Awaken Your Day - Feb 16, 2017 - Coming Soon...

"Amazing Work - Coming Soon"
- Posted on an elementry school wall

Inspiration will find you anywhere.
And, when it finds us, we need to remember that location ... because that may be a memory go to when we find ourselves struggling.

I picked our son up at school this week. And I found myself looking at the walls of all the projects the children are doing. The pictures, the colored displays, the pride they take in putting their work up for all to see and share. I missed school right then and there, for all the reasons we miss so much of as we get older...and busier. My mind looked for memories, while my heart remembered the feelings that made school something to miss. Take a moment, I think you will remember too.

And then I focussed on the wall where you can clearly see it is used for multiple displays of the work that class does through the year. 6 squares wide, 3 high. Different colors. All the boxes said, "Amazing Work - Coming Soon" . And I was excited.. I wanted to see the work they do. I wanted to be inspired and to smile for the joy of seeing it, and the joy of knowing the work they put in to make it their own. I wanted to see creativity. Like I enjoy any day it finds me.

And then the magic that is AYD came to me again. I parallelled that feeling to my day ... to my projects ... to my goals and dreams and efforts. Amazing Work - coming soon. Inspiration found me. At a magical place that our son spends so much time in. And not only do i need those words for me, but I get to take that thought, and bring it home for him as well. Magical thoughts to share ... exciting things to anticipate and work toward. Excited for what comes next.

A cool outlook on the day.
Good morning - Greater Day. Greater You - in the designing moments and coming soon.

Awaken Your Day - Feb 13, 2017 - Right there in front of us.

I was looking through quotes this morning. Looking for a spark to share. Something that would "Ah Ha" my vocals and rush my fingers to typing. Nothing was jumping out.

I read some sappy feel good stuff.. nah, I don't want that today....
I read some "get rid of the weights before you can fly" stuff... nope, not what I want today.
I read some jolly "perfect world" stuff ... but I didn't want that as I just didn't have the substance to make a picture out of it.
And I chose to avoid the news because, let's be honest ... all those people just make me a walking contradiction to what I want to share here.

Some mornings are like this. I cannot find what I want in that moment to share, to inspire ... what I want to share is not clear. I know what I am not feeling...and what I don't want but ....

And maybe that is what I am looking for. Sometimes it is just as good to walk out the door knowing what we do not want in our day as much as it is to find some triggering words of encouraging action.

I know what I do not want my Monday to turn into. I know that I do not want Monday to be the seed of a negative tree that will grow all week. So ... what is my focus going to be to totally bypass watering that tree? What would my plan look like if I wanted to NOT feel anxious, stressed, pressure, incomplete, cluttered? Have I considered that point of view ?

And there you have it... I can see how I do not want to feel... what do I need to plan for to avoid THAT. And quite often, the thoughts that run through your mind now start to align like a solid agenda and you find you have ... a positive plan - without the effort.

Try it. You may be pleasantly on your way.
Good Morning, Greater Day. Greater You - focussed right there in front of you.
