“…I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today.” said Piglet
Piglet, Winnie the Pooh, and the rest of the gang can be so profound in their simple little statements. With the above quote, Piglet nailed it in one.
Sometimes, I find myself waking up with my stomach knotted as I fret over all I have to do that day and whether or not I can get it all done. It casts a pall over the morning, at least, and I start the day with a lower energy level. And I’m certainly not enthused and rarin’ to get going!
Most of the time, in spite of my early morning worry, the day turns out reasonably well–I’m usually productive with a few happy surprises coming along to brighten the day. In my end-of-day reflections, I wonder how much more I would have enjoyed the day if I didn’t start out with worry which sapped my energy.
I invite you to join me in challenging yourself this week with having your first thought upon waking be Piglet’s quote: “…I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today!”.
Write this sentence on sticky notes, put it in your mobile devices, and adhere it to other places where you’ll see it often. If things start to go downhill during the day, pull out this quote and remind yourself that the day isn’t done and there’s still exciting and happy things in store for you. Then keep a lookout for them!
You can do it, I know you can!
