As I woke up this morning, I lay in bed thinking of how grateful I was to live another year here on earth:)
I woke up to my purest self, telling myself that this day was going to be great, because it was my birthday. I was going to be nicer to people, tame my ego, and enjoy every moment I had.
It is funny and ironic, how, on a regular day, I could allow my day to be hampered by these types of things.
However, today was unlike the others; nothing was going to effect this lovely day that lied ahead of me!
This I knew, as I was in total control of this day.
If I felt the need to snap at my sister, I would to hold it in (because we all know that a quick argument isn’t worth ruining a day over).
If I felt large and in charge, I would stop my thoughts and be grateful for the body that I have and realize that it could be a lot worse.
If I felt inclined to be annoyed at my boyfriend for getting drunk and not calling me to say goodnight, because his phone died. I would stop and remember that he is off doing an amazing expedition for himself, and his phone dying is not his fault. It is okay:)
These things I was willing to do, because I wanted to create a great day for myself. I knew inside that I would succeed, because I was the one who had control over my day, no one else!
You see, on a regular day, the following situations could possibly be the deciding factor on whether it was good or bad day: a quick bickering session with my sister, negative thoughts about my body, or allowing my ego to fog the view from my heart.
But today, I had fresh and new outlook on life. Everything within this day was beautiful.
Therefore, the valuable point that I am trying to make, is that you are always in control of your day. You may not be able to control others, their words or actions, but you are able to control how you react.
You have 100% control of your mind, which can create good or bad days, or in between.
Be aware of what you are thinking and who you are thinking about.
THINK GOOD THOUGHTS!
Try to be the bigger person in certain situations. I know that it can be very hard at times, believe me, I deal with it almost daily. I have the largest ego when it comes to the relationship with my sister. I always have to be right! However, we all know that I am not always right! Nevertheless, allowing my ego to get in the way of our relationship is very childish.
So whether it is your birthday or not, try to be better! If you want better, you will do better:)
Each morning you have a fresh start! And even if you slip up here and there (which is inevitable at times), try hard to pick yourself up and change your mind set.
CREATE a great day for yourself!!
*The energy you put into your day, whether it results in a good or bad day, is the same. The outcomes are just different! Decide what you want and make it happen! 🙂
