Morning Maneuver

We die daily. Happy those who come to life as well.

George MacDonald

Every day is a disaster, to one degree or another. Things explode ,or they implode. Things break down and refuse to get fixed. Other things don't work right. Things don't go the way you want them to or expect them to. You tried, you failed. So what's the solution? The solution is: tomorrow.

I used to have an early morning radio program in a big city. I went on the air before most of my listeners were awake. As they came to they relied on me to tell them what day it was, what time it was, what the weather forecast was for the day, etc. I would also remind them frequently that they had another chance to do great things. I would pepper my announcements by saying "Thank heaven we have another day on our hands." Then, since I was in a big city with a lot of commerce going on I would say things like "Make that sale!" "Win that case!" "Pass that test!" "Sign that contract!"

People would often write and tell me how much they appreciated that gentle boot in the rear as they were getting ready to leave the home and head out into the jungle.

When you get up tomorrow remember that you have another day on your hands, and make a mole hill out of that mountain you made today.

I think that's why the song from Annie is always so popular; tomorrows are always good things to have; to know we can try again and maybe this time get it a little more right

I like the sentiment! It ties in with your recent entry about sometimes you just have to walk away for a moment. Sometimes "sleeping on it" is exactly what we need!

Speaking of...I think *I* need to sleep on it!

DB, keeping a positive attitude I believe will get us through anything. My personal motto has always been "No One Or Nothing Will Get Me Down" and it's been a lifesaver for me in trying times. Take care. Arlene (AJ)
