Yesterday I was feeling a bit unsettled. It was a holiday here in the States. I had just returned from a working trip. Although I had the day off there were so many things on my to do list that my mind was buzzing with all of it and trying to just focus on what was important. I went to the gym then stopped by my office. I cleared out some emails so I’d know where I needed to begin when I returned to my business today. I find if I can’t stop my mind from racing I just spin in circles and don’t accomplish anything, so I went home, sat on my bed and meditated a wee bit. An idea came to me….write a thank you note. Gratitude always calms my mind. Reflecting on the month that had passed I was reminded of the wonderful moments I had shared with the people I love and the kindness that I had been shown by so many. I pulled out my Treasure Box where I had lovingly placed all of the cards I received on my birthday….and the world, my world was right again. I re-read my cards, wrote a list of people I wanted to thank and penned my gratitude to two from my list. I grabbed that To-Do list, highlighted what needed to be done that day and calmly left the rest. I actually got more done than I had planned. Then I called my mom and invited her to dinner!
I want to thank you for subscribing to InKelliesWorld and bringing me even more blessings! I hope your day is focused, filled with love and that you find something that brings you joy to put in your treasure box.
Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you should begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
