7 Words That Could Change Your Day

The words stayed with me long after my vacation in Maine

long after I’m miles and miles from the store

long after the long summer days have ended.

“It’s Going to be a Wonderful day.”

Yes, that’s how she greeted us each morning when I pay for

 my hot vanilla coffee

 and blueberry muffin.

Big smile on her face

and those words.

“It’s going to be a wonderful day.”

I always received them like a blessing on my day.

Of course it would be wonderful.

Why I was on vacation and the sun was shining

and well it couldn’t possibly be anything less.

But what about today?

My coffee is poured on this early Friday morn

 and I’ve had my morning Quiet time

and then those words come to mind

It’s going to be a wonderful day.

I could feel myself smiling,

But then…

what about all the pain

the suffering

the known huge struggles all around?

Those still exist .No denying that.

But in the midst of it all

to declare that it will be a wonderful day is more about a

personal  statement than about  the conditions all around us.

No, it’s an inner preparation –

a mental mindset-

to declare right at the beginning

it WILL be a wonderful day.

Reminds me of ‘This is the Day that the Lord has made

and I will rejoice and be glad in it.’

Today.

A gift.

A declaration.

A truth.

No matter what

It’s going to be a wonderful day.

Suddenly I feel  energetic, and strong and upbeat.

It gives a  clearer perspective of hope

that prepares  me for whatever lies ahead.

Yes, I might not have the ocean but I have this gift. These 7 simple words.

At the beginning of the day

to declare

that it will be a wonderful day.

Guess I have a new way to start my day.

Instead of waiting to see

I’m calling it. And encouraging you.

If every day you began it by saying to yourself

‘It’s going to be a wonderful  day’

wouldn’t that help? A lot.

You might just find it helpful too.

Try it with me.

And please take the time to share with me your experience.
