When I woke up this morning, God told me to make today the best day of my life. So, I did. I went to Chickfila for breakfast, and once again, I heard a small voice in my head telling me to pay it forward. Once I got to Chickfila, the lady behind me looked like she was having the worst day ever, so I obeyed God and paid for her meal, too. Do I have the money to do that? No. I am a poor college girl with barely 5 dollars to my name, but I know that God blesses those who obey him. Once I got home from class, I watched a couple episodes of my favorite Netflix show, then I got a wild hair and decided I wanted to cook dinner for my roommate and I. I NEVER cook. I usually eat out or steal leftovers from my parent’s house. I cooked an amazing dinner (chicken alfredo with broccoli and cheese) and now I am enjoying a cold cup of lemonade on my patio. I have to admit, I have had a really good day and all because of that small, sweet voice of God telling me to do so. This has reminded me that I need to start making the most out of each day. Sometimes, that seems unrealistic because some things just don’t always go our way, but honestly, a lot did not go my way today, but I still chose happiness.
Today, my aunt got put back in the hospital because her kidneys are only working 28%. She has been in the hospital for the past month, and Easter was the only day she has been home. I lost my mail key, which is going to cost me a whopping $5 to replace. I got a stain on my favorite shirt. My best friend (who I am attached at the hip with) was hospitalized Sunday night, and I have not seen her since. A lot of things did not go my way today, but I made the most of it. You should, too 🙂 If you are having a bad day, YOU are the only person that can change that, so choose happiness, always.
