I sometimes wake up in a mindset of lacking or scarcity and I fixate on what’s not going well or what I don’t have. It could be from a dream or anxiety I took to bed with me from the night before.
When this happens, I wake up feeling lacking and I go through my morning ritual – rise, rinse face, drink water and coffee, meditate – hoping that it will shake the feeling of scarcity. The feeling that I am not doing enough, not creating enough, not putting enough out into the world, on my website, on social media, in a newsletter…
But then someone asked me a question this morning: What will be great about today?
And I was flooded with so many answers…
A new trail run with a good friend.
Valuing my time.
Morning meditation with my two cats curled in my lap.
Hot coffee and flax granola for breakfast.
Time to write. TIME TO WRITE!
Waking up later than 5AM.
Listening to music in my car.
This question made me notice all the abundance in my life, in my today.
It made the “not enough”-ness seem like more than enough.
Ask yourself the question: What will be great about today?
