This morning I opened a jam jar and it was empty.
Someone put the empty jam jar back in the fridge.
My challenge today is to de-program my brain to not let this set the tone for the rest of my day.
You know how it is: one thing irritates, then your brain is conditioned to notice other irritating things and before you notice, you’re halfway through a crappy day full of irritations.
Not gonna let that happen today.
There is power in mindfulness, but it takes practice to recognize it, to focus in on it.
I’m not good at it, but I’m better at it these days than in recent times.
For example, earlier I chose not to let the dilly-dallying children bother me, interrupt my coffee time. My job (pack their lunch) was done, their job (to get out) was not.
They know what the consequence is for later school arrivals.
I choose not to let the messy kitchen bother me, and marvel instead at the clean basement which I decluttered yesterday.
And, it’s Tuesday, my favorite day of the week!
How is your day going so far? Let’s help each other focus on positives today. 😉
