EnJOY your day.
A few years ago, in the midst of an imploding career and the fifth life reinvention, the common polite phrase, “Have a nice day” struck me.
I suddenly realized that the day — in all its promised messiness — was going to be what it was. I could sit passively and hope to ‘have a nice’ one and begrudge anything ‘not nice’ about it.
Or, I could be proactive — and ENjoy my day.
I have the power to infuse any day or moment with JOY.
So, every time I’m tempted to offer the passive, non-committal phrase “Have a nice day” to the person behind the counter or the other end of the phone, I try to catch myself and say, “Enjoy your day!”
