Having a good day and making a good day

Some people are born rich.  Some people are born beautiful.  Some people are born and it seems everything  goes their way.

Most people are not those people.

Most people go about their lives doing whatever it is they do with whatever it is they have to work with.  They get by well enough to continue getting by.

Some of those people wail and wallow about not having that perfect life.  They wish for this or that and always want more.

Then, there are people that take what they are given and make the most of it.  They find joy in the job they have. They spend time with the people around them trying to do good.  They look at what joy there is in their lives and make it a good day.

No matter how perfect those first people's lives might seem, they are no better than your life; if you make it so.

"Look to this day:
For yesterday is but a dream
And tomorrow is only a vision;
And today well-lived, makes
Yesterday a dream of happiness
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well therefore to this day"

Don't spend your time looking for that perfect day or that perfect life.  Make today a good day by looking for and finding the little things that will make it so.  Then, tell someone.
