Good morning…or is it? Last night my sleep was interrupted by a very needy pitbull, my fur baby named Violet. I don’t know what set her off but it took hours to settle her down. As I arose this morning with very heavy eyes, I realized my original plan for my morning was about to change. How do you handle those unexpected changes? I chose to take a breath, do what was needed to wake up, and stretch my body in those places that a muscular pitbull felt the need to lay on. Only then was I ready to pour myself that very needed cup of coffee. Then, I was ready to look at my list of morning priorities and re-evaluate.
We can’t let our circumstances dictate how we feel. Circumstances happen. And when we can’t fix it or change it, the response we choose can make the difference between a day filled with frustration or one of joy. No matter what the circumstances are, let’s make it a good day!
Thanks for joining me for another virtual coffee date!
