Each year on June 8th, National Upsy Daisy Day is set aside to encourage you to face the day positively and to get up ‘gloriously, gratefully and gleefully’ each morning.
Every day is a gift and if we remember that as we rise each morning, it will help us carry a good attitude throughout the day, whatever the day may bring us. Life is full of challenges and bumps in the road, and it is our attitude that helps us over the bumps and through the challenges to move onward with a smile.
Give it a try. Be grateful and thankful for what you do have such as a bed to sleep in, food to eat, friends, and family. Try a smile and see how it feels. It may surprise you that it feels good on the inside also and how other people will smile back. You may just brighten up their day! Upsy Daisy!

- Give to yourself! Start a savings account or jar for a rainy day.
- Call a friend you’ve not spoken to in a while. Let them know you’ve been thinking about them. Take time to catch up with them.
