This morning I saw a post about how it was National Happy Hour day and I wondered why would or should we limit happiness to an hour of a day? Why would or should we limit happiness to an hour on certain days? Why would or should we limit happiness to one hour when we know that this is the day that the Lord has made, shouldn’t we then rejoice and be glad in all of it rather than just an hour? It’s always interesting to me when ideas or thoughts like this come to mind and especially when it happens to coincide or challenge the way I try to live my life with Happy Today! Happy Today is always right. Happy Today is global. Happy Today is a decision. Happy Today can make today awesome. You might wonder what I mean by that it is always right, it is always right because no matter if it is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it is always today. You might even wonder what I mean by Happy Today is global, it is global because with international dateline and different timezones, no matter where anybody is if you say Happy Today you are right because it is today for everyone even if on the calendar it’s actually yesterday or tomorrow, for each person, it is still today. An example of that is right now it is Saturday at 6:41am where I am, it’s 1:41am Sunday in Australia, it’s 2:41pm Saturday in Ireland, and so forth but if I were to say Happy Saturday I would be wrong in Australia or if I said Happy Sunday I would be wrong in Ireland but if I say Happy Today, I am always right. So are you ready to start a trend of Happy Today? Not just for an hour but every hour so that we don’t limit ourselves to Happy Hour or Happy Hours but instead we decide because it is a choice to have a Happy Today! I remember when I used to work in an office drawing on my window the following because in my mind there was no reason for today not to be Happy Today! Let’s keep our focus on the right things so that we can have a Happy Today! We have breath in our lungs so Happy Today! How we respond to what happens to us is a choice and so no matter what happens to us Happy Today! I even went to the extreme to create calendar templates where I replaced each day with Happy Monday, Happy Tuesday, Happy Wednesday, Happy Thursday, Happy Friday, Happy Saturday, Happy Sunday in order to help everyone remember that no matter what day it is, it is Happy Today!
