Today is Monday.
Not very much unlike any other of the millions of Monday's we all experience.
Except that for me, my thought process and outlook and behavior have changed since I made the committment to never, ever again break any agreement I have with myself.
I agree to KNOW and TRUST myself better than anyone else
I agree to LOVE, HONOR and CHERISH myself
I agree to be KIND to myself
I agree to be WHOLE, HEALTY and COMPLETE
I agree to NEVER abandon myself to try and fix the self-abandonment of others
I agree to live my life FULLY and on PURPOSE
I agree to live and GROW in every present moment
I agree to be GRATEFUL for being aware that every experience is an opportunity for GROWTH!!
Keeping these agreements and frequently discovering new ones keeps my light shining. It promotes highly contagious inner and outward peace that spills over and infects anyone I come in contact with.
Not every rousing, "Good Morning!" greeting that I gave away today was reciprocated, or even worse it was at least once answered with, "Hi, how are you?" and when I replied "I'm GREAT!" returned a skeptical "WHAT, but today's Monday..." - to which I gently and slowy replied for maximum dramatic effect "Yes, yes it is Monday and it represents a whole new week to be grateful for brand new opportunities of good stuff." I have never had anyone argue with positivity. They usually nod and sometimes actually say "You know what, you're right."
