How Changing One Thing In Our Routine, Can Lighten Us Up.

Yesterday I posted on my instagram asking people what they do first thing in the morning.

The answers I got were mostly the usual things of opening our eyes, looking at our phones, heading for a shower. One different answer was, doing 3 yoga poses in bed which I thought must be a really good thing to try and do (if you are interested in yoga).

I sometimes feel it is always good to give our routine a change, an upbeat, something a little more ordinary to add on something new to our day, to our minds, and our attitude to life.

Some ideas I can throw in here are; watering your plants, doing a little prayer, kissing your loved awake or still asleep, meditating, or writing your morning pages.

Writing Morning Pages was my answer on my instagram in response to my question. It has been introduced to me a few years ago first, through a leadership camping training in Switzerland and second, in my writing group club in Amman. The former was used as a method to reflect and write at any time of the day on an empty page without thinking, just writing, letting all our feelings go into writing. And the later was taken from the book ‘The Artist Way’ and is done first thing in the morning, every day, religiously. It is a method to clear our minds and set our attitude positively to our day by using positive affirmations, positive thoughts, and goals.

Nothing is necessary for writing our Morning Pages, nothing is right or wrong, and no one needs to read them. They can be private or can be torn apart if it makes you feel more comfortable, but the idea is to write everything down every morning, first thing in the morning. Let it all out on empty pages. It is a great new start of the day.

They helped me make new self-realization, reflection, understand feelings, hidden thoughts, aspirations, dreams, neglect, it is just a very great way to understand oneself better, put what is unimportant aside on the pages, and put what we wish to attain from self-motivation on paper to remind us of our basic goals and dreams. Be gentle to my self, today, be gentle to everyone I encounter, smile, be graceful, walk with grace, speak with grace, listen with grace, give, with no expectations, no judgments, live, freely, loudly, happily, share, your dreams, and your love, be generous to yourself and to others… and this is how it goes.

I hope this blog post helps us live more positive. If you do have your own tip to share for a morning ritual, please comment and share.

A piece of advice for a happier Sunday

Positive Living Venice

How to listen to your heart

There is no one better than your own judgement upon yourself. The people surrounding you are your distraction to your self listening. Don’t let that possess you. How you feel is the answer to everything you encounter at anytime. Learn to listen to your feelings, learn the difference between your emotions, and learn to act upon them in the very right way. Some will make your hearts feel warmer, some will make your hearts feel colder, listen carefully and listen well, your hearts will lead you to where you belong. Once you understand your own callings, you will understand how to trust your intuition to follow your heart. Be familiar with your inner self, let your faith lead you to what makes you feel happier within. Have a very happy Wednesday.

Patience is a way of happiness

We live in a world of today to learn about living the moment. Without patience, living any moment will be very difficult. Our heart & mind are both always yearning for what is there yet to come that we miss all the golden moments of the present. This yearning disables our patience & creates a deformation to live with enjoyment. For we can not control the future, we can not predict or create what is there yet to come, we for sure can lead, inspire, attract or drive to a certain future place but we can not guarantee the outcome, therefore our enjoyment is only based on what we imagine can be happiness, but we are never certain of it. As for patience; it is an act of learning to live the now, this very moment of the now, the process of our formation, the drive through the destination, the causes of the outcome, patience teaches us to enjoy the very present moment before enjoying the future that will sooner or latter be also a present moment. Patience is happiness if we only practice it the right way, if we understand that the feeling of being patient is not about having to sit and wait in despair but instead it is to sit in the moment and enjoy the very present process of our life. Be patient, learn to enjoy patience, it is a way to enjoy life. Have a blessed and wonderful Monday.

Enjoy Today

Today enjoy. Enjoy your moments, your time. Make your decisions based on your understanding, speak when your sure it is the good to be spoken, listen carefully to those who wish to speak to you.

Today is your day, it is a day you deserve to recognize yourself, the day you give to yourself, and appreciate yourself. Be kind to you, to the ones near you, and the ones crossing you. Be loving, explore love, give love, and be tranquil. Have a wonderful Saturday filled with your positive fillings.

Follow your heart, but take your brain.

Follow your heart but take your brain #Quote one of those that make you stop read & think. Learning to listen to your heart is the very first step, understating the nature of your hearts call out is the second step, following your heart with your brain is the third. It is being conscious about your heart callings, knowing the essence behind what your heart is yearning for before following, and letting go completely as you follow because you deeply consciously & subconsciously connect & trust your heart. A beautiful feeling it is when you are conscious about your feelings & decisions & when your conscious about the amount of positive energy that floats within. #PositiveLiving
