And I encourage people to end their day with an attitude of gratitude. Exhale, and let your mind fill with all the positives that have visited your life. By choosing to put these thoughts in your receptive, quieting mind, you close out your day’s experience with a sense of peace.
I’ve heard celebrated author Dr. Wayne Dyer refer to this as “… quiet time with God. In the morning before you’re fully awake, and again as you’re going to sleep, be in a state of appreciation,” he suggests, “and say aloud, I want to feel good!”
I encourage you to ponder how you’d like to “book-end” your day. (Perhaps book-ending can be an intention in itself.) And see how it makes a difference in who you become this year.
Until next time:
“Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart.”
