I’m feeling somewhat inspired, grateful, and determined. To do what you may ask? Let me explain. I didn’t feel too great this morning both physically and emotionally. First of all, it was dark, rainy, and dreary when I left for work so I wasn’t as cheerful as I usually am. Although I went to bed super early around 9 pm last night, this morning I felt extremely tired. I was literally dragging. In addition, I had a slight headache which led me to pray it wouldn’t turn into a dreaded migraine and have me bedridden for the next 8 hours with nausea, overheating, and misery. And, emotionally I was simply tired of being disappointed by others & letting myself down in seemingly minute things. Once I finally muddled into work and settled in, I immediately decided to go for a walk to clear my head, sort out my feelings, and smell the beautiful gardenias on the small gardenia trees on campus. Needless to say, I never smelled the gardenias because the bees were busy doing their thing around them and I didn’t want to get in their way. I’ve never been stung by anything before and it’s just not on my to-do list. I’m thrilled about how determined I was to feel better and to feel more positive today. I’m inspired and grateful because the sun decided to make an appearance after all! While walking I saw a grayish colored toad about the size of a dime briskly hopping down the sidewalk as if he had somewhere to be. I literally stopped in my tracks to bend over and watch him go! Then I saw a bird with a reddish colored mohawk on his head and matching beak taking a stroll in the grass. I was like wow! He was doing his thing too. By this time I was in such a great mood and felt like I could accomplish everything that came my way today. I’m proud of my determination to intentionally adjust my attitude. Yes, I’m a work in progress and very grateful. Yay me! What’s your take?
