Just another great day to be alive – Mr A.
This sentence was announced with energy and enthusiasm during my high school math classes on a relatively regular basis. This phrase was subconsciously penetrated in to our minds along with the Pythagorean Theorem by our motivating math teacher, Mr A. Even now as adults, say this phrase to a fellow alumni, and they will respond in turn with another of his catch phrases, “Dazzle ’em!” (or Jobin’s favorite – “Betcha Boots!”) Regardless of if it was a great day, or if it was another day full of high school turmoil, for a moment, we were reminded that it was a great day to be alive and we could focus on something positive rather than what “X” equaled.
How often do you take a minute to remind yourself that is it a great day to be alive?
So often we push through our day, bogging ourselves down with negative thoughts of what we aren’t succeeding at, what we should be doing better, what we haven’t accomplished yet. Why do we do this to ourselves? Instead for the rest of the week, when things are bogging you down, try saying this affirmation to your self:
“Self, today is just another great day to be alive. I am open and receptive to all the good and abundance in the universe. I love and approve of myself. I deserve the best and I accept the best now. I am blessed beyond my fondest dreams. Golden opportunities are everywhere.”
Lets try to keep things positive! And to Jobin, The Wizard, and West Coast Brooklyn – It is just another great day to be alive so get out there and dazzle ’em – “protractas” optional
