Have you ever noticed that whatever happens in the morning sets a tone for the day ahead? You might stub your toe walking out of your bedroom, jumping around, swearing on one leg. Then you'll drop your toast, avocado side down, then spill your toothpaste on your shirt, then get all the way to the car & realise you've left your phone inside, then seem to get every red light the whole way to work..sound familiar?
That's not to sat this happens every day. This might happen once a week, or on Mondays, because you've told yourself how much you hate Mondays. For most of us, when we wake up, our minds begin to first assess how we feel & then we begin to play over the next steps for the day; all the extracts of our morning routine, from getting out of bed to getting to the front door. Or if you're going through a rough patch, the weight of the world can sit heavily on your chest only a few moments after waking as the impact of reality hits you like a tonne of bricks.
I guess what I'm trying to say is start each day with a grateful heart. Life can be difficult sometimes but you will always have something to be grateful, always. Just a bit of food for thought for todays post but let me know what you think!
