Don’t Die on a Tuesday

Posted on: Oct 29, 2013

Categories: Living the Dream, Motivation

Everyone will have a best day, and everyone will have a worst day, but the majority of your life will be spent on what I call “just another Tuesday.” Many people spend their Tuesdays walking around like zombies, treating it like another boring day they just need to “get through.” But I want you to appreciate and live with 20% more gratitude on every Tuesday you spend on this planet.

As we approach the month of November, I want to consider what we have to be thankful for, and right now, I am thankful to be alive and Living the Dream with you.

I didn’t plan for Living the Dream to become my life motto. I didn’t start saying it because it was catchy — I starting saying it in my real life because I believed it. I am Living the Dream, just like you.

After realizing the amazing opportunities I’ve had in my life, I began saying “I’m Living the Dream” every time someone asked me how I’m doing. I don’t say this out of blind optimism or because I’m trying to pretend to be something I’m not. I say it because it’s a constant reminder of how blessed I really am.

Growing up on food stamps and in a dysfunctional home wasn’t my dream, so I did what I could to change it. What part of your life do you need to change so you can live your dream?

What hard choices do you need to make, either in the physical world or the emotional world we all live in, to surround yourself with healthy people and the objects you need to make your life more fulfilling?

Remember, I’m not talking about blind optimism. Everyone has a worst day, and everyone has a best day. What do you have to be thankful for on this Tuesday?


Living the Dream,
