I woke up, so it’s a great day!
For the last little while, I have been working on waking up with the attitude of: “I woke up, so it’s a great day”. It’s still not automatic, however I am finding I am in a happier mood to start most of my days. I am not saying today will be better or worse than yesterday, rather accepting what comes, and looking forward to it. The good and the bad, from yesterday is left there, tomorrows worries can be handled then. Today it’s wake up, smell the fresh air, maybe with the haze from forest fires in Russia and the US mid-west, not as fresh as usual. But still a lot cleaner than many major cities on their best day for air quality. The birds were chirping from the Japanese cherry tree outside. It’s cloudy and we might get some rain, but that is nature, and the plants need moisture, so let it rain. If you start your day with a good attitude, it seems the rest of the day goes smoother, so tomorrow when you wake up, give it a try. Just don’t expect to feel like the king of the world first day, so give it a month, soon you will notice a change in yourself, and how you interact with others. You night even cause a few more smiles, which makes everyone happier. Have a great day.
