As we start the new week, it isn’t uncommon for us to look ahead in reluctance to what’s in store. Sure, we may be excited about an upcoming event or looking forward to visiting with loved ones and friends, but there can also be that undercurrent of dread.
It’s habitual so it’s easy to slip into this mindset.
This week, let’s work on this habitual attitude of disbelief that things really will get better, in spite of our desires and our efforts toward improvement. It’s this disbelief that’s underlying the reluctance or dread that’s coloring our thoughts and emotions as we prepare for the week.
Put on a fresh new attitude instead. You may have to ease into it, but find something that gives you joy and a feeling of eager anticipation for the week. Focus on this; hold onto it. Let it infuse your mind and spirit. This’ll help you start the week off right.
Yesterday, we thought about our triggers that spoil our grateful spirit and thankful hearts and today I encourage us to think about what are the triggers that cause us to not feel hopeful and excited about the upcoming week. Also think about what you can do about this.
We’ll be talking about attitudes, expectancy, belief, hope, and the like this week. Let me know if you have any questions you’d like addressed and I’ll do my best to help you find answers.
Your Friend and Pep Pal,
