Not original, but definitely thought provoking

This showed up in my inbox yesterday and I just re-read it and decided to share. I know the last two days my posts have not come from my brain, but they did come from my heart. They've been reminders that I've needed at that very moment. Definitely a "God thing".

What Kind of Day Shall I Have?

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the day ends.
I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important.
My job is to choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or ...
I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or...
I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely
and guide me away from waste.

Today I can grumble about my health or...
I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was
growing up or...
I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or...
I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or..
I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or...
I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can complain because I have to go to school or...
I can eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of

Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or...
I can feel honored because Life has provided shelter for my mind, body
and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the
sculptor who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to
me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!
