Making Every Day Count

Sometimes it feels like we are stuck in a rut, experiencing the same events over and over. It gets so bad sometimes we feel like we are trapped with the mundane – wake up, go to work, come home, have dinner, go to bed, then do it all over again the next day.  This can happen in any aspect of our lives, including our personal, family, and business areas of our lives.

So, how do we get out of our rut?

Think Spring…

I posted this on Facebook last week:

~I love April! Always reminds me of new beginnings! I’m ready to begin again…

Spring is a great time for us to think about renewal. Renewed focus… renewed relationships… renewed outlook on life. Think Spring…

Blossoming trees, budding flowers, brown grass turning green, warm weather that we cant wait to get out in. The world renews itself during Spring and so can you! Start enjoying your life again.

This Spring, think about the part of your life that you want to renew. I suggest just one aspect to start with – personal, family, business, or whatever part you want to improve. Then, make a conscious effort to set aside the mundane, even if it is something litte. For example, if you feel stuck on the “wake up, go to work, come home, have dinner, go to bed, then do it all over again the next day” treadmill, then add something to what you already do to make it more special. Pitch a tent in your living room and tell the kids you’re “roughing it” for dinner. Go for a walk, taking a different path than you usually do. Have ice cream for dinner. Send out postcards to your clients to wish them a Happy Spring. Sing really loudly in the car at a stop light. Surprise your loved ones with a treat when you come in the door from work.

It can be a silly something, a yummy something, or any something you can think of! Whatever you can think of that you enjoy and those around you would enjoy also. Think of it… then do it! This is how memories are created and special memories never fade, are never boring, and we recall them fondly.

Remember this quote… it will help you in your renewal this Spring:

“What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.” (

Enjoy this Spring and look forward to the new things you will experience. Every day is important, but every day is also unique. As you refocus and renew this Spring, keep the above quote in mind. Below are a couple more quotes to help you on your journey:

 Happiness is a distinctive song only YOU can sing…….
~ Dodinsky

No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress,
you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.
~Tony Robbins
