Be a Morning person

I had a client come to see me the other day and when she walked in … late, she said in a flustered, grumpy voice “I am not a morning person!”

How many times have you heard someone or even yourself say, oh I am not a morning person. It takes me a good couple of hours or sometimes until lunchtime before I come right.

What a powerful affirmation this is … just stop and think about this for a minute. Your word is your wand. What you say goes … you create your own reality by what you say, and how you think, feel and act. Also when you break your word you break your wand and lose your magic.

There was a time in my life when I thought I wasn’t a morning person too. I would get up as late as I possibly could … usually reluctantly, with no energy … rubbing my eyes and my head, complaining about the noise and how hard it is to get motivated.

I affected everyone around me by my negative energy and usually foul mood (They knew not to come too close until I had ‘warmed up’) and this set the mood for the rest of my day and sadly theirs.

I had no idea what I was missing out on … how stuck this affirmation kept me.

I was oblivious to the fact that I could actually change this … that I was in control of how I felt in the mornings or any other time for that matter and it was as simple as changing what I tell myself.

Now, I am absolutely a morning person. I love to get up in the morning and why wouldn’t I? Some people no longer have that option. I wake up in a jovial excited mood (Much to the dismay of other not so morning people) every day is a new beginning.

I love to hear the birds singing to each other (and possibly to us) I love to get up and meditate or just spend some time alone, being quiet. I love doing my exercise and going for my morning runs… feel the sun wrapped around me like God’s blanket or the rain cleansing layers of negativity off me … I feel so alive. Then I come home and make myself a freshly squeezed juice, which tantalizes my taste buds and absolutely nourishes my body.

How do you think the rest of my day goes? Even when life throws me its usual challenges I am in a much better frame of mind to deal with them just from being a morning person.

The truth is I have used this in other areas of my life already, I just forgot to apply it everywhere. I do not allow myself to get sick and I don’t. I do not have time for it. Yet I meet people who say “I always get the flu twice a year and they always do!

I love my work. Exercise and a great diet is a treat not a chore … in fact my life is a treat.

So what are you deciding about your life?
