Today is a very special day with a once-in-a-lifetime date. How will you make it memorable?
Is there a habit that you’re ready to start? Or give up? Something (or someone) that you've been avoiding? Today can be the day you choose to begin changing things for the better.
Maybe today is the day you start to meditate. Or you return to meditation. Or write in a journal.
Maybe it’s the day you pick up the 500-pound phone and dial someone who your heart has been urging you to call. Maybe you make – or accept – an apology.
Maybe it’s the day you begin to ask for what you need – out loud. Or maybe it’s the day you begin to trust the voice that tells you to say, “No.”
Maybe it's the day you make an appointment with a doctor, a therapist, or a coach.
Maybe it’s the day that you reduce your social media time by 5 minutes, 15 minutes, an hour. Or you start learning French.
Maybe it’s the day you pick up “Anna Karenina” and begin to read. Or put down the book that you just can’t get into even though “everyone else” loves it.
Maybe it’s the day you ask your boss for a one-on-one so you can share your concerns about the team. Or so you can tell her how much you love working with her.
Maybe it’s the day you go for a walk, a run, a first-ever visit to a yoga studio. Maybe it’s the first day when you give yourself 15 (or 2) minutes to do absolutely nothing.
Maybe today is the day you start making a daily gratitude list. Maybe it’s the day you start looking yourself in the mirror and saying, “I love you more than I can say.” Maybe it’s the day you start giving free hugs.
Here’s what I’m doing today: I am starting to trust more and worry less. I am releasing my belief that I am worth more when I do more. I am reaching out and breaking isolation. I am banishing multitasking. And I am making myself accountable by telling all of you. I know I may slide into the old habits again and again. But today I’ll make a start. And that’s worth celebrating.
2-22-22 can be the anniversary of a significant change in your life. What will it be? I’d love to know.
Here you'll find some of my thoughts about communication, contemplation, yoga, life and various other topics. Thanks for giving them a read.
