Will this be the best ever for you?

Recently I received an email with this wish:
May 2010 be the best year of your life!!!

sunriseDon’t you want this coming year to be the best ever for you?  Since life happens one moment and one day at a time, the only time you can impact how well your life will be lived is today.  We all have life circumstances that can be “better or worse” depending on the incremental choices that we make in the moment, every day of our lives.

Take a look at what you have planned for the rest of today.  What might shift if you decided to make this the most meaningful, contributing, successful day you can live?  Consider these questions in choosing your best possible day scenario:

  1. What activities will make up My Best Day? To make this a best day, contributing to an overall best year ever, what are my choices?  What activities must be carried out, which might be better handled another day?  Which might be dropped all together since they don’t significantly contribute to me, others I care about or the world around me?
  2. How can I carry out my activities so they will add to the quality of This Best Day? What are my choices in how I carry out both essential duties and desires?  What will increase my enjoyment?

Waking up this morning next to my husband I created a best morning experience.  Rather than a quick peck on the cheek, I gazed into his eyes and greeted him with a smile, kiss and words full of love and appreciation for having him as my life partner.

I recently had friends spend the night.  Time with these friends who I dearly love would absolutely make this a best day ever.  Their overnight visit meant they would be with me on Monday morning, which is generally a work day at my home office.  In the time leading up to the weekend I cleared my Monday morning schedule.  Monday morning I reminded myself of my modified work start time so that I’d avoid distracting thoughts.  I also let my friends know how much time I had to spend with them.  With my decks cleared and them knowing my availability we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast and walk together.  I could be fully present with them knowing that I’d shift my focus to work obligations later in the day.

Shifting your days to the best possible is a daily choice.  Will you make today the first of many that will make 2010 your Best Year Ever?  Write me about it!

May peace break into your home and may thieves come to  steal your debts.

May  the pockets of your jeans become a magnet for $100 bills.

May love stick to your face like Vaseline and may laughter assault your  lips!

May  happiness slap you across the face and may your tears be that of  joy

May the problems you had, forget your home address!
