I think every day is a blank piece of a paper, white as a brand new canvas. I can draw just about anything on it for that day. I can decide to be overjoyed or miserable. I can be an optimist or a pessimist for that whole day. It’s all up to me. The whole day is my blank canvas on which to paint my masterpiece.
Once I wake up in the morning, the very first thing I do is thank God that I woke up. After all, every breath we take is a gift, a miracle. I see myself as a voyager searching for a new world. I affirm to myself, Today is a kind of day when anything is possible. Today is a clean, bright, beautiful day. I am alive, healthy, happy, and I have hope on my side. I visualize my whole day as I am dressing, like the captain of a ship studying the day’s weather report.
