Day 66 - Todays Miracle Morning nearly didn't happen ! Shock ! After an amazing night sleep but late going to bed, my alarm went off and I snoozed it! Oops ! Is that because subcionciously and consciously I was replaying the words and pattern of ''oh no you went to bed late, that means your going to get up late, it's the kids first day back at school , they won't want to get up either etc etc ....'' Well in answer to my own question certainly yes and just as I shared the other day I need to be mindful of my words all the time but especially before sleep!
Now at this point I'm being a little bit harsh on myself as actually did get up and get going all be it with a struggle, but I still did, and I still did start my miracle morning and yes I did have to act like a slightly crazy mummy to get the kids up in time and moving but they did and all was fine in the end. The important thing was I started , I didn't give up!
Once the kids kids were at school I managed to have a moment to reflect and write this blog entry. Often especially this time of year we make resolutions and plans and a few days in things haven't quite all happened for us as we expected, or it feels a bit uncomfortable. For example after a fun time during the recently holidays putting our mind and body back to a school routine and timescales can feel challenging. Just turning on my social network feeds this morning gave me confirmation I was not alone in this. But the kids did need to go to school, I sat thinking about what is my message , what if any were my learnings or insights given to me today.
To start with the obvious not have those negative thoughts ( I knew this of course!) and then in all the doom and gloom available on social media this morning I was reminded of the quote above and there was my message. It doesn't matter how many times we start and then possibly fail or feel we have. The important thing is to start.
For if we dont start either again or even at all , if we believe we can't, we shouldn't , we don't deserve it, we won't be able to maintain it, it's not perfect, we're not ready , I don't have time .....(you guys can fill in the blank maybe not today but if this comes up later for you). If you will allow your greatness to not shine out into the world.
So so no matter the challenge how big or small , make a start!
