How to make everyday a great day!

We all have those days where everything seems to go wrong. You wake up late, spill your coffee, only commercials are playing on your favorite radio stations, you get a speeding ticket, and your day just keeps on going downhill from there. It's just one of those days. BUT, you still have a chance to make it a great day. Here's how:

1. Be thankful. 
Thank God that you woke up today!! Praise Him for your life and dwell on all He has blessed you with. You can even get out a piece of paper every morning and list three things that you are thankful for. 

2. Put a smile on! 
Just like the song in the movie, Annie, says, "You're never fully dressed without a smile!" You would be surprised how much of a difference a simple smile makes! Try it!

3. Serve others. 
Wait... What? You're having a bad day and I'm telling you to serve other people? Yes. I am. As you bring joy to other people through serving them (with a selfLESS heart), you will find joy. Seeing how appreciative other people are through what you do for them can in turn bring you satisfaction. Besides all that, it gets your mind off your own struggles.

4. Trust
Trust that God is holding you and He has great plans for you. Jeremiah 29:11, "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares The Lord, 'Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" God loves you!!

5. Endure
James 1:12 tells us that, "A man who endures trials is blessed, because when he passes the test he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him." Being able to endure through tough and icky situations is a blessing!

Rather than wasting a day by dwelling on what has gone wrong, make it a great day! Remember that Jesus loves you and I love you too!
