You see these things all the time, inspirational sayings, bon mots for the social media generation. Usually I ignore their throwaway chirpiness, not really believing either the sentiment or the silliness of most of them.
I like this one though. It was posted a couple of times on Facebook this morning: “It’s a good day to have a good day.”
It made me stop for a moment and think. I thought: ‘Yes, I can buy that. In fact I’d go even further and say that every day is a good day to have a good day.’
Well, given the fact that a lot of the time, particularly over the last few years, bad days, often of my own making, have been there in self-created abundance. So, I was a little surprised to find myself smiling and thinking that even the bad days are a good day to have a good day. The wet days, the cold days, the I've just had some bad news days, the I'm broke days, in pain days, tired days, bored days, my partner has split days, even my cat has just died days, should all be good days to have a good day.
It's hard I know, but it’s worth trying because ultimately none of us know how many days we have left or when our last day will be.
So, we might as well try to enjoy them all. After all, even the bad ones must have some good in them..
