Write it in your heart that every day is the best day in the year. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
You can’t argue with Emerson. It makes sense to try to wake up every day feeling that the day ahead is the best ever. The secret to achieving this can be summed up in one word: gratitude.
But for many of those busy girlfriends in your life—the ones holding down jobs, raising kids, caring for grandchildren or even aging parents—all that ‘mindful gratitude’ doesn’t seem high priority. Plus, now that’s it’s March, those ‘gratitude’ holidays—like Hanukah, Christmas and Valentine’s Day—have passed. And the promise of summer and sunshine are still a ways away.
So March is the perfect time to play the gratitude card (pun accidentally intended). Send one to a girlfriend and make her day—even if it is just a day in March. And best of all, it’ll make your day, too. Which is why the best day of the year is actually… (everyday) today!
