I am learning to be positive. It is very tempting to think thoughts like, “This is going to be one of those days!” Do you know that every time I have thought I will have “one of those days,” I have been right?
The thing is that when you tell yourself that you will have a bad day, you expect things to go badly. When you expect everything to go wrong, you are already giving yourself the negative attitude that causes a bad day.
Try saying this instead. “This is going to be a great day!” I wonder if your outlook won’t be better and you find yourself having a pretty good day!
I used to have a habit of saying, “I hate this day!” when I was having a bad day. One day my mom pointed out that God made each and every day and that I have no right to call it bad. After all, “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24)
