How are you today?
Feeling positive, or a bit down?
I don't know about you but it feels easy sometimes to get into a negative frame of mind.
The sun isn't shining or it's even chucking down with rain, you've put on (more) weight and feeling a bit unlovely. You don't feel like your life is going anywhere?
If I wake up with those negative thoughts in my head, already worrying about what life will throw at me, then I know I am likely to be fairly pessimistic all day.
So - for me the lesson is - try and have a positive thought in the morning, and everything else will look more optimistic.
That rain? Well the sun could come out! Fingers crossed anyway!
That weight? Well today is the first day of the rest of my life so I could start today with a healthy breakfast?
Feeling unlovely? I ask myself ... 'what is beautiful?' I determine not to judge myself by other people's standards and think more about inner beauty (kindness, love, peace, gratitude, friendship and so on and so on....) rather that outward appearance. I try to remember that I am unique and ask myself 'do I really want to be like anyone/everyone else?'
And smile ... that I believe will always create an intangible 'beauty'.
Life not going the way I thought it would? Well maybe I need to change my direction? Maybe the course I'm on is not the one for me?
Perhaps TODAY is the day I'll start a new life! Or at least start to think about it?
Or, if I don't want to do all that thinking maybe I'll just start with ....
'Today I will enjoy each moment ... it's the only July 13 2021 I will ever get!'
