I wrote previously about one such myth, the myth of the bad day. I explained why it makes no sense to believe that certain forces are at work to conspire against us and create a bad day. Yes, certain events that occur may be bad, but the day is not doomed from the start or beyond recovery.
Well, there's a corollary: the myth of the good day.
People who think in terms of "good" days and "bad" days are really giving up way too much responsibility for their lives. They forget that they are the ones in control, that they are responsible for the meaning they place on events and that they are the ones who choose how to respond to circumstances, good or bad.
We certainly can and should enjoy days when things go well. We can pause and smell the roses, admire the sunset or savor a delicious mocha. But never fall for the myth that our days are beyond our control, good or bad.
We must take ownership of our time, our priorities, our goals and our life. Actually, all days can be "good" days because all days can have meaning, beauty and purpose.
How about you? Is that true in your life?
