So I made it to day 2, was it harder today? Sure was! Was that expected? Yes! Hal had mentioned in his book so I was prepared . Why was it harder? I asked myself. Clearly it was partly to do with my husband starting work early and his alarm going off before mine. Although only by 15 minutes , He's a jump out of bed morning person generally, in my mind 15 minutes sleep still mean a lot to him your up your up. Looking forward to genuinely having a mindset like this! He started to make noise around the house and I decided on the spot that although Hal says not to meditate in bed I would, see me rule breaker already! I told myself for a second it's fine you can do this you won't go sleep! I knew I was lying to myself, so I got out of bed woke myself up properly and sat quietly on the floor, the light was on , I didn't close my eyes (just in case) I grabbed my iPod and listened to a guided meditation for ten minutes. When I finished in perfect timing my husband came back into the room to say goodbye.
Now I have the house to myself (well apart from the children and dog who were quietly sleeping still) so downstairs I went to finish my miracle morning. This part was the part I really looked forward to. I'm glad you got up or you'd have missed this opportunity I told myself with a smile.
During my exercise routine today I listened to a motivational soundtrack called Dream. Whilst not totally relevant in context (it's a basketball motivational speech) the message was good and strong.
On my preparation day I had joined the Facebook community group for the Miracle Morning and introduced myself and asked if someone wanted to be my accountability partner. Lots of people welcomed me and two people agreed so now I have some like minded support. Think this is going to be crucial for my long term success. The power of social networking!
Today I intend to do some serious planning and taking action for the next 12 months and my future life and now I have extra time to do it! Thank you Miracle Morning!
