Yesterday I did not want to get up. My bed was warm, my house was cold, my dog was snuggly, and it was raining and gross outside. I actually thought to myself, “Why can’t we just take a pass on a whole day?” Not just stay in and do nothing, but actually fast forward and skip the damn thing.
Since I knew I’d have to get up at some point I started writing my morning pages. Usually it’s a scribbly, rambling brain dump, but yesterday it turned into something different. Something awesome.
By the time I had gotten to the end of my three pages I had unintentionally penned a cheerleader-y love letter to myself. I wrote about all my good qualities and how I’m going to kick ass at everything I’m working on and surprise, surprise, as I made my way downstairs for breakfast I started my day in a damn good mood. I was not just ready to conquer my to-do list, I was excited.
Have you ever written to yourself? If you haven’t I challenge you to do so tomorrow morning and start your day off on a positive note. If you feel weird writing nice things to yourself then pretend you are your best friend or your mom, heck, you can pretend to me. I would totally write you a letter reminding you how much you’re kicking ass and how you’ve got all the skills to go after what you want.
Weird, yes. Cheesy, yes. Totally helpful, YES!
Also! Today I’m hanging out with Sarah Von today hanging out content and design advice. Just like Fix-It Friday, but on a Wednesday and you get two Sarahs for the price of one. (OK, it’s free either way, but still – there’s TWO of us!) She’ll be handing out content tips and I’ll be giving ideas for whipping your design into shape, so come on over >>> (And don’t worry, Fix-It Friday will still run next Fri and if you’re lucky you’ll get two Sarahs then as well :)
