For most people, “How was your day?” is simply a salutation. We are supposed to give a spirited affirmative response or perhaps a short lament about how busy we are and the conversation is over.
But my brain doesn’t work that way. If you ask me “how was my day”…then my brain starts a quirky computation of adding and subtracting and tries to produce some kind of result. (yes, I am just that weird)
Yesterday turned out to be one of those amazing days that my internal calculator really liked.
- Spent time with family and friends at the hospital worrying about someone we love. My soul filled with joy because I made the wise choice to not let anything take me away from something so priceless (even my crown that fell out the night before).
- Did a special favor for a friend that made a huge difference in their life
- Launched a new project at work that has the potential to improve the lives of everyone in the organization. It was something that God seems to have made uniquely for me…and I listened and followed His plan.
- I went home on time and had a wonderful dinner outside on the porch with my wife and sister-in-law. Our conversation was relaxed and meaningful.
As I look back, yesterday stands out as a special day. How do I stay on track to repeat that today? Can I repeat it again tomorrow?
What does a great day look like to you?
Thanks for listening.
