I was just asked by the barista how my day has been and I answered honestly, “The best ever.”
Simply put, the guy was shocked.
Nothing extra-ordinary has happened today. The reason Tuesday has been great is all about my attitude. I just decided that today is magical and am now trying to live into that intention. 🙂
Here’s the breakdown:
Woke up again at the insistence of the little voice in my head that says my better self would do it.
Brushed my teeth, did 10 min of yoga, 5 min meditation, 5 min energizing my vision board. Then I made my favorite smoothie of all time, what I like to call the Sunshine Smoothie (if I tasted part of the sun, this is what I think it would taste like). Then I took my smoothie on a walk around the neighborhood soaking in actual sun rays!
Sunshine Smoothie Recipe:
1/2 cup coconut water
4 leaves dino kale
1 cup frozen mango
Blend until smooth and enjoy!
I suddenly had an impulse to clear some more articles of clothing from my closet and found a bagful to take to Crossroads Trading Co. I ended up selling a few things before heading downtown to meet my friend Charlie for our weekly lunch at Cafe Bernardo (we both had salad and butternut squash soup).
It’s been so difficult to get myself into a positive morning routine, that already a few days in I’m elated with my progress! Plus, the past few days I’ve forgone my usual espressos at my favorite downtown spots in favor of saving money and staying home. So today, I treated myself with the money from the clothes sale and am now enjoying the most delicious soy latte I’ve ever tasted.
Last night I went out to dinner with my mom and her friend Anna O’Malley who works in the women’s prison in Riverside (Southern California) helping to implement integrative medicine into the system. Our conversation was so exciting and I have more to share. Expect a post on this topic soon.
In the meantime, how fabulous is this day for you? Best ever? Why not! The only moment you ever live is this one right NOW.
