Today, I woke up feeling crappy. What’s wrong with me?!
Answering that question while still in bed made me felt worse.
I needed answers that will get me a good start to a great day.
So I did 3 things:
- Stop Wallowing, Start Moving: Got out of bed. Took a shower. The wallowing stopped. Moving out of a bad place physically forced my brain to reset in a new environment. I can feel my brain clearing the bad memories and getting set up for the day.
- Get Clear, Get Free: Needed to get clear, get free and stop the spiraling into crappy places. So I changed my routine. Instead of driving, I walked to catch a cab. The walk and ride gave me time to think my confusion out loud. Slowly, i found myself engaging the things that matter.
- Do Love, Do Best: I got coffee and encouraged someone at the coffee shop. I am a strengthsfinder guy. So naturally, I shared with her what I thought her strengths were. She came alive. Made her day. And I came alive.
And yes, it turned out to be a great day to be alive!
