Make time for quietness today. Whether you spend that time meditating, praying, being alone with your thoughts, contemplating, or some other practice, take the time to do this today.
It helps make space in your life; it gives you a chance to breathe and just be. It gives you an opportunity to get some perspective on your life and see it in terms of a picture that’s much bigger than you. And, it gives you a chance to process things that may be weighing on you so that you can make your peace with them, let them go, and move on.
Your homework today is to give priority to Quiet Time first thing in the morning. If you’re new to this and don’t quite know what to do, you can sit quietly and gently think about the things in your life that you’re grateful for—the small, simple things are just fine.
Another technique is to listen quietly to music that uplifts you or softly gaze at a picture that makes you feel good.
Extra credit is to do this first thing every morning and last thing every night before bed.
You go directly to the head of the class if you do this first thing every morning and last thing every night before bed AND if you spend the time focusing on thanking the Universe for all the Goodness It sent your way, regardless of the kind of day you had, and then thinking about some of the things for which you are grateful!
You can do this, I know you can!
I’m so proud of you!
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
