Here is a quote from a little notebook/journal I’ve been keeping handy to jot down thoughts.
“Each day I want to celebrate ‘little successes’ so that I know I am doing a couple good things every day. I want to make sure that I define success, though.
A successful day includes:
- Time spent in God’s Word
- A prayer said for someone else
- A house that is better than it started!
- An occupant who is better than when she woke up”
This definition of a successful day will allow me to reflect on each day and to relax knowing that I am not asking too much of myself. For goodness sake, I didn’t even require my to-do list be all checked off by my bedtime (I believe this to be so because I would never go to bed otherwise…)! However, I do want to learn to reflect on each day and to be content with the happenings of the day. What makes your day successful?
