My phone woke me up this morning. Not really, I woke up, went to my computer and did some online research and pre-connecting to people who I found and thought are doing awesome stuff in the eating disorder recovery realm. Then I went back to sleep. Then a phone call woke me up.
A missed call. I didn’t pick it up in time. My mom called. I called her back 3 times until she picked up. Then I realized she called on accident and I took that as a sign that I should get out of bed, leave my room and start enjoying the day.
What’s the first thing I do? I walk to the bathroom. Why? I have to pee. What do I do before I pee? I look into the mirror, and I looked into my eyes.
And what did I see?
I am beautiful. My first-top-of-the-head-morning thought, “I am Beautiful!” “Hey sexy, hey. Hey sexy eyes.” <- Okay, I didn’t say the second part with “sexy eyes”, but why not? I’m saying it now.
The first thoughts we have in the morning can be a powerful driving force of how our day will play out. After looking into my eyes and calling myself beautiful, I have had loads of awesome, positive energy. And I love it!
Energy is my best friend, because I am energy, I cultivate it, I nurture it, energy is representative of my relationship with myself.
