How you start your day; guides your day. My besties and I have an ongoing group chat where I (Jas) send daily aspirations and affirmations. One morning I simple sent "I love you...that's all I got." Genuinely I was feeling terrible. I was exhausted and just not sure what to say. I knew I didn't want to speak out negatively, so instead I choose love. To my surprise Cory responded with; "We have been gifted with the power to choice. We choose how we feel as soon as we wake up in the morning. If we wake up in a bad mood, it's likely we'll be in a bad mood, the entire day or we'll be easily irritated by others. Choose to always wake up positive, happy, motivated and don't give anyone else the power to alter your energy." I needed that.
You see, we don't realize that the moment the alarm goes off we instantly start our day, grabbing our phones or connecting back to everything. It is so important to sit in stillness by yourself. This "hour of power" is about awaking your consciousness, finding gratitude in the current moment before anything or anyone can alter or help determine your mood. So as you awake remember to invest in your food for the soul.
