#MondayThoughts: Setting The Stage

Life’s trials will test you, and shape you, but don’t let them change who you are.”

You’re in dreamland and you start to wake up slowly. You have the heavy eyelids that sometimes feel like you need to pry them open. You might yawn and stretch or you might just lay there for a while before you even attempt to get out of bed.

Before we can even get out of bed, our reality of the day sieges us. When think of what we have to do in the moment and the endless list of things during the day. Without even taking one step we have set our day in motion.

Think about every good thing in your life right now. Free yourself of worrying. Let go of the anxiety, breathe. Stay positive, all is well.

Before we step out of bed and into our world, we need to be mindful of our state of being. Do you look forward to your day with enthusiasm and zest or do you dread what you believe awaits you as you go about your day? Remember, although we may do some of the same things day after day, who truly knows what each day holds in store. Do not doom your day before it fully gets going.

I’m going to worry less about the little things and, most importantly, I will allow myself to be happy.

Allow your mind to be free. Free from stress, free from worry, free from anxiety, free to be receptive to inspiration, positive thoughts, divine intervention, creative thoughts. Give yourself a boost first thing in the morning. Claim your victory over the day no matter what comes or what you believe will come (any negativity). Take some deep breaths, meditate for a moment, truly set the stage for a very good day. No day is perfect but no day is all completely bad either.

So, first thing every morning, let’s tune up our mind to be in tune with all good possibilities for the day. Mental nutrition is just as important as physical and and spiritual nutrition. Take good care overall.

Stay inspired and keep rising.

#MondayThoughts: It Depends On What You Choose To Believe

Be relentless in the pursuit of your dreams

Stay strong in faith

As best as you can, be at peace with yourself and with everyone

Do not allow anyone to shame you or bring you down with their self hate

Stand up to the criticism by believing in you

Never lose sight of the light of hope within and the guiding light that leads you

You can do it, you can make it, it can be done

#ThoughtfulThursday: Shift

If people only understood the incredible power of a shift in perspective. To be different you must think, feel, and act differently. Change your perceptions, change how you feel about things, and then take action.
