I don't know about you all, but Monday's to me have always been a very optimistic day. It's the first day of a brand new week, with all the possibilites of good ahead. What may happen? Don't know, but it's a clean slate. All the mistakes from last week are solidly in the past. This week leans forward with happiness.
Woke up this morning and weighed a bit heavier than this time last week. Up a pound. :( Yes, that is a bit annoying but on the plus side, my daughter is home from college, I had a great time with friends yesterday, and all my major joints feel pretty good. Weigh the good with the bad, look at the scale of life, and decide which side deserves the focus. Yeah....choose joy - again and again.
Only love, only joy, only kindness - say it over and over again - until you believe every syllable, and remember, those are emotions you deserve to feel towards yourself. We are all lovely.
So, smile at a friend and see your beauty reflected back to you in their eyes. It's there, just look. And let that emotion fill your heart.
Thoughts to take with me today: There is nothing wrong with right now. Right now is only gorgeous. Namaste.
