Moving from P.M. to A.M.
Thursday, September 06, 2012
I'm trying to shift my thinking from P.M. to A.M. Does this mean that I've decided to become more of a morning person? No, I actually already am more of a morning person. I start out pretty motivated in the morning and then it slowly trickles away as the day goes on. However, as I said it's not about being perky in the morning.
P.M. stands for Poor Me. It's a syndrome which I fall into far too easily. The self absorbed mood doesn't help motivate me. It's also something which I logically know can hinder my day. However, it's also a bit seductive and easy to slip into.
Lately I've been thinking that I need to find a way to combat the P.M. attitude. The antidote? A.M. thinking. A.M. stands fro Abundant Miracles.
Unlike Poor Me, Abundant Miracles aren't all about me. When I think of the abundant miracles in my daily life, they can involve wonderful things happening to me, but to others that I know as well. It also helps me feel connected instead of isolated.
So is this an easy fix? No, far from. It's going to be a daily, hourly effort to shift my thoughts over. I know that it'll be worth it and get easier each time I choose the healthier feelings. Perhaps it will spider out into other elements of my life which involve doing what I can in the moment I've been given. It is a wonderful moment after all.
