How are you doing today?

When someone asks you how you're doing, how do you respond? Do you just pass off their question as a greeting and just say, "Fine" or "Okay"? Do you launch into a laundry list of complaints you have about how you're feeling or what's wrong with you or how you were doing fine until that obnoxious Mr. Jones ruined your day?

Or, maybe you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick. Mrs. Glick was a very special lady. My friend met her when he was a teenager. She made a real and positive impact on his life.

Every time my friend asked Mrs. Glick how she was doing, Mrs. Glick said softly and sweetly, "I'm thankful for one more day." She lived to be 103 years old, greeting each day by being thankful for one more day.

So my friend, when asked how he's doing today, says like Mrs. Glick, "I'm thankful for one more day."

The next time someone asks, "How are you doing today?," even if you don't feel it, say, "I'm thankful for one more day" and keep saying it until you Live Positive like Mrs. Glick.
