Since becoming a life coach, one of my go-to thoughts when I wake up in the morning is, "Thank you for another day. A new beginning. How can I make it better than yesterday?" In past, I often would wake up and focus on thoughts about what I was dreading or what I wish I had done differently the day before. I still have a tendency to start there, but I am aware of this orientation, so I am able to gently move those thoughts to a more positive and empowering place. By doing so, it helps motivate me and set the trajectory for my day from a kinder and more hopeful place.
So, dear ones, instead of waking up and allowing a barrage of negative thoughts to overwhelm your being, gently pull your thoughts back to a place of gratitude for what is and what is possible. Maybe it is thanking the universe for the gift of a new day which allows for doing something a little differently than the day before, or asking the question of how you can make today a good day. I often hear my clients say, "I hope today is better than yesterday." Or, "I hope something good happens to me today." Imagine if you came at it from the perspective of how YOU can create the good, and not be waiting for someone or something to make it good for you. It's the difference between being proactive and reactive. One helps put you in the power seat, the other puts you at the whim of the world.
