An early morning in Ashville, North Carolina
If you live within a world of discontentment, you will find it wherever you go. Only by changing your consciousness will you start to see positive results in your life. –Louise Hay
Reading Louise Hay’s new book, “You can create an exceptional life” I am learning so much about the power we have all been blessed with.
How you start your day is how you LIVE your day.
Think about this for a moment. Too many people start their day with “Oh Sh*t! It’s another day and I’ve got to get up damn it!” If you have a lousy way of starting your day, you are not going to have a good day ever– it’s not possible. If you do your best to have the morning be awful, your day will be awful.”
I used to be one of those who would push the snooze button while groaning… Ugggh I have to get up.
With some changes in my life lately, I know that if I focus on the negative or worry about what might happen — I will certainly achieve exactly that– the negative.
So, I have started a new ritual daily. I snuggle into my bed a bit while taking a conscious moment to say my prayers of thankfulness. Thankful that I have a comfortable bed to sleep in and rest and thankful for a new day that is starting. I remind myself that it will be a wonderful day and I will be surrounded by loving people who will inspire and encourage me.
That simple start to my day has helped me have wonderful mornings then wonderful days.
I am not such a Pollyanna that I think my day will be without hiccups. However, I am learning that today is a perfect place for me to learn and to grow. And it all starts with a good morning.
I am finding it a bit challenging trying to muster up the energy to cull through my MANY photos of my recent trip to Ashville. But the colors of fall inspire me and make me smile.
My dear friend tossed on some Pink so I could participate with Pink Saturday at Beverly’s. She is not only beautiful on the outside but has a fabulous heart as well!
(Thanks Beverly for letting us steal Jeanne– she was the BEST hostess ever!)
