It’s Been Said

Make it a good day!


I got that at the bottom of an email from my friend SooAnn a couple of weeks ago. I think the email was about setting up pictures for contacts on her Blackberry, I’m not sure. What struck me was that it wasn’t “have a good day” or “hope your day’s good,” it was “(implied ‘you’) make it a good day.” I determine how my day will be based on my actions and reactions. It’s kind of a Carpe Diem kind of thing, and makes you want to march around your prep school’s yard and stand on your desk.

It’s a good reminder.

    I get it…Dead Poets Society. I love a good obscure 80's film reference.

    I believe that quote is a great application of the Psalm, "This is the day that the Lord has made; we *will* rejoice and be glad in it."
