Jump Into the Day with Commitment!

As I reflect on the time my friend and I spend together in devotionals, I consider the thoughtfulness in our exchange with one another and the space she and I have provided each other with to work through issues that arise. I also consider the almost immediate sense of peace that I have come to find in our exchange, mostly because I know we are ultimately sharing ourselves with God and through our exchanges He is working.


Today, I proposed a question to her: What is one small change that you are willing to commit to your daily routine to get your day off to a positive start even if your body/mind wants to head in the complete opposite direction?


As you jump into your day today, if you are struggling mentally, physically, spiritually or emotionally, I want to encourage you to consider making a commitment to change or add to an early morning daily routine one behavior that will bring positive results into your life.


Some examples of this might include:


  1. Determine the night before you go to bed, when you truly need to wake up and set your alarm for that time. Be excited if you wake up earlier and without the alarm. Be thankful if your body sleeps until its needs are met, uninterrupted without hitting the snooze button and you wake up to the alarm.

  2. Before you get out of bed- Smile and think “Today is going to be a good day.” Or “Good morning God. Thank you for the work you are doing in my life and the lives of those around me. Have a beautiful day God! I love you!”

  3. Commit to waking up 30 minutes before you need to sit with God, read an article, listen to a podcast or a few of your favorite tunes, Pray the rosary, or participate in some other soulful activity. Consider sitting outside if you can.

  4. Commit to an early morning daily walk. Preferably outside. It doesn’t have to be far, just enough that you can step away from the chatter and clutter that our lives can sometimes bring and just be.

  5. Develop a sacred space in your home where you can go everyday as often as you need to recenter yourself. Developing this space in your home will help you to better develop it in your mind, so that when your fear kicks in outside of your home, you have a safe place to go in your mind.


Y’all have a beautiful day!


All My Love,


Jen
