A New Day
It is now Thursday morning. This week has gone by very slowly. I feel like I have barely left my apartment because I don’t want to spend money but it is so beautiful out. I’ve been getting back into my routine and feeling more like myself that I have in a while. I read a quote that someone posted on their instagram story yesterday that read:
"Life is so subtle sometimes that you barely notice yourself walking through the doors you once prayed would open.”
Now this resonated with me. I find that whenever I am in the height of a particular emotion, I read something that sticks. We as humans can sometimes rush through our lives to hit a particular goal or milestone, that we forget about the present moment. I know I have to remind myself to be fully present in everything I’m doing all the time. It’s hard, and takes work but gets better everyday. I know I’ve mentioned before that we have to allow ourselves grace, but this morning I’m really having to repeatedly tell myself this. If we can give other people forgiveness and the grace they need, why can’t we do that for ourselves?
I’m automatically in a better mood when I check something off my to do list or force myself to get out of my head and DO something. Taking action instead of pondering the thought of it always helps. That may sound funky. But, taking risks can be a good thing, no matter how small it may be. We all have our own pace to life and that is what makes us who we are. Am I yawning right now as I write this? Yessir. But I also mentally feel fantastic because I got the chance to make my bed, read, and meditate this AM. Incorporating those activities is a consistent goal of mine every week and I’m starting to make it a habit which is very rewarding. I’m proud of that.
To boost my energy level even further, next up: time outdoors.
