Is This My Best?
Today, I’d like you to do a little self-assessment. It’s rather simple but the results should be eye opening.
Throughout the day, I’d like you to ask yourself if you are doing, giving and expecting the best.
When you exercise, are you just going through the motions in order to say that you have done it? Do you go through your morning simply checking things off a list? “Brushed my teeth; check. Exercised; check. Meditated; check, well, okay; half a check.”
Today, be mindful of giving your all. As you drive to and from work; rather than waking up after you arrive, actually think about what you are doing.
When you say “Good Morning,” recognize that you have the power to speak good cheer on someone else.
When you go about your daily tasks, think about what you bring to them. See yourself giving your all without the need to be recognized or compensated for going the extra distance.
We often get into a rut in our work, our relationships and with our own self simply because we don’t see each day as a new gift; another opportunity to live fully.
Speak to your children and the ones you know as if you may have lost them the day before, but today you discovered that they are still here.
Look at your loving relationships as brand new and still in that first three month phase when even the mistakes and bad habits were so cute.
See your co-workers as brilliant and yourself as lucky to be on such an incredible team. Even if you don’t think it to be true, act as if you do.Allow every mundane task to be a marvel and think about things like the processing and delivery of mail.
Marvel at who you are and what you bring, because today you bring your best.
You are a wonderful gift to the Universe. BE THAT.
Be you, be well, be your best.
