I am so glad it is Tuesday.
If I am being honest though, my first thought this morning was “I can’t wait until Friday”. I’m going to really out myself now and tell you that I have actually felt that way since Sunday Night.
Have you ever wished it were Friday/the Weekend/a different day, hour or minute?
My sense is that many of us feel this way on a regular basis. It occurred to me this morning that in having this thought I was kind of just wishing my life away. In a perpetual state of wanting it to be Friday, I was wishing 5 other days of my life didn’t exist, every. single. week.
I’m pretty sure that is the opposite of presence, which is what I believe to be the key to a magnificent life. The kind of life that I am committed to living.
Awareness is the first step in changing anything. In this particular case for me, the second step is simply to change the thought. My new thought is, “I am so glad that it is_____ (insert day of the week).
Just like building muscles at the gym, this new thought pattern is a muscle I must work to build. I don’t actually wish my days didn’t exist, but the old thought pattern of “I wish it were Friday” is an unconscious one that my mind is programmed to think, and it WILL think thoughts like this if left to it’s own devices. So instead I choose to be conscious and aware of what I am focusing on.
The next steps remain unclear, but like anything in life, you have to start somewhere.
Wishing you a beautiful Tuesday (and 6 other days of the week )
