Numbering Your Days to Make Every One Count – Day 157 of 365 Days to a Better You

Today’s Affirmation

Every single day is a unique day and I treat it that way!

Sometimes, let’s be honest, life is a grind. One of the many cyclical repetitions in our lives that helps add to the gerbil on a treadmill feeling is the seven days of the week. Over time, each the days of the week have developed cultural and psychological meaning in society or to you as an individual.

While there’s nothing inherently wrong with cycles, in fact they can be quite useful considering the history of this world or the universe, as a means of counting our lives they begin to lose creativity and pop.

You’ve heard other people say it and you’ve said and thought similar things. ‘Oh, another Monday!” “Everybody’s working for the weekend.”

This seems like an uncreative, unproductive, and perhaps destructive way to live and think.

What if you found a way to treat each and every day as the unique, once-in-a-universe event it is and do it in a way that show progression rather than the feeling of spinning round and round?

Power Hack: What if you numbered your days, as I’ve been numbering this blog? You could start from any point that makes sense to you – your birth, your 21st birthday, your marriage date, days since some other major event.

For me, this is Day 19,974. I’ll let you do the math. That sounds a lot more interesting and unique than, “It’s just another Thursday.”

Yes, Siri and Alexa can tell you how many days since any date and it’s kind of addictive for an information geek like me. Have fun with it. Make each day the eternal birthplace of possibility it is meant to be rather than freshly trodden habit from seven days, 14 days, 21 days, etc. ago.

Imagine the fun you’ll have when someone asks you what day it is!

The average human lives 25,915 days. Every one of them IS a NEW day. Treat it that way!

Thank you for spending another few minutes of your life reading this blog. I’m honored that it spoke to you, helped you, or inspired you in some way. See you tomorrow for Day 19,975.
