The most common closing phrase in my emails is “Have a great day“.
Starting today, however, I’m changing that to “Make it a great day“.
It just popped into my head and the main reason I like it is that it’s a lot more empowering to say “Make it” rather than just “Have“.
It’s sort of “I hope the surrounding world, of which you have no control, has the good grace to grant you a great day” versus “You have the power to change the course of your day, as well as how you choose to deal with what is thrown at you“.
It’s a subtle difference in wording but a very different perspective. And I just love it.
So make it a great day, everyone!
