The Morning After!

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Wright Realty

Ever have one of those mornings (especially after a party or extremely hectic week) where all you wanted to do was crawl back into bed and sleep some more? This morning I woke up to a grey, drizzly and cold day; my mood was identical!  Looking around, I saw more of the same...

On the tube, media mongrels were grousing about stuff that made my teeth grind---Illinois Governor trying to sell Obama's seat?  PLEEEEASE!  I don't get it...why do these young(er) good looking, politically correct men with golden lives (and wives) go on the deep end and do such stupid self-destructive things?

They must be thinking they're God and nothing will touch them---are they so vain to assume they are above the moral and right compass for the rest of us?  Like I said, I don't get it.

And then there's the headline "Joe the Plumber is Angry with McCain---I wanted to get off the bus, he says."  WHAT?  Don't we all have better things to do then listen to Joe the Plumber???

I apologize if I seem jaded, but for once, I would love to turn on TV, or the news blog and see a news-worthy article or story that will make my heart sing, and be glad to be alive!  Don't you agree?

So disgusted with this, I decided to start my day by affirmatively speaking a new reality:

TODAY, I will not be locked into a purposeless routine.  I will open up and branch out! I will begin to recognize and appreciate the function that I am and the purpose that I serve.  I will continue to identify myself with a greater purpose and leave behind being caught up in mindless (and meaningless) routines.  Life is infinitely more than it seems. This is my affirmation for today.

TODAY, see if walking around in a galaxy instead of walking around your office in the same wornout shoes is possible!  See what you've been missing.  See what you've been over-looking.  See that a purposeless routine is a small concern for a vast creature like yourself who can dream up anything in any moment! Let the sense of being part of a galaxy come into being with you today!

That is exactly what I needed today.  It is also cold, gloomy and rainy here in Northeast Tennessee.  I spent the morning running around the house getting my teenagers butt moving, hectic, crazy...oh, whoops, it's garbage day-run out to the street in my robe in the pouring rain......go go go......

Thanks for slowing me down!

Rose, Yes makes you wonder why anyone ever turns on the news. I would have to say with shock, what??? was the Illinois Governor thinking and just who voted for him??? BTW He also has a lot of hair to go along with his gall. LOL

Great post to read to remind us all that we can be positive, regardless of what we read or hear about in the news. No matter how bad we see our own situations, there is always someone out there worse off than we are.

I'm with you about the ones who seem to "have it all."  I just heard about a city councilman using his clout to get a friend's electricity turned back on without the friend paying the bill. I just have to wonder sometimes if these people have just lost their minds.  Did all that power and prestige go to their heads and make them believe they are now invincible, that nothing can come back to them? It really is ridiculous.
