It’s Earth Day and another Monday morning, so here’s a little motivation and optimism to start your week. The saying usually goes, “It’s a good day to have a good day,” but I say AIM HIGHER! Why not have a GREAT day?!!
Spring time is my favorite season as everything starts blooming and birds are singing. I enjoy stepping outside to see all of the buds on my perennials, and just anticipate the colorful flowers that will soon emerge.
It’s a shame we can’t all take a lesson from nature, and not rush everything. I have tried to be better about this as the years go by. I used to think having a fibro-flare was my body’s way of telling me it was time to slow down and rest.
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” ~ Lao Tzu
Breaking negative thinking isn’t easy. But it’s not impossible.
It’s “March Madness” but that doesn’t mean we all need to live the part. Viktor Frankl said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Those stimuli are all around us in our daily lives – and can result in physical pain or emotional trauma.
Pain is inevitable. We have the power to choose our response.
