Feeling better


“To seize your mornings is the equivalent of that sound financial advice to pay yourself before you pay your bills.”
-Laura Vanderkam

Today is a new day!

I’m feeling so much better.

I’ve actually showered and gotten dressed. Laced up my shoes and have made up my mind to get busy.

It feels good!

I’m not sure how many times I have to learn this lesson, but we really are in control of how we feel. I have learned that talking to myself instead of listening to myself is the key that unlocks my dreary apathy. Apathy is a thief of joy and it seems ninja sneaky. Feeling under the weather is a perfect excuse, for a pessimist like me, to go ahead and embrace all those old rotten thoughts that get me into trouble and lead me down the path of depression. It’s hard to find my way back sometimes but honestly I just couldn’t take another wasted day. Thank God!

The hard part is disciplining myself to wake up and make up my mind EVERYDAY to fully live with energy, gratitude and purpose. So many mornings have given birth to somber days just because I let myself choose a somber, grouchy and lazy attitude in the morning. We are constantly reminded in the bible how important time spent in the morning is to staying spiritually fresh. Psalm 90:14 (ESV) says,” Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.”

If I choose to begin my day focusing on the steadfast love of God in my life, how can I be anything but glad? How can my day unfold as anything else but valuable?

There are NO successful people who don’t have an early morning ritual. It seems the more I learn about successful people and their attitudes, the earlier and more joyful are their mornings.

Which means, if I’m going to be successful I’m going to have to renovate my mornings.

Despite all of my ailments and insecurities that have been bringing me down lately, I will choose today to be glad. I am choosing to be productive.
And I will be thankful and mindful of all that I have instead of dwelling on what I don’t.

I’m curious, do you have a morning ritual?? I’d love to hear from you as I focus on creating my own.
