A Good Morning
Mantra To Have
If you were a girl scout and went to girl scout camp you know this morning mantra! I still use it today to get my slow butt in gear to get myself going in the mornings. I enjoyed going to camp growing up. I especially liked the scheduled events before bedtime and the way the camp came alive in the mornings! The girl talk, ghost stories and scaring each other late at night was pretty great too.
Nothing better than joining the polar bear swimming club! What a way to wake myself up by jumping into the ice cold lake before heading to breakfast. Brrr!
“I’m alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic . . .
I’m alive, awake alert, enthusiastic . . .
I’m alive, awake, alert . . .
I’m alert, awake, alive . . .
I’m alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic!”
(Insert dance moves through the entire song)
My sense of adventure was unleashed and untamed as a child and still is today as an adult! I enjoyed learning how to make fire and s’mores. I love being curious and inquisitive to search and seek out new things to learn, explore and experience! I can communicate, interact and connect to myself and the world I live in.
When I am unsure about something I reflect on being that kid who was up for just about anything and willing to give it a try at least once! It is about being willing and open to learning, growing and experiencing. It is about that inspiration and motivation that gives me drive. It is about that sense of connection to life and being and feeling alive!
Coming from a place of love and loving my whole being helps me believe and trust in myself! Believing in myself makes me alert and awake. Trusting in myself makes me aware and mindful. Loving myself makes me excited, enthusiastic, happy, and alive!
My whole being lets me know if I am using my energies effectively and efficiently! I need to listen to my inner voice, follow my heart and trust my gut because it does guide me in the direction I need to be going in. Otherwise I am off track, distracted and all over the place in living my life. I communicate, interact and connect with my whole being now and that feels pretty great in living the life I want and doing what I love!
I need to cultivate the relationship I have with myself! This is where I learn, grow and experience to develop, change, transition, and transform as a person. I need to grow and expand myself within the life I am living each and every day! Life is constant and ever changing, however; how I respond, journey and take action is how I live my life in letting it unfold around me.
