Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.
Life is seldom a smooth journey, so much so that the only predictable thing about life is its unpredictable nature. You will hardly ever have two similar days. As such, each day brings a fresh challenge. How we navigate these challenges and make the most of the opportunities that come our way goes a long way in defining whether it was a life well spent or not.
Barring the odd exception, there are no perfect days. Even rarer is a perfect week. Each day has its own ups and downs. You might have to do the same boring chores every day, and you might also have exciting projects lined up. And yet, most people choose to focus only on the lows whilst downplaying or completely overlooking the highs. We always wonder why things had to go south, while never being grateful for the good things that happened or for circumstances not being far worse.
Ultimately, you need to keep reminding yourself that while some days may be terrible and others may not be as good as expected, each day has something positive about it. It might be something as simple as getting your breakfast served on time. Or being fortunate enough to have someone waiting for you when you get back home after an exhausting day. These are blessings that we often disregard, but our lives are unimaginable without them. Acknowledging these little gifts not only makes life so much more bearable, but also lets our near and dear ones know what they mean to us.
Ancient philosophers stressed the importance of being grateful for every day of our lives. One such quote from an unknown author goes as follows: “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”
