I am not a morning person, but I am trying to change my ways. So recently I’ve started getting up very early to walk my dog because I live in a place that’s temperature is comparable to Satan’s butt crack. Even at 4:30am it’s already 80 degrees. Being the caffeinated junkie that I am, brewing coffee in the morning has lessened my Starbucks dependence. Well, only slightly because it’s treat receipt time and I’m a sucker for a deal. Anyway, I take that time to reflect; to get away from all electronic distractions and focus on my deeds for the day. Aside from getting my work duties done, I am really excited to start on my “25 things list”. I’ll admit I haven’t been the most social on my personal time because I’m always around people work-wise. A lot of the time I like to hole up in my apartment with my pup and catch up on IQ-dropping television. But not today! I shall conquer the world and take no prisoners! I’m aiming to have a funny story to share by the end of the day. On that note, I hope everyone has a beautiful Monday and that your day is full of laughter and joy!
I woke up today feeling ridiculously optimistic. (Now I know it’s probably because I got more than 4 hours of sleep, but I’m going to blame this happiness on something else.) I have this sense of everything being right in the world today. I got out of bed, opened my curtains and took in the gorgeous view. My morning coffee was just right, my apartment is the cleanest it’s ever been, and I just plain feel fantastic!
It’s so easy to look at what I “don’t have” and focus on the improvements that I need to make; as a therapist once told me, the should’ve, would’ve, could’ves. But not today! I’m going to revel in the beauty of today and how gorgeous it is. I actually almost want to play hooky at work and frolic in the sunshine!
Alas, I still have responsibilities that I cannot shirk, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do them with a smile on my face! I plan on infecting the people I come into contact today with my great mood! I hope everyone else has a great day too!
