, if you can.

However I also think it pays to be realistic.

If you’ve had perfect (or almost-perfect) days in the past, you’re pretty certain to have them again in the future.

But not necessarily right here, right now.

So go ahead with your eyes open and make the most of what the day throws at you, remembering that within limits you still have a good deal of control over how you’ll feel at the end of it.

  1. Perfect days happen at the moment you least expect them. Like yesterday, I started at my new job. I barely slept the night before, worrying about what to expect.
    At the end of the day, I realised it had been a perfect day. Absolutely nothing had gone wrong. I made no mistakes, everyone was friendly and time flew. Before I knew it, the day had come to an end.
    I think we should not try to make every day perfect, but to make every day worth living. Realise it could be the last day. So when we fall into our beds in the evening, just before we fall asleep, we feel content with the day. There’s no day in my life I’d want to have left out. Whether good or bad things happen, every day was worthwhile.

  2. Thanks for this! I hope we have all had perfect days and I’m pretty sure we’ve all had horrid days! Sometimes the difference between the two are your expectation and sometimes things happen outside of our control.. I try and wake up each day curious about the day ahead and determined to have the best or at least most interesting day possible! I look forward to your posts and share often!
