It’s still coming down…
I’m sitting in my kitchen this morning drinking my coffee and looking out the window at the fresh snow that keeps falling. Just yesterday my husband and I were sitting on our deck, commenting on how the trees were getting their buds already. The sun was shining and it had warmed up enough to feel like Spring was coming closer.
I could be disappointed with more snow and to be honest I may have an eensy bit of that going on, but for now, I choose to focus on what I ‘can’ change.
And that can only be found inside me.
Sometimes it’s hard to make that shift in your feelings. If you can find some inspiration around you, something that can give you a just little lift. The momentum will begin easier.
Out of the corner of my eye, I see it. My inspiration!
It’s a normal orange on the counter but I zeroed in on it’s one small sweet leaf. That little leaf perks me up faster than anything. Why? because it’s a sign of growth and renewal and…..
And that’s all it took. Now I have a good start to get me going today.
There are always ways to help inspire yourself. For me, a lot of it has to do with how accomplished or creative I am being. This helps me lift my emotions to a higher level quickly.
So what else could you do to start that ball rolling?
1: You can look around right now and see what needs to be done. Well since I’m still in my bathrobe, I guess the first step is showering and getting myself put together. Although I do love jammie days, I don’t always feel the most energetic while having one. So first things first. Get cleaned up!
2: Look around at your surroundings. Hmm, I’m thinking some general quick cleanup should do the job and make me feel better as well. You know, putting stuff back into their place. That always creates more of that feel good feeling.
3: Ask yourself, “What can I do today that will make me feel like I’ve accomplished something good.” It doesn’t have to be big. It can be something like picking a drawer to organize. And that is exactly what I will choose for myself today. That way if the day goes into a different direction, I’ll still feel accomplished if I get that one thing done.
4: Make a plan for some fun. I find that the long winter gets I can get lost in that hermit mode and leave the house less and less often. I think that is okay if it’s in balance but not ALL the time.
So today I think it would be a great day to see a matinee with my kids. Captain America is playing and I know they would love to see that movie! I’m getting out of the house and spending some fun time with my kids… Win, Win!
5: Take notice of how you feel. I mean really focus on your feelings. I think everything we do has an effect on us. If we make it our intention to enjoy or at least attempt to be productive in a positive way, we are setting the foundation for an uplifting change.
