Statistically speaking, today is “supposedly” the most depressing day of the year. It's a Monday, holiday bills are coming due, Winter is only 1/3 over (with just over two months until th start of Spring), most people have already blown their New Year's Resolutions, and this year, we have the added benefit of the news media telling us how depressed we should be, because our economy is horrible.
Sorry, I'm not buying into any of it! Your state of mind is your choice – it's not governed by the events that unfold around you. You can never choose the things that act upon our lives, but you can choose the way you respond to them. And if given the choice – I recommend choosing optimism and control, rather than pessimism and chaos.
So instead of looking at the “depressing” aspect of today, look at it as the first day of the rest of your life. Choose to see the opportunity that unfolds before you – your opportunity to create “greatness” in your life and the lives of those around you.
Start each day with focus and ground yourself in the vision of the future you have for yourself, and you will create it.
Choose happiness and make it so.
