At the beginning of every day, ask yourself how you can make today a day you’ll wish you could relive again years from now.
(Excerpt from the Seven Book)
What an amazing practice. Do you do this with your days or do you speed through them with nothing but a blur left at the end of the week? Are you busy just to be busy or are you busy doing things you love and want to be doing? Are you busy enjoying your life?
How can you make today a day you will wish you could relive again?
At the end of every day, take a quiet moment to give thanks. Say thank you for all you’ve done, given, dreamed, said, created, loved, survived, learned, attempted, overcome, savored, and enjoyed throughout your day.
This is a powerful practice! Think about it, write it out in your journal, talk about it with a love one. What are you thankful for today? What did you do? What did you give today? What did you dream, say, create? Who did you love? What did you survive? What did you learn? What did you overcome, savor or enjoy throughout your day? Such simple questions can make a very powerful impact in your life.
Today I spent the entire day with my family. I enjoyed them and their happy little faces. The clerk at the deli stopped to tell me how beautiful my family was. I smiled. They are pretty great, I thought to myself. I savored a lovely glass of wine. Only the second bottle of wine we have cracked into all year so you better believe I savored it!
Right now I’m reading the Seven book. I’m considering how many days of the week can be extraordinary. Simply by practicing this a.m. and p.m. ritual all seven of them can be!
Curious and waiting to hear from you on what made today special for you.
