What Day was Bono talking about when he sang "Beautiful Day?"

"Its a beautiful day, don't let it slip away" - Bono from U2.

I know I cross post a lot since we are connected on different sites but Id rather you see something motivating 3 times than never at all.

The song, many of us know. You should listen to it in VEVO or YouTube.

Here is a question: WHAT day was he talking about?

I know the answer: EVERYDAY

Everyday is a beautiful day, there is so much we can do. Too many times we focus on what we cannot have, see, say or do. I challenge you to look at this day, with all its hassles and struggle, and not find a single beautiful thing about life.

80% of our thoughts are NEGATIVE.

Negative Adj. "consisting in or characterized by the absence rather than the presence of distinguishing features."

So simply put we focus 80% of our time on what we lack!

Change that ratio, friends! Focus, instead, on what you do have, in mind, spirit and heart.

We have so much to be grateful for that we are so used to them that we take them for granted.

They are always there. Its what we lack that we focus on because it is absent.

You know what else is absent in that 80%? Your happiness.

Your choice, control your thoughts, control your life, control your future.
