It’s a new day! Every day is a new opportunity to create your life the way you want it to be. It is entirely up to you as to how you want your day to go. If you carry negativity from one day to the next you will get caught in a never-ending cycle of frustration, stress and unhappiness. But when you choose to be done with it and start fresh, you can then begin to build the life you want one moment at a time.
Our thinking will dictate how our day will go because it will either make us feel good or it will make us feel bad. There is an old saying “never go to bed angry”. How you feel when you go to bed is how you are going to feel when you get out of bed. Not only that, but how can one rest peacefully when their bodies are full of negative energy?!
Every thought you think and every emotion you feel paves the road ahead. Negativity is nothing but a waste of time – your time – especially if the life you are seeking is a happy one. It is understood that some days are not going to be that great and that is okay. We will never stop having good or bad days, but we can take control and try our best to create better days ahead. A better day begins the second you wake up. It will be up to you to choose what lies ahead. And yes, this can be accomplished with very little effort. All it takes is the right attitude – a positive attitude.
Regardless of what happened today or yesterday, do your best to let it go before you go to bed. Just be done with it and know in your heart that better days await you. If you find it difficult to let go, try some deep breathing exercises or a sleep meditation. Both will release the tension you are holding onto and both will help you sleep more soundly. Upon waking, remind yourself the only time that matters is right Now. There is no need to go back and reminisce about the prior day’s frustrations. Stay focused on what you are doing now; in the present moment, and fill your mind with positive thoughts.
A great way to start your day is to stay in bed for a few extra minutes allowing yourself to feel the essence of all that you want and desire. If you do this on a consistent basis, your mind will automatically sync with those positive feelings on its own and before you know it, you are bouncing out of bed every morning with joy, energy and happiness!
