Today is a good day for a good day!

wisdomedwife

As you venture out into the world today, keep that motto in your head. You may not be in control of what transpires throughout your day but you are most certainly in control of how you respond and react to things. Be mindful in those choices. Do not allow things that are not in your control such as traffic, the weather or the behavior of others to ruin or control your day…after all, Today is a good day for a good day!
