What’s the happiest day in your life?

Some of us will be reminded of the special day with your loved one(s), the day you say “I love you”, your first date, your wedding day, your honeymoon or your time with your friends and family.

Some of us will be reminded of the day we achieved our goal, the day you break the record, the day you made your best deal, achieving your business goal.

Some of us will be reminded of the day we’re rewarded, maybe your birthday, and everyone throws you a surprise b’day party, when somebody give you what you have longed for, or being promoted on your job.

And some of us will be reminded of the day we gave, the day we’re able to help somebody, we ministered and made impact to other people’s life.

But what Joyce Meyer’s answer in her article surprised me, she said…

I have decided that today is going to be the happiest day of my life! Tomorrow I will make the same decision, and the day after that and so on.

Joyce Meyer

As psalmist said,

This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad.

King David (Psalm 118:24)

Notice, the ‘will’, having a happy day is usually the result of our choice, our attitude toward whatever happens during the day. Some options:

  1. Make your day with your special-one very special, simply spending time together can be useful.
  2. Make small goal each day, something you can easily achieved, simply a decision to grow and make improvement every day is something that you can be happy about.
  3. Reward yourself for what you have achieved, no matter how small it is, look at how far you have changed/grown so far, not about how far to go!
  4. Bless somebody, give somebody, even a simple encouragement can be a blessing for others and a big impact for them.

Final word,

I believe we are much better off to decide that every new day will be our happiest, rather than searching for that one day in life that we can look to as the best. Today is God’s present to you, so unwrap it and be happy today!

  1. Robert, I just discovered your blog. Really inspiring stuff. Just this morning I woke up dreading a long layover at a particularly boring airport. After reading this post, I decided that I will make the most of the time by bringing a good book and maybe doing a little writing.

    Thanks for making my day better already!

    Hi Maria, thanks for the encouragement.
    Glad that this simple message can help make your day better! Have a better and better day everyday!

  3. I just decided that this is going to be the happiest day in my life. Or, at least, one of them. Although the “positive” outlook is healthy in a lot of perspectives, it’s okay to have an off day, or to have amazing memories.

    Take care,
    Alex

  13. This was wonderful! I just discovered your blog from Tina Su’s site, and just LOVE the articles here! I’ve read 3 so far, but decided to comment on this one.

    As I was reading the title, I was thinking, “I think just about every day almost… just about… no really… really…. yeah…. just about every day has and will be my happiest.”

    I’ve never seen the first quote by Joyce Meyer, but this truly resonated with me. It was a click to my squash my uncertainty when I was trying to figure out which day was my happiest. *smile*

    I was laughing a little because as the human mind tries so furiously to do, I was trying to find the “right” answer!!!–lol!!!! All the while, I was certain that each day including today, yesterday and tomorrow are my happiest regardless of what’s going on, I was still thinking I had to remember back to one day!!!!!!!!!!!! -lol How fun!!!!!

    This is a wonderful article!

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Hugs,
