This week the Monday Monster could have taken over, it would have been easy to let it. I was away from my sunny happy California 🌞🌊 life (back there in Feb!), did a whole lot of nothing on Saturday (which was actually kind of nice, so working on the balance of guilt and enjoyment for doing that🤔), have literally over 1,000 unread emails to either delete or attempt to read or save for later-whenever that is 🤷-and in reality I could keep listing the things that could have 'won'. But I won't, because there is so much more to be positive about! I like to list those out too! I have some delicious hot slique tea next to me (since for me it's quite cold already here in Chicago❄️), I have a beautiful home office to work out of, clean sheets on my bed (I definitely count this as a positive because I have laundry where we are living and don't have to take it out of the house to do!), my family who supports me through thick and thin (sometimes I cry with gratitude over how blessed I am with this one!👨👩👧👧) and oh so many more things!
I like when I'm able to let the positive win, to look around and see all the good and not all the things that could stress me out. It doesn't always happen and sometimes it's a battle or really it feels like I'm trying to pull myself out of a deep dark cave and my hands keep slipping on falling rocks, the beads of sweat on my forehead keep getting in my eyes, but I keep trying not to look down at the dark abyss and focus more on the light above. So I decided the light will win today, and I will stay out of that cave and in the sunshine 🌞.
Top three things that brought me happiness on this Monday
- Oiling up! This morning I put in my diffuser my favorite combination as of late; Joy and Abundance. Joy has Ylang Ylang, Geranium, Jasmine, Palmarosa, Rose, Bergamot, Lemon, and Tangerine which seriously bring me Joy! And Abundance has Orange, Frankincense oil, Patchouli, Clove, Ginger, Myrrh, Cinnamon, and Black spruce. So much yumminess!
- Starting my day off working on my business; the business of helping people live a healthier, happier life!
- Keeping any small negative or stressful thoughts out of my brain!👑💃
