[fusion_text]I don’t automatically jump out of bed each day feeling inspired, motivated and ready to take on the world. Some days I have a reel playing of a massive to-do list and it hits me square in the face even before I’ve opened my eyes.
Hands up if you’ve experienced this when you wake up in the morning!
Two hands if it’s every morning!
It’s a phenomenon, this reel-playing busy thing but I’ve got a little insight for you and it came to me very recently.
You see, I’m a believer in mindfulness, slowing down and limiting the chaos in my life and I’m really good at showing others how to do it as well. However, there are some days that I forget to practice what I teach and all hell breaks loose (in my mind anyway!).
But rather than taking my historical approach of beating myself up about it and thinking ‘I teach this stuff and should know better’ I pat myself on the back and say “Hey girl, at least you’ve realised that things are a little out of whack, you just need to chill out, take a breath, slow it down, put on some music and remember that everything is OK”
And this morning that is exactly what I did.
I am a continual work in progress (not in the sense I need to be fixed) in that I love to learn new ways to make my life ever better. I like it like that. It’s called growth, evolving and it’s rather magical.
This mindfulness stuff takes practice, it doesn’t usually happen overnight, particularly if you’ve spent years out of your mind and in busy to-do list mode, however it can change if you want it to.
You are an evolutionary being and you can change anything you want at anytime you like. How’s that for some kick-ass control!
When you wake each morning, become more and more aware of where your mind wanders off to and if you can, rather than reel off your to-do list for the day, take a deep breath and imagine how great the day will be.
Remember this takes practice but it is so very worth it when you start to the see the great day that unfolds before you.
This is where you really get to understand the power and influence you have.
Give it a go.
You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain.[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

Today is a new day. Never before has there been a day like it. Never before have I lived it. I choose how it will play out and how I will be in it. Today is a brand new day.
