Decide: #3 Decide to Learn

It’s easy to think, to plan, to contemplate and just…do nothing. Often there exists a gap between the thinking and planning, to the actual action of doing and creating. The gap is where we make choices, we decide. And often, we spend ages in that space just cruising along.

So, decide.

This post came late, at a weekend that I was completely floored by a flu, cough, sinus headache and nausea. It’s interesting how a common cold can morph into something that brought me to a standstill. So I looked at what my body could possibly be telling me.

Decide: #3 Decide to Rest
Resting means giving myself time to evaluate or ‘switch off’, in this case. To stop constantly chewing on issues in my head. It required asking for support when I couldn’t do it all alone. More importantly, it required me to trust my own body to heal in its own time.
Being a go-getter doesn’t mean having to be on the go all the time. It means, also proactively, taking rest breaks to take stock of everything.
Whatever time you get to read this post, is likely an overdue reminder for you. It is no coincidence. So, decide.

Making Mornings Series: #10 Making Mornings a Celebration

This grew out of a series to be posted on a board. It served as a reminder for me to intentionally create the mornings I want, in many different ways and being.

After taking on different types of mornings, trying different things that work or don’t work for you, everyone deserves a pat on the back.

Making Mornings Series: #10 Making Mornings a Celebration
I celebrate the fact that I get a new morning, well.. every morning. We worry about the day ahead but technically, it hasn’t started. You get to create it for yourself the day ahead, whether same-old-same-old or something new.
When the new day counts as one of your blessings, and you learn to have gratitude, isn’t that in itself cause for celebration?
