"We could hardly wait to get up in the morning!" Wilbur and Orville Wright

I actually love this quote - it's exactly how I've been feeling lately! Don't get me would be oh, so nice to sleep in but when I do get up and out of bed, I don't feel sluggish or bloated or heavy. Instead, I find I feel energetic and happy.

Seriously? It took me this long to figure out the secret to waking up happier not crankier. I've been missing out.

Do any of you have mental tips and tricks to help you through the day or week?

One of my favourites is thinking about the upcoming events I have in my life (both short-term and long-term). Short-term would be this week and long-term would be in a few months kinda thing.

For instance, this week my short-term goals are a board meeting, a sponsor meeting and a brunch. I have these 3 things posted in my agenda and on my computer screen. That way when I find myself craving peanut butter cups, I look at the list and see that I need to make a good impression at my meetings and wow my friends at brunch and I kick the craving. So far this has been working. Setting small goals. Again, who knew? Ha!



  1. love how positive and fired up you are!

  2. I used to always be thinking of what was coming up - until I read a book by Eckhart Tolle who explained that if all you ever think about or want then you miss the present moment...and he's right. Right now is ALL I have - I have no idea if any of that stuff will ever happen but if they're all I think about - I miss a lot of really awesome stuff that happens right now. That mindset has helped me live in the moment and even try to find the good in the middle of the day at work. Sounds crazy huh? Ugh - that didn't help you at all did it? Thanks for my blog comments...loved them.

  3. Thanks Tricia!

    Thanks D - I do live in the moment...well, try to live in the moment. The look to the future trick is when I'm looking to fit into a dress for a date night and nacho Doritos are tempting me at every turn! Ha!


Speaking without thinking is like shooting without taking aim...I'd love to hear from you - just be nice to each other - and me :)
