In her words:
“I have a group of friends I play a game with called “Best Day Ever.” When something good (or bad–that you decide is Perfect in its learning opportunities!) happens—we find that moment in every day that makes it the Best Day Ever—we text each other.”
Find reasons in every day that make that day the Best Day Ever. Create a small group that sends each other their “Best Day Ever” (BDE) moments each day. I love this idea. It’s a great way to shift your focus from the bad in your day to the good. If you’re looking for those perfect moments, you’re more likely to find them.
What’s my BDE moment for today? Flowers in my yard are finally starting to bloom despite the less than stellar weather we’ve been having. I’m writing this while jammin’ to some groovy reggae. Later, my hubby and I are going to begin work on our new website – more on that later! Yesterday was a true BDE. We had sunshine for the first time in over a week here and I spent the day with some of my oldest and dearest friends at a baby shower. There was a moment where we were all sitting outside in PERFECT weather, surrounded by freshly mowed fields, on spring-colored Adirondack chairs, talking and laughing like old times. It was perfect.
I might have to start Tweeting my BDE moments (guess I need to learn a little more about Twitter!). It would be a good way to keep that positive focus. I’d love to hear your BDE moments too. You can share at Twitter.
There is another blog post that truly inspired me this week but I think I’ll save that for later. It deserves a post of its own. Meanwhile, what’s your standout BDE moment of the week?
