Day 35/100 #100daysofseedsoflight

When I drop my kids off at school in the morning, as they get out of the car, I say to them, “Make it a great day!”

As opposed to “Have a great day!” And this is the reason why. ✨
One phrase suggests that we have a hand in creating the outcome we desire. The other suggests that we are passive as the events of the day are happening to us. ✨
Of course, I want my kids to have good days; I hope that things go smoothly for them and that they feel strong and confident walking through the world. And I know that what any of us can control is our attitude, our perspective, our way of being in the world. Yes, I want my kids to experience goodness in their days, and I want them to learn to MAKE goodness in their days, in the way that they see and respond to the world unfolding around them.
