Kevin McShane — "Watch your thoughts, they become words"

Tuesday June 28th, 2011

I got up earlier then planned this morning, by accident, but I think the reason was beyond my control. As I am sitting here on the 7Th floor of our hostel, looking out upon the city of Frankfurt, Germany as the sun slowly rises illuminating the city, I reflect on my trip. What an amazing trip it has been. Its hard to believe that three weeks ago I was in Corvallis, Oregon preparing for summer and a trip to Eastern Europe, and now I am watching a gorgeous sunrise in Germany after the most life influencing 2 weeks I have ever had. I have been in 4 countries, each with a different economic state and different in countless ways. Yet, through out my whole experience I have just concluded one simple fact- regardless of what you do, where you do it, or who you are, every day can be a good day. You can be a multi-millionaire from Europe, a baker from a small village in Macedonia, or the driver of a flashy Mercedes Taxi in Germany, or even a student athlete from Oregon State University… and no matter who you are, every day has the potential to be a good day. For some, a good day is measured my money, or material objects, and to others its how productive they are in their professional field. Some may view a good day by how many people the help or if they see their family, and some measure a good day by how many meals they are able to eat. The sun rises the same everywhere across the world. Every morning it shines its glowing orange and yellow rays across the horizon and lets us know that “ yes, here is another day- now make the most of it”. Regardless of how you measure you day, remember this:

Every day can be a good day

I’m coming home
