The Best Day Ever


This post has been inspired by Vh1’s Best Day Ever satirical 5-minute segments between shows. So, just what do I mean by the best day ever? I had a think about it and they are people out there that live every day to their fullest and wonder what sets them apart from normal people. Why is it that they are some out there that have great days and everyone else just can’t wait to see Friday roll around for happy hour? Well, in a nutshell it’s all about perceptions. Some see the world around them as a happy place to live in and full of opportunity and live life fully every day.

Ever thought about how excited you get around the holidays or special events? You can tweak your mind so that you live every day like this. Yes, I know, hard to believe but it’s true. That feeling you get around a favorite holiday, like say Christmas, can be duplicated. I’m not saying that you have to go out and buy presents for people every day of the year, but you can bring up those same feelings and emotions on a whim. You can control your senses and feelings simply by putting yourself in a certain state. For example, can you picture yourself receiving a brand new, $2,000 laptop on your birthday in your mind? Of course you can, now capture the emotions. How do you feel? Are you joyous, overwhelmed, or positive minded?

By playing a mini-mind movie such as the above in our heads, we can control our state and if we control our state, our emotions can be invoked at will. Ever feel really sad or depressed, try laughing out loud or think about your favorite joke, you can change your day just that quick. The more you practice this, the better you will get at it.
