Yesterday’s writing prompt goes well with my morning thoughts today.
When and where do you do your best thinking? In the bathroom? While running? Just before bed, or first thing in the morning? On the bus? Why do you think that is?
The answer to that is ‘in the morning’ or ‘while walking’. Now I don’t walk all that much, but I do remember those long walks to work in the mornings. Did some good thinking back then. When you walk, the only thing you can do is to put one foot in front of the other and let your thoughts flow freely.
In the mornings, I feel as if my mind has been charged overnight, like the iPhone. Fully charged, and ready to go. Besides, I start off my mornings by reading blogs. That’s number three of my morning activities; current news, email and blogs. Hence, I get a lot of inspiration there. More so today, than usual — one post was as if I was reading a confirmation of what I started to think about the other day.
In Facebook, of all places, someone had posted a, sort of, quote. That’s about all I see in my Facebook stream … quotes, cute animals and those ‘shares’, ending with “I know who you are who won’t put this on your wall for an hour”. Ridiculous and maddening. Now, this one was good, and I’m going to share it here with you!
Items #3 and #5 stood out a bit more than the others! Nowadays, I perhaps don’t speak bad about myself, but my inner thoughts are mostly negative and that needs to change. It won’t be easy to change my own thought process after all these years, but I’m sure going to do it. Notice, how I said ‘going to do it’! I’m not going to try to do it. If I try I have only fifty percent chance of succeeding … I don’t know why I think all those defeatist thoughts about ME?! I like ME! Partly, it’s due to the culture in which I grew up [Jante], but that doesn’t mean I have to live with it, now that I’ve become aware of it.
