Greetings & Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a good, cozy, & warm weekend. If you didn’t, I hope that this week is a good one for you. Today’s Monday Motivation is a simple reminder to make your choice. We choose how we feel, whether that means we choosento stay angry or anxious, or if we choose to breathe, let it go & move forward into the positive, exploring different ways to give yourself what you need to press on.. You can choose. How are you choosing to feel today?
I woke up this morning thinking about choosing my emotions & regardless of the stress of the times. Waking extra early to catch a bus with my child at 6am at below zero weather, or shoveling 4ft of snow while watching my neighbors share their snowblowers, all while awaiting to get the call that my car has been repaired….that among other things, it’s needless to say that there are things are tough to swallow some days. But when I sense a mental temper tantrum trying to come on, I ask myself, “How do you want to feel today, Dee?” “What is the lesson in all of this? What are you here to learn?” “What do you need from this right now?” These questions bring me back to the reality that it’s not the cards that you’re dealt, but how you play the game. We decide how we play with every choice we make. Are we perfect & make the right choices about everything on a daily basis? Nope. I’m no stranger to the mental self-beat down about things I could’ve done differently. What’s important to consider is how those choices makes us feel & what it does to our environment & those in it. Make a positive choice today to choose Peace & Joy over anxiety & fear. Choose optimism over pessimism. It may not be easy as we love to stick with what we know, but there is always growth when we make the changes necessary to live in a more positive light. What’s your choice for today? Love yourself & be yourself. Peace & Love ♡☆
