I am not a fan of November weekday mornings. I am not a fan of waking up in darkness. The time recently changed, giving me an extra hour of sleep - and yet, I'm still not a fan.
Someone mentioned recently that each day, they make three lists of five things.
I loved the idea, so I'm sharing it here.
They start with five things they are grateful for. (btw -my kids and my health are two things right up at the top of the list, every day.) I am also grateful for my job.
I don't have to say what I'm grateful to - as far as I'm concerned, it can be the universe. It's just the process of recognizing I have quite a bit to be thankful for.
Then, they list five things they are proud of themselves for. Basically giving yourself props for something difficult. Again, getting up and getting to work - something I am proud of myself for doing.
Finally, a list of five things to work on or process.
Strangely enough, getting up on time for work is not on this list for me. :) Things like being open about my feelings and setting boundaries (and not feeling guilty for setting boundaries) are on there.
