I Got The Whole World In My Hands…

This morning, I awoke beginning my 25th year of life. And I was pondering how I felt about it all, how tired I was and just how it may not have been the best start to the day.

But then I remembered that I am the only one who can determine how my day and life are going to pan out — the only one. I am the only one who can decide how my job is going to be and how I interact with my coworkers and my day-to-day work. I am the only one who determines how my relationships develop with family and friends. And once I remembered that, I told myself that I was going to have a good day. Period. End of story.

And it has worked. I am beaming right about now, my coworkers celebrated my birthday with lots of fun, good cupcakes and lots of smiles and I have been wearing my princess tiara all day at work — all of which I greatly appreciate. I am ahead of the curve with my work today and it is ridiculously sunny outside. I had a wonderful conversation with one my best friends and was reminded why we have been best friends for over 10 years now. And the day is not even over yet. I will then head out for drinks and lots of socializing with different groups of friends and hopefully catch up with a friend who I have been playing phone tag with for over three months, lol.

I say all of this to say that had I decided this morning that my day was going to be a bad one — I would have had a bad day. If I had decided that I was going to be grumpy and irritable, I would have been upset at just about everything today. And if I had decided that this next year was going to be a poor one, trust me that it would have manifested itself as such. So watch what you say. Be mindful of what you think. It is difficult to do sometimes, but then you are reminded that you do have a choice. And as long as you remember that, you remember that your life is your own and what you make of it is quite frankly, for better or for worse, completely up to you.
