Change your story


water sunriseWhat is something you tell yourself that you would really like to change?  I know for me, it is that I am “not a morning person”.  I have always thought you were either a morning person or a night owl, and myself and my entire family all easily fit into the latter category.


When I hear the story of the person who has put a load of washing on, cooked their breakfast, exercised, meditated whatever it is before I have even woken up for the day I am impressed.  I wish that could be me.  Then that little voice pipes in and says “but you are not a morning person”.  Ok I think that will never be me.


My days seem so full lately that I cannot possibly fit everything in and these days in particular always see me wishing I had achieved more while the house was quiet.  Imagining if I only had an extra 20 minutes to squeeze out of my day.


And you know what – I do.


It’s in the morning.  When I would rather be in bed. 


I do always try to set my intention for the day as I first wake and spend a few moments planning out my day but this is always such a quick practice when what I would really like is a good solid 20 minutes of peacefully and calmly beginning my day.


So today I set the alarm 20 minutes earlier (it’s a start) and headed straight over to meditate and journal.  If in my day I get a chance to do it again for even longer that will be a bonus to my day.  But knowing I have taken that time to complete something so precious to me has really helped my morning and day to flow. I feel so much more centrered, so much calmer and ready to take on the day.


Oh and I stopped telling myself that I am not a morning person and just focused on what I wanted to achieve – time to myself before everyone else in the house is awake for the day. So I am trying my best to replace “I am not a morning person” with “I wake up in time to achieve what I need” and that makes me feel so much more in control.


I can’t promise every day this is going to work for me, but I am going to make it my intention every night that I wake a little earlier and start my day in the way that really feels right to me.


Do you tell yourself things that don’t serve you?  Maybe today you can take a few moments to think about those things and rephrase your story.  Or make up a whole different one that serves you better, inspires you to make changes for your greater good and helps to stop those self-defeating beliefs.


Tell me a bit about how you can change your story and have an amazing day today!
