I LOVE To Get Up In The Morning, Don’t You?

By Kim Thornton

Are you someone who complains about mornings. Do you especially complain about Monday morning? It’s a shame, but this is such a common habit that people have in our society.

But stop and think about the alternative.

Waking up in the morning is a good thing. If the choice is between waking up or not waking, what do you prefer?

MCs (morning complainers) seem to have pretty much decided what their day is going to be like even before they’ve gotten out of bed! It seems to me that they must be pretty unhappy with their lot in life.

I mean, to be alive and have another day ready for you to grab, another 24 hours available for you to do as you see fit, what a wonderful blessing!

I know that not every thing you do is going to be on your top 10 favorites list. You’re not likely to be oozing enthusiasm every minute of every day. Reality doesn’t work that way. There are things we must do that are just plain boring. There are mundane activities we must attend to. But hating to get up and letting that color your day and your life? That says to me you’ve make some poor choices along the way. That’s no way to live!

You see, I believe life is all about choices. We make hundreds, maybe thousands of them every day. Some are big and most are little. From what shirt or blouse to wear, what to have for breakfast, whether to have that extra cup of coffee, to more significant ones such as a decision to purchase a house or go back to school.

Some of our choices involve physical things as mentioned above. But many are strictly between the ears! And that’s what I want to focus on in the rest of this article. And it brings us back to the MCs.

That really is a choice you make: to wake up looking forward to the day’s challenges and opportunities or dreading the things you need to do.

These are our choices!

Let’s say you find yourself in a job you detest. Why are you there? What choices did you make to get there and what choices are you making that keep you there?

Is your choosing to be miserable making things worse. Could you improve your enjoyment of life if you simple made a choice to be happier, to greet people with a smile and to be more helpful?

Whether you like it and accept it or not, we all choose the outlook we have towards life. It really is sad that a lot of people choose to be victims. And yes, that is a choice people make. Maybe not consciously, but that’s the nature of being a victim. In reality most people who play the victim role won’t even recognize themselves as such.

If you’re reading this, though, you’re not likely a person who plays the victim. That’s just an example of a choice that gets made. But I challenge you to take a hard look at the way you view life.

If you fall short, in other words if you don’t view life as a great and wonderful adventure that you anticipate with enthusiasm every day, I challenge you to make some new choices. Do you need to find some new opportunities to go after or do you simply need to start seeing life in a new light?

Make a choice!

If you’re ready to make some new choices to change the direction of your life, check out the It might be the best choice you’ve made for a long time!
