How many mornings have you been awakened by the alarm clock and grumbled because you had to get up? You feel angry that you can’t get just a few more moments of sleep. You are unhappy that you have to leave your comfortable bed. You don’t want to get up. You don’t want to take a shower. You don’t want to fight that traffic. You don’t want to deal with your co-workers.
This starts out your day in a state of negativity. By having these thoughts, you are sending negative energy to your day. You are sending negative energy to the morning traffic. You are sending negative energy to your co-workers. You are sending negative energy to your whole day.
What kind of day can you expect to have when you are sending out these negative thoughts?
You get ready to leave the house and can’t find your car keys. You finally find your keys and rush out the door, hitting your knee on the door. You limp out to your car and head for work. You are miserable and unhappy. You growl at drivers who get in your way. Traffic is a nightmare and you are going to be late to work. You finally arrive at work. You have a disagreement with a co-worker. You just can’t get the report you are working on to come together. Nothing is going right. You make it through the day and stop for a bite to eat. The waitress accidentally spills your drink on your favorite shirt. You finally drag home miserable and depressed. Life sucks! You have the ability to create a joyous day, every day, with only a few minor adjustments.
When your alarm goes off, spend a few moments and take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Imagine the wonderful day you will have and how grateful you are for it. Imagine how wonderful the warm water will feel on your body while you shower. Send Love to your fellow commuters and the traffic you will encounter. Send Love to your co-workers. Send Love to your work day. Send Love to all you will meet that day. Be thankful for the day you are about to experience and open to the wonderful encounters you will have. Fill your day and everyone in it with Love.

How does this change your day?
You get up feeling relaxed and ready to meet the day. You step into the shower and enjoy the warm water from the shower. You wear clothes that feel and look good on you. Every thing goes smoothly. You are out the door and into your car in plenty of time for the drive to work. You are patient with the other drivers. You arrive at work with a smile on your face, which causes your co-workers to feel better too. Your day goes smoothly, that report just comes together with no problem. When you go for dinner after work, your waitress gives you exceptional service. You arrive home happy, content and grateful for the wonderful day you just experienced.
