Weekly Routine or Daily Happiness?

Meaningful Monday


This is the start of another week, have you decided how it should be for you?

Many people wake up in the morning, go to the bathroom, get dressed for work, get in their office, have lunch, go home, eat dinner then go to bed. Repeat daily. What happens in between? What are you thinking off in between those actions?

Do you enjoy your weekends? Do you then look forward to the coming week? Do you jump out of bed full of excitement or do you sigh and think, ‘Ugh, another week of boring work’?

A client once asked me ‘How do you stay so excited? How are you always so positive?’

If there’s a secret to this is that I’m always feeling blessed. Yes, blessed! Or some people may say it’s feeling lucky.

I am ‘lucky’ that I’m alive, with all my faculties, I have food on the table and even the fact that I’m able to write this to people from all over the world, is amazing.

I open my eyes every morning and smile that I live to see another day of kissing my husband to work and cuddling my children. I look out the window and smile to see my cats chasing the birds. I beam when I see the chili peppers growing beautifully on the plants I’ve nurtured for months.

We all have days that we feel is ‘shitty’ (pardon my French) and it’s ok to have some of those days. I go through hours where I’m a bit down but I don’t let it get to me. Nor should it to you.

I am happy because I’m positive. I’m positive because I’m happy. See the ‘vicious’ circle?

We all share one thing as humans- the faculty of reasoning that comes with choice. Living in a free world, we all have choices. A choice to be happy today and always or to let someone else upset you for the rest of your life.

So what is your choice when it comes to being happy and positive? Will you wake up and make everyday a routine or will you wake up, look into the sky and let happy exciting things come your way?

If you have trouble deciding, maybe something is blocking your thoughts. Maybe you need someone like me to help unlock that kink in your water hose? If that kink is loosen, imagine the flow of water (positive thoughts) that can go your way. Don’t hesitate to ask for help.

    Hi Ar’nie. Are you the person who offered belly dancing classes in Surrey? If it is you can you tell me when and where you teach?

Got something to share? Write it down for me!
