Would you do anything for a normal day?
A friend of mine was diagnosed with the not fun "C" word called cancer a few months ago and is fighting the battle. When we were talking recently she said, "what I wouldn't do for a normal day again". The funny part of it is that some of us are stuck in our "normal day", frustrated, stressed, and struggling. Are you happy about your "normal day" or are you wishing it away??
How often is a normal day a drudgery or a huge stress or a pain in the butt? You might be hating doing the laundry or mad about winter arriving or very unimpressed with your boss or employee. Our everyday lives sometimes feel like more of a bother than a joy.
But what if you were told you would never again have a normal day? Would you wish you had one? Instead of wishing for a normal day, let's soak in the joy of a normal day, whatever this day brings. Be grateful for the dishes that have to get washed because you have a family to feed and food to eat. Be grateful for the job that you go to because it is paying the bills right now. Be grateful for the argument on the phone with the bank because you have bank accounts and bills to pay, which means you have a house, a car, and options. You get the idea.
Soak in your "normal day" today and enjoy the little things. There are many in this world that wish they had what you have. And it even might be you one day. So soak up your normal of today and be grateful that it is all yours to enjoy.
