I took a walk today to grab my cinnamon-y, warm, yummy chai and took special notice of my surroundings. The brilliant sun warm on my face and the crisp, clean chilly air moving all the leaves about releasing some of them wildly into the air. Loads of bright colors everywhere informing me that Autumn has arrived and the holidays aren’t far behind. I was struck by how immediately I was affected. I awoke somewhat tired on this Sunday morning with the urge to remain snuggled up watching movies all day, and remembering all the work waiting for me – but I saw the sun shinning through the crack of the curtains, and was moved to get up. Suddenly, as I opened the door to the bright sunshine and breezy wind and began to walk… I was struck by how quickly my mood was transformed. I felt motivated, inspired and energized – Just a reminder to myself and all of you that changing one’s environment can frequently make an immediate and significant shift in one’s attitude and behavior!
Just try it and see for yourself, it’s truly empowering!
