How I ‘feel’ after that first cup will stay with me the rest of the day. I’ve learned over time that when I embrace it as a gift I have a much better day!
Following you will see four reasons that my days start a bit better. I’m glad I could share them with you. I wish you peace in your heart and stars in your eyes, for if they are shining there can be nothing else but peace.
1. That first sip of coffee in the morning…. Sip it with the knowing that the day will bring blessings… as long as you are open to them. Welcome them with an open heart.
2. We’ve all heard of an “Attitude of Gratitude”. Yet, many do not realize just how important it really is to be grateful for not only the good, but the bad, ugly and even indifferent. Keep that door open for all of life lessons that come to you…no matter how they show up. Each and every one has made you the person you are today. Celebrate that!
3. Beauty… There’s days I can’t even see the beauty in myself. Yet, I can see it in a flower or butterfly. If I keep looking for the beauty in those things eventually during the day I see it in myself as well. Start your day searching for the beauty, and before the day is over your own beauty will find you.
4. Embrace each moment of your day with a bit of wonder. Never take a breath for granted as “it just is” because you’re alive. Wonder brings the magic out in life.
Blessings ~ Gratitude ~ Beauty ~ Wonder ~ and a healthy dose of Love… Magic! May your day be filled with Magic! May your blessings find you and fill you with gratitude to match the beauty that you are and the wonder you bring to this world by simply sharing your love.
