morning thoughts

Today is one of those days where I have to try hard to see the beauty and blessings and good things that really are all around me. I wish I didn't have these days. I wish I was better at seeing the good and being content.

But since wishing doesn't generally help much with creating actual change I am going to try my best to come up with things to do that may actually help.

~Like getting out my camera and trying to capture the fantastic morning light on my way to work.

~I am going to start writing morning pages. Every day. At least 20 minutes. This will help me feel better and more productive about writing (which I haven't been doing much of at all, and which I have been feeling guilty about not doing) and hopefully get my days off to a better start.

~I am going to recognize and make more use of my awesome friends and family. Reach out to them more. Spend more time with them. And I am starting by getting sushi tonight with my friend Becky.

~When something is wrong I am going to try to self sooth first instead of immediately reaching out and trying to get someone to fix it for me.

~And I am going to make chocolate chip scones.

PS. I am SO looking forward to this long weekend, even though I am not yet sure what I will end up doing with it. Hopefully yours will be full of fun and sunshine and other good things.
