I value my quiet time in the mornings. Six days a week, I wake up at 5:15, get in a workout, say my gratitudes, recite my affirmations, take my shower, do my hair/makeup, and then do a quick meditation and visualization before the kids get up.
Today started out as usual. I woke up, put on my workout clothes, and slid into my shoes. Just as I was heading downstairs, my daughter woke up. I tried to stay positive and get her back to sleep, but she was just not having it.
Needless to say, I missed all of my routine that morning. It threw my day off big time and I found myself in a rather unpleasant mood. I snapped at my kids like they were the reason I was feeling like this. Like a toddler, I moped around that morning in a slump about not having my way. It wasn’t long before I realized that what I was feeling was a CHOICE and not an EFFECT. That’s when I decided to DO something about it and reset my mood.
Not knowing where to start, I just reached for the first thing that popped into my head. I grabbed a bottle of doTERRA’s Cheer blend and put a few drops in my diffuser. As I inhaled the vapors, I set the intention that I was going to CHEER myself up. I thought about what I was grateful for and allowed myself to feel that for a bit. It wasn’t long before I was feeling better and back to my happy, motivated self.
There are days when I just get thrown off course and wish I had a magic reset button. Unfortunately, there is no reset button in life but there IS a guaranteed way to fix whatever negative mood you are in. That is to:
Set your intention and take action!
I invite you to take action with me today. To set the INTENTION to be positive, cheerful, and enjoy your day, no matter what happens!
If you need a good starting point, you can always snag a bottle of Cheer and use that as your first step. I know I’m glad I have it on hand for days like this… Whatever you do, don’t play helpless. Set your intention and get moving. ;D
