BEEP BEEP BEEP !!! Oh, the sounds of mornings throughout the world.
Is it so shocking so many millions of people are angry, grouchy, touchy? With everyone starting their day in a shocking manner, basically being barked at by an LED @$$hole ordering you to get up and get to work, no wonder there is so much discord.
You may have to live with this morning demand, but by reading this, I know you are on the right track to being your own time-boss, your own responsible party. You are on your way to INDEPENDENCE from, well, from others. This cannot be overstated.
Last night I went to bed a little later than normal and just couldn’t fall asleep. I didn’t worry about it because I knew morning would arrive when I wanted it to. Stop and think about that. What would you give to have EVERY morning like a weekend morning? Even better, it wouldn’t be a two-day-rush-to-complete-everything weekend. Your life can become more comparable to a LONG weekend, or a week vacation…and even better, no thoughts of the work piling up when you return to the office.
Last week I was thinking about how amazing it is that we lived (spent) wisely in our past to have the independence we have now. NOTHING is worth as much as having your time to yourself. Specifically, owning your time and essentially your life.
So this morning when I noticed the sun was up and shining in my windows, I thought, “yeah, last night’s sleep wasn’t great, but I own my time, I own this day, I can just lounge here for a while and relax, read my book, breathe and when I get up, then I can do everything or nothing. Priceless. Absolutely priceless.
As I’ve stated before, the tone of your day, etc., may come down to your morning. I was lucky to work from home for years. Each morning I was lucky enough to sit in my spa for 15+ minutes. It was always wonderful to be outside and chillin’ in hot water. I would become even more relaxed and then start (more likely ‘continue’) my work day. I’ve always said, “if everyone in the world had a tub of hot water to sit in each morning, the world would be a much calmer place.” Maybe we need a “national spa program.”
My thoughts for you, for everyone, is not as complicated, or as wise as The Miracle Morning. My thought is, just find a little bit of calm, or calming in your morning. Find the gratitude for the great things in your life. Tackle your day to make the greatness even greater.
