We all have experienced those moments when we feel like we are just going through the motions. While it is true that we are getting the job done, we might add ‘barely’ to the mix. The projects seem to take longer and it seems as if we accomplish less. And yet we don’t know what we can do to change it.
Let’s face it, we’re stuck. We feel boxed in and it seems as if there isn’t a way out. We don’t realize that we do have a choice and that we can do things differently.
But the change is within us and and it begins with changing our attitude. Each day presents us with a new opportunity to sculpt our day, the way we want it to be. It’s an opportunity for us to be creative and innovative.
Even though we continue to do some of the same things, we can learn how to change our attitude. Like many things, it’s learning a new habit which takes time. But it’s not as difficult as it seems. You have to begin somewhere. So first things first.
As you start your day be curious as to what the day might bring. Ask yourself, what the highlight of your day might be.
Think about what you have scheduled and wonder what might be the highlight. Allow for the possibility that it might be something unexpected. As your day progresses you are wondering about what the highlight might be.
Do you think that your day might have a new vitality, a new aliveness? Try it and see what happens.
And what you’ll find out is that some new and exciting possibilities will open up.
Be curious and open yourself up to these possibilities.
