As you awake, take a gentle breath in and out. If you immediately have a discouraging thought refrain from admonishing yourself. Just say out loud, “ On this glorious morning I’ve been gifted. I set the intention to design a great day. I release any subtle negative expectations about today.”
Realize that you decide, right now in this moment, how you want to feel and what you want to experience today. Start the day by acknowledging that it is glorious and full of unlimited potential.
Then release the influence of the past and any pull to the future determined by the past. Next plant yourself firmly in the present moment. How do you want to feel today? Successful, happy, confident, capable, energized, peaceful? Who do you want to be today? What positive steps and choices to you want to take?
