How to Create the Day You Want  

Our meditation group met last night and the topic was, How to Create the Day You Want. We each added our own suggestions and as the list grew,  I thought it's such a great list why don't I share it.

Don’t talk for the first five minutes when you wake up.
Think about what you want the day to look like.
Think about what you want to bring to the day.
Think about what you want to give to the day.
Set your intention to be present in each moment.
Set one goal per day so you don’t get overwhelmed.
Be aware of nature – even the smallest thing such as a butterfly.
Try something new.
Move your thinking from “I have to” to “I get to.”

And after all was said and done, we concluded with these words,
“May I be healthy and strong. May I be safe and protected. May I be peaceful and free from mental, emotional, and physical suffering. May I be happy and joyful. May I be patient and understanding. May I be loving, kind, compassionate, and gentle in my ways. May I be courageous in dealing with difficulties, and always meet with success. May I be diligent an commited to my meditation practice and to helping others along their spiritual path. May my true nature shine through and onto all beings I encounter.”
Now, I hope you have a great day!
