Wake Up Call! – Don’t Let Today End…!!!


How you think and feel about your day shapes your experience of life.

It was a fabulous day! Family and a few friends were celebrating the third birthday of my nephew Paxton. We basked in the southern California sunshine as he and his older brother played on the grass after opening gifts. That night his dad texted me to say Paxton didn’t want to go to sleep declaring, “I don’t want this day to end Dad”

It was striking to me because I hear so many adults long for a given day to be over.

I’ve thought about Paxton’s words a lot since then. Someone said they were just the talk of an excited child. What a shame to have such a perspective! Perhaps the real question is why we don’t share more of that gladness of Paxton’s!

So how do you welcome, embrace and be present to today and each day? Do you find such delight, joy or engagement that you are not eager for the day to end?  Imagine you and I each saying that we don’t want a given day to end!


  • Welcome and embrace each day as a gift
  • Be present to the things that engage, energize or challenge you

Notice how each day becomes different when you’re savoring something about it.
