What does it mean to have a good day?

What does it mean to have a good day?

The answer to that question varies from person to person, but if there is such a thing as a good day at all, I’ll tell you what it DOESN’T mean.

A good day does not mean “a 24-hr period in which there were absolutely no inconveniences, mishaps, challenges, or unpleasant experiences.

If you define “good day” in that way, you’ll probably never have one.

When your sense of well-being depends on the absence of contrast, a good day will always appear to be too far away.

Have high expectations for yourself, but don’t confuse happiness with being exempt from the experience of not getting your way.

Every single day, in one way or another, some aspect of your life will seem to fall short of an ideal (at least from the perspective of the ego).

If you ever want to have a good day, you’ll need a definition of “good day” that’s big enough to accommodate that simple universal fact.

That’s today’s two cents.

  1. A good day is waking up without pain, physical or emotional, looking at the skies to see the sun rise, and the first cup of coffee. Followed by a text or a phone call from an old friend. Relaxing with a good book and day dreaming of tomorrow with plans of extrordinary adventures. This is a good day to me, a day that is so simple and possible.
