Good Mornin'!Posted Thursday, February 14, 2013, at 7:37 AM
Sometimes I'll say "Good Morning" to someone only to get a response akin to "What's so good about it?" or "Yeah, right" or some such neutral or negative response. I guess I'd have to admit that some days I feel that way. Some mornings it takes a great deal of effort to just get going.
For instance, at the office one morning this week I was having a rough time getting motivated. I was surprised that the first three co-workers I came into contact with were having the same "slow" morning.
I think we all have those days.
I've come to believe that it does not matter if we struggle to get going in the morning; what matters is how we handle that sluggishness. One way to overcome it, I believe, is to literally list the things we are glad for that day. It's kind of like "counting your blessings."
Here are just a few of the things I am glad about today:
As I said -- these are just a few of the things that made it a "good" morning this morning. It's not an exhaustive list, but you get the idea.
So ... When morning comes and you feel like it's going to be "one of those days," change it around by calling to mind those good things you face each day. It'll help you face the day with a smile, and may well put a skip in your step.
