Good Morning Monday’ers!
Its another Magnificent Monday, full of Magical Potential, no?
At least that is from my perspective! Its a new day, a NEW week and one with unlimited potential. ARE YOU READY?
If the answer is no, WHY NOT?
I decided a long while ago I didn’t want to live a life by accident, or by default. I want to CREATE the life I want, down to the day, the MOMENT.
How do you do that, you ask?
did you ask that?
Well, this is what I like to do:
What are your strengths? Do you like to journal? Sketch maybe? Are you more of an internalizer? Do you do your best pondering on a brisk run? Muller over coffee type?
Find your space and your little carved out quiet time and decide what would make your day kick butt!
DON’T EXACTLY KNOW?
Well, FIND OUT!
Its actually mind boggling to me how much we might NOT know about what we really want or like or need. Find a quiet Saturday afternoon and ask your kids what they would like to do. IDUNNO usually tops the list.
Adults too! What do you feel like doing today? UHHHHHH not cleaning???
It’s a start.
Okay, you do NOT feel like cleaning house! COOL, lets not do that than. Now what?
Ever been there?
Spend a little time asking yourself what you are feeling, needing, wanting.
Do you want a little fun? What is Fun for you?
Do you feel tired or bored? Do you have anxieties to deal with? Do you need time alone, or do you need time with friends or family? Do you miss the beach, or a lake or outdoors?
Do you really want to start that creative project you are always putting off?
I feel, woman especially, are so busy wearing all the hats that we sometimes never take them off long enough to ponder our SELVES. Who are WE when we are not wife, partner, mother, sister, daughter, employee, home keeper, and dog walker.
Who are WE when its just ME or YOU alone with your self ness?
That is a very good question and one we will be taking a closer look at. Autumn is here and for us that means slowing down, (well until the Holiday’s arrive) cooling off and soaking in all the pumpkin aromas.
Some reflecting on how the year is going, what is left to accomplish, what is needed, what is wanted… and then charge back up and GO!
That is today’s Monday Mindset for you. What mindset do you chose to start your week and day off with.
If that is too overwhelming, and it often is, just try and chose what your morning mindset is. What do you need to be your focus just for this morning?
I chased my middle-schooler all over the house this morning saying HAPPY to him. He wanted to be annoyed with me but I saw his dimpled cheek smirking, ” you’re a dork Mom” is what I got but he went from the Monday Blues to HAPPY. I hope it sticks!
I am dealing with some pretty angry triceps from my first month of indoor rock climbing so a few better stretches, perhaps a better salve, and focus on balance are a good one for me personally. Also I always love to charge up a new week with a focus on HAPPINESS, FUN, and for today, ABUNDANCE. my car needs gas, my kitchen needs supplies, my Anatomy class chapter two test is due, and my inbox is waiting for me at work today. Abundance of energy, focus, answers on isotopes, and gas money can just COME ON DOWN!
This is what I mean. Spending just a few moments, gosh more if you have an abundance of them, can go a LONG way to preparing your mindset for a new DAY, WEEK, MONTH, SEASON… you name it!
HAPPY MONDAY FRIENDS.
