Last night I had insomnia, was restless, couldn’t sleep, and had racing thoughts. I started to get upset that tomorrow I would be too tired to go to Yoga in the morning and enjoy the beautiful 70 degree sunny day we had planned. I started to get angry that I couldn’t fall asleep which increased my anxiety and restlessness even more.
In the morning I woke up and was tired, since I only got about 5 hours of sleep. As I was sitting in bed nursing my daughter at 6:00 a.m., the sun began shining through the window towards us. As I felt the sun on my face I took a deep breath in and said to my husband…
With each new day brings a blank slate.
A chance to experience, explore, learn and grow.
A chance to connect with the ones you love.
More memories to make…
Joy, laughter, and in today’s case, lots of sunshine!
My husband grabbed my hand and said AMEN.
Although I was still tired, I jumped out of bed and said, “I am going to Yoga!”
I am going to enjoy this beautiful day the best I can and will get an amazing nights rest tonight.
With those positive affirmations and positive outlook, I was able to shift my entire mood and perspective. So simple yet so powerful, and not always easy.
And now I get to enjoy the most perfect day I would’ve otherwise missed out on due to my own negative thoughts.
