A VERY BAD DAY went “AWESOME” due to the influence of an amazing, heartfelt child!
Inspired by A. Johnson
National “LUCKY GREEN DAY”
A SINGLE DAY WHEN…
1) EVERYONE WEARS AND NOTICES GREEN…
TO REMIND YOURSELF AND OTHERS TO…
2) APPRECIATE AND FEEL LUCKY FOR WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE!
3) SHARE with the WORLD what you feel “LUCKY” to HAVE in YOUR LIFE TODAY!
WHAT ONE NOTICES IS WHAT ONE’S LIFE BECOMES!
Rush, Rush, Rush… Need to get it all done! Hurry, Hurry, Hurry… Need to get somewhere! Nothing is going right!! I’m so tired! I’m so behind! I wish my life was different! I wish I had more! I’m so grumpy!
Suddenly, my beautiful daughter, full of spirit, energy, and genuine happiness walks up to me wearing GREEN!!!!
“Mommy, today is NATIONAL “LUCKY GREEN DAY!” “We are starting the day over!”
I was initially confused about my daughter’s purpose and what she was trying to teach me.
Yes, Honey… GREEN is really LUCKY, Thank you! I need a lot of “LUCK!” — not even taking time to look into her eyes and being to busy to understand what she was REALLY telling me.
“No Mommy, today is NATIONAL ‘LUCKY GREEN DAY’ … I’m inventing it!”
NATIONAL “LUCKY GREEN DAY” is a day when EVERYONE wears GREEN and … it’s kind-of-like St. Patrick’s Day and Thanksgiving mixed into one.
On this special day, when you wear green, EVERYONE IS REMINDED OF WHAT THEY’RE ALREADY LUCKY FOR because, you know, we actually are really “LUCKY” and we already have a lot more than we appreciate!
The next thing you know, our entire family was wearing GREEN despite our starch resistance, and my continued grumpiness.
Suddenly, I was reminded of an inspiring quote by Oprah Winfrey.
As I continued to shuffle around our home working, I noticed myself becoming more and more aware of GREEN everywhere!
I noticed a profound mental shift happening and I continued to become more and more mindful of GREEN!!
GREEN was in EVERYTHING!!!
The more I thought about “Green” the more it APPEARED!
The more I thought “LUCKY” the more I felt “LUCKY”!
The more I thought about “GREEN” and “LUCKY” the more they became my reality!
Could my daughter’s idea be teaching me the reality of the appreciating what I already have and the Universal Law of Attraction and Thankfulness? Yes, my daughter was teaching me the Laws of the Universe!
Albert Einstein says it ALL!
Despite this awareness, and as the day went on, I noticed myself over and over again focusing on my “To Do List” and missing out on life.
Out of the clear blue, I suddenly “REALIZED” that there will ALWAYS be a “To Do List,” but I MUST take time each day to REALIZE, ENJOY, and be THANKFUL for what I ALREADY have… TODAY… For by focusing on GOODNESS … more GOODNESS will come!
The TRUE GIFT of LIFE is to allow more GOODNESS in each day and to be mindful and aware of what we ALREADY have!
In my daughter’s words, “Think about what we already are lucky for NOW, instead of what we hope for! Be Aware and Feel Lucky for What You already have! I put on my calendar October 28 for National “LUCKY GREEN DAY”… A day in the future that the world can celebrate! I hope everyone celebrates starting this YEAR!”
So, Just for TODAY… may we SEE, DISCOVER, APPRECIATE, and FEEL our own “LUCKY GREEN”!
May we become more AWARE of the things we ALREADY are “LUCKY” for “TODAY”!
Just as I started to enjoy the moment, my daughter runs outside to tell me:
“Mommy your song, The Climb, is on the radio!” Tears rolled down my eyes again as I realized from my daughter that hardships will come and go, but I have to keep “Climbing” and “Enjoying” the “Journey” along the way … and for TODAY realizing and feeling very “LUCKY” for what I already have!
