Thought for the day…

Remember I said that one positive thought in the morning can shape your whole day? Well here I am again to inspire you to think positively. How many times do you wake up in the morning and think arrggghhhh I really don’t want to get up today or here we go again? Or your get tiny hole in your stockings and then say to yourself, well that’s going to run – and it does. Or you look out the window and see its raining and think I am going to soaked in that rain- and you do. Or there’s not enough milk for a cuppa and you think that’s going to ruin my day – and it does.

Do you see the pattern?? I reckon that happens A LOT (well it used to happen to me much more often than it does now). Don’t you thinks it time to change that? Here’s a tip – you need to think it before you manifest it.

I used to wake up and hope that it was the weekend because then I wouldn’t be at work. These days I am up and moving with much less drama and if I am honest, most days I move slowly because I really don’t like waking up with my alarm. Nowadays, getting up is much easier because I set my day up positively in my head before my feet touch the ground.

Take me right now. My current situation is that I am working as relieving teacher so I get a call in the morning and I go to work. Its not everyday but can be or it can be sporadic. I can tell you that I secretly wish for a day off sometimes and other times like today I seriously wish I have permanent job. That wasn’t first thing this morning though – nope! Today I didn’t want to get up at all. I just wanted to stay in bed, be warm and maybe sleep more but seriously knew that I wouldn’t sleep more because I had to be the motivator for Miss Highland Dancer and the Karate Kid. SO, when I get like that I start the thinking process and change my attitude. I go through social media and find some positive quotes that mean something to me at the time. I just go looking for a happy thought and I may post it to Instagram. This boosts me up and I am ready to tell myself to have an amazingly productive day. My next thing is to make a list (I like lists). My list had 5 things on it that I can achieve today. Just FIVE (feijoas, CV, groceries, outdoor stuff & job hunt). No point trying to over stretch myself – something always comes up and then your list is right out the window. (I will talk about lists another day).

Then I set my happy positive thought. I CAN DO THIS.

Guess what? It worked I dropped the feijoas to school (we are not fond of them but we seem to have so many), I tweaked my CV, did the grocery shop, stained the garden furniture (main chore) and then surfed the net for teaching jobs. The upside of that is I feel really cool right now because I have actually ticked off the jobs that really needed done.

So when you wake up tomorrow morning and think holy crap I have a meeting today or here we go again – make into something more positive!! I am just going to throw a couple examples at you to give you an idea.

  • That meeting today is going to be soooo quick.
  • The I don’t want to go to work – I can’t wait to see Nancy at work
  • Hole in your stockings – I will shave my legs and get those babies out today
  • Soaked in the rain – I can shop for a cool umbrella ( love shopping)
  • No milk for a cuppa – I will pick up a coffee at my favourite cart

Think about the good stuff and the rest will fall into place!! I know its not always easy to find a positive in a negative but you will never make a change if you don’t try!

Well I am going to leave this right here for you and wish you a great night! Be safe, be positive and be you.
