Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
My Monday through Friday morning routine is now going through some “winter refinements” because unfortunately it’s dark at 6:30am. Now that the cold weather is seriously a reality, watching the sunrise during my morning run is temporarily a thing of the past. I’ve moved my running time back a bit to around 6:50. For safety, instead of riding my bike, I drive to the high school track. Yes, it’s still dark, but at least I can see those white lines and numbers and I’m not running in a desolate area.
Everything is figureoutable
Not exactly correct grammar, but Marie’s a jersey girl like me, so…it works. If you’re willing to be flexible in changing up your morning routine, then you will find it easy to keep getting out there all year long. We can do this!
The Only Power We Have is In the Present
Do you ever think so far ahead into your day about what might happen? We have no power to make any change in that future or past “thing” because it’s not happening right now. Sure, planning ahead is good, but allowing in emotions and assumptions about the things on the To Do List…not so good. Forming assumptions about the “stuff” is unnecessarily creating thoughts and feelings that are not reality. We can only create change in this very moment. We have the ability to change our mind right now, so why are we living somewhere else?
It’s true. We hear it constantly– look within, not outside. Happiness is not something to find. It’s already here. We just need to change our perspective. But how?
