Morning is the best time of the day. It is the time when anything is possible. The day hasn’t had a chance to be filled with stress, or perceived failures, or awkward interactions, or procrastination (unless you are one of those that sleeps until noon). It is a built in restart button. Everyday starts with the possibility for anything and I believe that truly seeing and understanding that is a choice.
This is something I am making a huge conscious effort to consider everyday. To ask myself, “What can I accomplish today? What opportunity do I want to take advantage of today?” But I am also working on accepting what I accomplished the day before. Saying to myself, “You did enough. You are enough.” That is always so difficult. To not be too hard on yourself. To accept yourself and what you were able to accomplish. But what is the mantra? Say it with me! “You did enough. You are enough.”
One of the opportunities I have been taking advantage of lately is to treat myself to a healthy and hearty breakfast. I have been keeping lots of fresh produce around which makes it easy to throw together a breakfast skillet in no time. All you have to do is throw some mixed veggies and spices in an oven proof skillet or dish, let them char under the broiler for a few minutes, then crack some eggs on top and let them set under the broiler. It all happens in under 15 minutes and you have a real hearty breakfast that feels like something special. The perfect way to start the day of endless possibilities!
