An older picture and I’m dreaming of days like these spent in nature once again. But in the meantime I thought I share a little mantra with you, courtesy of Linda Ellis, to start the week in the right mind-frame. So here it goes and I hope you try it and read it each morning as you start your day.
I will (mantra)
I will choose how this day goes no matter what may come my way. I can only live this time one time; the minutes, the hours, the day.
I will smile through adversity, let malice be ignored, and release the spite and pettiness that today, won’t be restored.
I will heed constructive views, though they may appear as flak and force unkind deeds and insults to roll right off my back.
I will complete acts of kindness in my own special style not just for the benefit of others, but because they make me smile.
My heart and soul are now content; life’s blessings overflow and I will be the one to blame if I let these feelings go.
