The Best Day of My Life

Wisdom comes to us in surprising and wonderful ways.

At the end of each weekday morning show on San Diego radio station KYXY, either Jeff or Jer make the statement “this has been the best day of our lives.”

What a powerful statement. The truth is that this is the best day of my life. It has never happened before, and will never happen again. Sometimes I allow conditions to influence my rating of the day. How was the traffic coming home? Did I get everything done that I wanted to?

I can recognize that this was the best day when I stay in gratitude–for the day; for everyone I met who brought me a blessing (because the truth is, everyone did); for the amazingly wonderful people in my life who love and support me; and for the conscious awareness of my oneness with Spirit.

This is not a Chamber of Commerce approved day in San Diego. It is cool and rainy, and the drive home might be a bit of a challenge. But when we stay in the awareness that nothing outside ourselves can really bring us lasting joy, and not allow anything to disturb our joy, we can recognize this day, and the next and the next, as the best day of our lives.

Feels good, doesn’t it?
