Something great is going to happen today -- I can't wait to see what it is!
Around the Corner and Current Specials:
"....This was the very first good morning that I sent to this
newsletter group. I reprint this once a month for all of our new
readers and to remind our "alums" about our good morning routine."
I can't think of a better way to kick off your 'Good
Morning' routine than by sharing how I start my mornings. Four
years ago I started this simple routine - unaware of the profound
impact it would have on the days and years to come. I know it was
the first seed in my personal Change Your Life Challenge.
I wake up and sort of stumble out of bed toward my coffee maker.
Prior to those first few sips I'm really not that awake and don't
think about too much. (I know, I know-- I should give up the coffee
-- but one thing at a time!) Anyway, I get my cup of coffee and I
either walk outside or walk to the largest window in the house. I
look outside and say a silent 'Thank you' for the day that is ahead
and the fact that I am blessed to be here and be a part of it. I
stand 'in silence in my thanks' for a couple of minutes and then
say, with heartfelt conviction, 'Something great is going to happen
today... I can't wait to see what it is!' And then I begin my day.
You know what the best part is? Something great happens each and
every day. And because I am aware, I never miss it. Sometimes it is
major -- a new business deal or an unexpected great opportunity.
Sometimes it doesn't come in a fancy package and might be a
beautiful bird that lands, an e-mail from a friend or a stranger,
the smile of a child, the pleasure from a 'great idea', or the joy
that comes from complimenting someone. But sure enough, life brings a gift to my doorstep each and every day. And it happens because I anticipate it and am open to it.
Stand up. Go to your nearest door and step outside. Say a silent
thank you - or shout it aloud. 'Stand in thanks' for a couple
of minutes. (Hey... if you are reading this and thinking 'Gee,
that's a lovely idea...' but have no plans of getting up-- GET A
MOVE ON AND GO OUTSIDE.)
Something great is going to happen today ...I can't what to see
what it is!
And as always, don't forget to start your day with a heartfelt: "Something great is going to happen today... I can't wait to see what it is!"
And when ending your day ask yourself:
"What is one more thing I can do to make today matter?"
