Each day on the way to drop off my 4-year-old daughter, Harmony, at school, we talk about everything that will fill her day to make it the best day ever. And rather than saying goodbye, we simply proclaim, “Best Day Ever.”
The fun began when Harmony was only 2 and liked to tell us that today was the “Best Day Ever.” It was her, not us—but the words were powerful.
As I was driving away from our “Best Day Ever” proclamation a few months ago, I realized that this ritual we have is purely for Harmony to have the best day ever. I enjoyed the joy of the conversation, but I had never even thought to incorporate the “Best Day Ever” mantra into my own day.
So, I gave it a try and started 2018 by constantly referring to it as being the “Best Year Ever” and each day as the “Best Day Ever.” By no means do I get through every day and feel like it has been the best day ever. But I start each day like it will be, and share in the proclamation with Harmony, not only for her to have the “Best Day Ever,” but for myself as well. It fills my heart with hope and happiness each day.
This seems so simple, yet it has made a profound difference in my life, and I wanted to share it with you. I hope you have the “Best Day Ever.”
