Everyone is still asleep as I write this. As I gaze outside waiting for the morning sun to come out, I found myself falling into deep thoughts. At first, I don’t want to give in because of all the things I need to do. But I guess a few minutes of reflection won’t hurt. Might as well welcome and embrace a little inspiration on a Monday.
Before doing any thinking, I’m just going to grab something to drink. I’m craving for chocolate drink right now…. And I just have to give in. I couldn’t resist the aroma and bitter-sweet taste of chocolates!
Now I am ready.
Here I am in front of my computer looking at my “Better Me” list. It’s a list I make every year which contains my heart’s desires – what I like to conquer, improve and contribute. Somehow, it guides me every time I do a little bit of musing.
This year, I’ve been working on how to move away from comfort zone. I don’t know why I find it so difficult to do. Does it come with age? Or my being less adventurous ever since I became a mom? Saying “yes” more often, trying to do things differently & jumping into the unknown seem so daunting. but I think it’s time to overcome fear, go out & explore more. I wouldn’t know what’s out there if I don’t get into my courage zone.
Since I’m a visual person, I thought a reminder of this goal will help me make those small changes in my life. So instead of writing my reminder on a post-it, I’m making something more colorful, more inspiring.
So with my favorite tools…
I’m turning my favorite colors into a portrait of sunshine and inspiration.
Allowing my heart’s desires and feelings to guide my every stroke, mix and pattern…
And finally write my focus .
It’s not perfect, but it looks encouraging enough to start my day right.
Then I took a photo of my creation and made it as my wallpaper. Good idea right? I’ll definitely be reminded to move away from my comfort zone everyday!
I need to get ready now. I already hear my boys laughing in the bedroom. In a few, the morning chaos will begin.
So what will you do differently today to improve your life? 🙂
