How Do You Start Your Day?
I used to have an issue with fall. For me, it spelled the end of summer and fun, beaches and bathing suits, block parties and cookouts. But as I've grown, fall has become a positive change agent rather than a negative one. It's a time to restart, a time to reflect, a time to build and execute. This mind shift has started since I moved back to the DC area where season change is much more obvious than in Tallahassee, Fl (last home).
This particular fall, the dawn of the sky is so much more visible from my living room window, something I'd always wanted. I'll take a moment to sit and be still, watching the sky light up with colors of orange, pink, fiery yellow. It's a beautiful way to start my day, watching nature be itself, do its thing, and being in an attitude of gratitude for many things but mainly for being able to witness this every morning if I choose. It gets me going and reminds me to be natural, be myself, and to be consistent in growth and service. It's my Organic wake up call.
What's yours? What gets you going in a positive way?
