Monday Motivational…




What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?

 

On our morning walk a friend said that she’d heard the reason birds just a thoughtsing first thing in the morning before they even begin to look for breakfast is to praise and give thanks for the coming day. 

 

I did Google this and while it may be more mystical and myth, the idea of it made a lot of sense to me. 

 

Instead of beginning your day with thoughts of the many tasks facing you, or the client who drives you crazy, try thinking of how grateful you are to wake up...how grateful you are for another morning to enjoy all that has been given to you. 

 

And for you this morning...click on the photo for your morning bird songs.

Waking up to singing birds is a wonderful way to start the day. Coffee helps too! Thanks for sharing the bird song video. 

Happy Monday, Kathy!

Kathy,

I do hear the birds singing, and the crows crowing every morning...except those 4AM morning when we drive to Beverly Hills.  I hear the absolute stillness of the night with the stars shining...A

Waking up to the sound of birds in the morning is the first treat of the day and I always enjoy that quiet time being alone in nature. I think if more people listened to the birds every early morning when the weather is right, there would be happier people here on earth.

Hi Kathy Streib - One of my favorite things to do is watch the sunrise and listen to the birds and during this perfect weather early morning, I work out in the garden. This is the best way I have found to start the day!

Doug Dawes Glad you like the video. I love listening to the sound of birds singing. 

Sharon Lee I wish you could see the bluebird babies. We do see one or two of them when they return to the feeder.

George Souto I am so thankful for that.  And realize that there are some who don't get the many mornings to wake up and greet the day as you and I and others here have. 

Carol Williams coffee goes without saying!!! A must have!

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® it starts your day off with a smile and it carries with you for the day. 

Kat Palmiotti I'll bet those out on the hiking trail feel the same way. 

I agree Sheila Anderson how we wake up in the morning can color our whole day.

Hi Kathy:

That's certainly a much nicer way to greet the day, and I enjoy hearing the birds in the morning, although sometimes it's a bit early. 

My day usually starts with the cats nagging for their breakfast!

Morning Kathy.

Just waking up makes me thankful for the day.  Not much of anything, will deter me from having a, wonderful day.
