I’m sitting here writing my last few posts before I knock off for the weekend, and Travis Tritt’s “It’s a Great Day to be Alive” comes on. You know what, he’s right.
“And it’s a great day to be alive
I know the sun’s still shinin’ when I close my eyes
There’s some hard times in the neighborhood
But why can’t every day be just this good?”
I’ve had some hard times, and I’m sure I’ll have more, but sometimes I’m just so glad to be alive. Some days I can see the goodness in the world and it makes me so happy that I was tough enough to make it here. There is still so much left to my life. There’s so much more that I can do. Everything is possible. I love feeling that way.
Before I sign off for the weekend I just want to send a hug and some love to all of you. I want to remind each of you that no matter how bad it gets, no matter how far down you are right now, tomorrow is the day it may all turn around. You’re life is never going to be 100% happy, no one’s is, but every day is a day that might be better than the last.
You can be wonderful and amazing. You can change your own life, and maybe you can change someone else’s too. Life can be amazing. Honestly, nothing super special has even happened today, and yet I have so much to be grateful for. I’m looking forward to tomorrow with a smile on my face. Hell is behind me and heaven is all around me.
Today is a good day to be alive.
