I’m starting this day out in a way that sets the tone for the rest of it. Are you? Some mornings we are on autopilot and don’t give a thought to our own wants and needs. We go about our day as if it can be nothing other than routine.
I generally like my routine. After dealing with such major life changes that routine is a godsend. If however we want to make our lives better, happier… and our days more fulfilled… making an effort to do something different is called for.
What we do can be small… sitting and writing rather than getting up and cleaning. Texting a friend and wishing them a beautiful day rather than reading the news. Taking a walk rather than driving to the store. Whatever you choose to do set your intention to be filled with whatever positive means to you.
None of this costs you anything, its simple and promises to make you feel better. If someone barks at you know that it has nothing to do with you. Silently bless them and continue on your merrier path.
We deserve to create our own happiness, despite our own circumstances.
We want to feel better about ourselves.
We want to enjoy the opportunities life holds for us.
So let’s do this for us!
And for those of you who don’t know me and think this message is a little too Pollyanna for you consider this… I use to say I’d lost everything in my life but my marriage and then my husband died. I’m still choosing to make my life happier because I want it to be and yes I know Jack would want me to be too.
How about you? What are you doing for you?
With love, Cheryl
