Getting back to basics in Naperville...

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

Good morning!!

Today is Monday, June 1st. The start of a new week. The start of a new month…

The morning is cool but beautiful. I sit outside on my front patio, facing east, watching the sun peek through the trees…

Despite the serene setting, I am feeling anxious. My mood the last few days has not been one I am happy with…

My sleep last night was fitful. Waking often, I found myself with an overactive mind. The challenges that lay ahead seemed overwhelming, and the opportunities felt few and far between…

Sometimes the world can get me down. I worry. I fret. I make mountains out of molehills, and struggle with my feelings and emotions. The last few days have been this way…

My inner voice has been cruel. Focusing on the negatives, I have been unhappy with myself. My mind has raced from one issue to the next… 

Silly when I think about it. I have much going for me. A successful business that I love. A loving partner and family. I am healthy, and so are those around me…

Yet I have let my thoughts get the best of me. And this needs to stop…

So today I vow to go back to the basics. I will focus on my habits. Nothing drastic, for I know change comes from a series of small actions taken over time... 

I will put better things in my body, and better things in my mind…

I will listen to positive affirmations when I wake...

I will reach out to those that are important to me, and I will give more of myself…

I will write more, for I know that putting my thoughts down on paper has always been very therapeutic for me…

I will focus on solutions. And I will focus on gratitude...

Perhaps most importantly, I will smile more. For today is a new day, and I am feeling better already…

Have an awesome Monday!

Hello Ken - being/doing positive, good thoughts and kindness are also "basics" of life.

There are days when we really have to dig deep to find the focus and stay present.  Sounds as if you talked yourself right back into positivity. Good job.
