Today has been a productive day at my house.
It’s raining. The kids’ bus was 20 minutes late. And it’s “cold” — a whole 64°F (all my Utah friends are rolling their eyes and laughing at me right now). Normally, I would be in a pretty foul mood under these circumstances.
But today is different. Today I decided to be positive.
Today, despite the cold, wet, and late start, I have been able to read the news, attend an important meeting that I nearly forgot about (thank you Google Calendars for the reminder!), work on a new piece of Art, study Russian, admire the subtly-changing colors of a new Season, write a short blog post, and take a couple cell phone photos. And the day isn’t over yet.
Never mind the fact that my “To Do” list is about a mile long. “Productive” is a relative term.
My good friend taught me to “Celebrate the small victories”, and I intend to do just that.
So be happy today. Be productive. And celebrate. Because today is another good day.
