Monday. yuk. We Should Consider The Opportunities

Monday, October 04, 2010

"If you've never failed, you've never lived."

I should watch this every Monday morning. Things pile up, things need doing, virtually scream at me to GET IT DONE!! And then the overwhelming begins ... and I seem to get so easily overwhelmed.

This helped. Just a quick stop, a quiet listening and pondering. Something to center my heart on instead of being overwhelmed.

My thoughts shift. The "Can't Do's" become the "Haven't Done Yets". It's all about perspective. And, as corny as it may seem, it's about having a positive attitude.

Take a minute. Breathe. Consider the Opportunities.

Awesomely inspiring!! Thank you! So needed that as, like you, Mondays can so easily become 'overwhelm' days. So reassuring to know that it is actually our imperfections, our 'apparant' failures and mistakes, the negative 'labels' that can be attached to us, that can actually be the means of making us strong, courageous and determined to achieve our ultimate destiny!

Karen, whats with the Utubes...I never watched one before I found your blog!!! Personally I always find Mondays to be the best day....a fresh start, about Thursday is usually when I begin to melt.

wha??? You don't like my YouTubes?

ah, I love them. We don't watch television in this house (NetFlix addicts here) ... and I find YouTube is like the very best of television without having to endure commercials or... you know ... television.
