Good morning ♡
If anyone had a chance to see this morning’s sunrise, what a view! Unfortunately, I couldn’t capture a picture but it was absolutely gorgeous! A deep firey orange sun burst through cloudy wisps, casting a pink, orange, & blue wave over the sky, its rays shining through the spaces in the clouds. It gave me that dependable sign that no matter what happens,the sun is always shining. I also felt it very befitting for my post for today’s Thoughtful Thursday, to not cry over spilled milk. Wipe it up, learn from the mistakes. & do better next time.
Last night as I was thinking of the saying, “Don’t cry over spilled milk,” my big hot cup of tea slipped out of my hand & spilled all over the stove. Needless to say I was annoyed. My wind down time was cut short as I wiped up the stove, moving it from the wall & moping the floor. Thankfully, I had a good friend who called me right after & reminded me not to get mad. I wasn’t mad, just annoyed. But just as oxygen gives life & can ease muscle pain, deep breaths calmed me while I cleaned up, & I began to think about the ways I could have avoided this. “Do one thing at a time, Dee. Not everything has to be done at once.” I was trying to make my tea, turn off the stove, & pick up the cup to turn off the kitchen light. Yea, I know. Multi-tasking is great but not in every instance. I soon cleaned it all up & the kitchen looks even cleaner than it did before 🙂
I could’ve whined & complained about the big spill & having to clean it. I could’ve gotten stuck in the annoyance. Instead i focused on what could be done better next time as to make a better decision. In the process, my kitchen was extra clean & shiny. We often get stuck in the mistake or not-so-good choice, & we begin to feel inadequate. We start to think less of ourselves & those negative self talks become louder & louder, drowning out the positive vibrations that are trying to reach us. Just like the gorgeous sunrise this morning, just like my shiny clean kitchen , there is always a bright side. There is always something to learn & grow into. If we don’t cry over the spilled milk, we will give ourselves the chance to feel & see the brighter side. Have a great day my loves ♡ Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆
