Waking up on the first of many rain filled spring mornings it’s a little refreshing.
Sure, I’d rather the sun be shining but how else will the flowers grow & the grass stay green?
It can be all too easy to moan and groan on days like today. But instead of doing so I encourage you to make your own sunshine.
It’s quite simple to do actually.
Think on the sunny side.
Dance in the rain. Jump in a puddle. Fall asleep to the sound of it coming down.
No matter the day, the reason or season there is always something to celebrate. New life, a new day, a start of something new.
Don’t let yourself get caught up in the dreary, weary weather. Remind yourself that life IS in fact what you make of it. There are many things we complain about that we can control… So do me a favor & do something about it.
If you’re not happy with a situation, ask yourself what can be done about it. Make an effort to make that change. Some are easy, others not so much and others still we have no control over. But in any situation you have the CHOICE to decide how you’ll react & handle things.
Make the choice to focus on the positives. Take the chance to make a change otherwise you’ll be stuck. Look on the sunny side because there is ALWAYS one there… Even if you have to dig deep…
It’s hard to believe it’s May 1st already. I’m sitting outside enjoying an early morning cup of coffee, listening to the birds chirping sweetly, thinking about the day ahead.
Lots to do. Lots more that I HAVE to do. Even more still that I WANT to do.
All this thinking this early in the morning has the potential to become overwhelming. The thing is though, you can’t get caught up in all of that. It only becomes overwhelming if you let it. But why do that to yourself?
Yes, it’s important to have goals & meet deadlines & accomplish the “to-dos”, “have to-dos” & “want to-dos” BUT if you allow yourself to focus only on all that’s to be done are you leaving time in your day to just live?
Are you taking time to enjoy your day & all the beauty that lies ahead in the unexpected? Or are you so wrapped up in the deadlines that you find yourself saying where’d the day go?
Do me a favor. Just stop. For a minute stop & just be. Enjoy that cup of coffee
Take a minute to appreciate what you do have. Take a second to appreciate those around you. Just be.
