“…I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today.” said Piglet.
By the way, happy International Star Wars Day!
Today I want to share with you a few observations I’ve had regarding starting my day with Piglet’s quote in mind.
Here’s what I discovered:
~It’s great to receive happy surprises of unexpected gifts from friends and strangers–and even The Universe;
~It’s even better to receive boosts in self-esteem and gratitude that comes from helping another who may be struggling–even if the help seems to be a small, trifling thing;
~Best of all is to wake up feeling curious, with hopeful anticipation of what good thing might come along that day.
Awaking with a positive expectancy is the best and greatest gift I received this week. I’ve noticed that I was more buoyant and cheerful each day. I was better able to handle disappointments–the motherboard on my laptop crashing, several projects at work being more difficult and challenging than I’d anticipated. Naturally these things were frustrating but I found they didn’t get under my skin; I was able to shrug them off, focus on what I had to do, and then move on. I also discovered that I was more effective and productive this week, in spite of the setbacks and obstacles.
I’ve proven to myself that it really is true that waking up with and keeping a good thought in mind and holding onto a positive attitude does pay off! It really works!
What have you discovered during this week’s challenge of waking with Piglet’s thought in mind and holding it throughout the week? Feel free to share in the comments below. Thanks!
