Let's Make Today a Great Day, No Matter What

Some days I will be giving you tidbits of things and saying that helped me , and some days I will will be giving you positive affirmations. I have some positive affirmations written and placed by my bed, desk, in my kitchen, etc. This one is taped to a door on my desk. Nothing fancy, just written in colored pencil in my own handwriting. I have made this one my mission statement for my life.

What this affirmation means to me:
This reminds me that I am in control of my feelings and am responsible for how my day/hour/minute/second is. The 'no matter what' part tells me that I can face anything and even though I may have some sad/bad/scary feelings during the day that all in all it will be more good than bad. Think about it; when we are having a bad day is it all bad? Realistically what % is bad? Most of the time you will find that its more good than bad. (I am not including days that we have big problems to face such as a death, divorce, illness, etc. I am talking about a regular old day.) There's nothing wrong with a good day, but I really don't know what the difference is between a good and a great day. At first I had 'good day' written instead of 'great day'. Then I realized that if I say great that I am making myself think more about having those good moments throughout the day and it made me even happier.
I'd love to know what this affirmation means to you.


  1. I need one of these signs. May I borrow yours? I tend to dwell only on the negative and forget to celebrate the positive.

  2. I could use one of these signs also...
