Sunny Days Are Here To Stay

Yes, this is correct. Sunny Days are here to stay, that is, if you want them to be. What's that mean? Well, let me explain it this way.

How do you feel when it's a "sunny day" outside? When you first awake and the sun is shining in your window doesn't that perk you up a bit? Now I realize there are days when you are not feeling well, maybe there's been a serious problem you are facing or there are any number of things that nay not be pleasant in your life. But overall with all those things happening to you doesn't a "sunny day" help you to feel at least somewhat better about life? Don't you feel much better then when it's a cloudy and rainy day outside?

I started using this phrase "have a sunny day" many years ago in my greeting to people. It's even at the end of my voice mail message. I'll never forget the day when I was a salesmen and received a call on my voice mail from one of my customers to call him. When I finally called him back the first thing he said to me was, "Sonny are you crazy it's not a "sunny day" here it's pouring down rain outside". I said , "I know it is but you missed my point, you can have a "sunny day anytime you want because a "sunny day" starts in the mind". "Oh, he said, I never thought of it that way" Many times over the years that voice mail message always gets comments.

One of my favorite motivational speakers, Jim Rohn, says you have got to decide on what your philosophy is about your life. You've got to decide what excites you about life. You've got to take responsibility for what happens in your life. You shouldn't just "fit in" to someone else's plan, design one of your own. He says you have to live a disciplined life and stay disciplined so you can get what you want. He goes on to say, It's true, we suffer one of two things. Either the pain of discipline or the pain of regret. You've got to choose discipline versus regret because discipline weighs ounces and regret weighs tons.

I believe that makes things rather clear in my mind. How about you? Whatever you want in your life you must discipline yourself enough to get it no matter what it takes. Now of course that means without harm to another person. Now to add to this, Robert Stuberg, of Success .com says "your thoughts control your life, your life is not controlled by random events, UNLESS you want them to be". " You are NOT a victim of others actions UNLESS you THINK you are" He goes on to say, "if you don't like something in your life, you have the POWER to change it" .... if you desire something in your life, it's in your POWER to change it" Then he emphasizes, "Change Your Thoughts And You Will Change Your Life"

When you get right down to it, we all know life can be very challenging at times, life can deliver cruel punches, life can deal us some big problems sometimes. Usually our only defense is to build up a strong positive attitude to ward off these situations in our lives. We just need to get more "tough skinned".

My wife and I live in a manufactured home community in Florida six months out of the year and we have made many new friends. One of those, however, is one of the most remarkable ones we have ever met. Angie is just amazing. Attractive, fun -loving, usually has a big smile. But Angie has a big and unusual health problem. I've never understood all the details of her illness but it was caused many years ago when she was diagnosed with polio. And it was before they had a cure for it.

Over the years it's affected her whole body. She walks with a cane. One leg is shorter than the other one. One foot is smaller than the other foot. It's painful for her to walk, too. Consequently she's on very strong medication which has to be changed periodically because it loses it's effectiveness. Just recently she showed up at the weekly bingo with velcro braises on both arms. Despite all this she's a real "cut up" whenever you are around her. At home her husband says she really goes through some challenging times but she "bounces back" eventually. He says he don't know how she handles all the pain. He says she's "unbelieveable".

I don't know about you but when I have some difficulties to face in my life I try to think just how fortunate I am to be fairly healthy. If you are not quite as fortunate as I I'm sure there is always someone else you know of that is worse off. Anyway remember what Jim Rohn And Robert Stuberg say and begin to do the necessary things to have a "sunny day" in your life everyday. Good Luck!
