NOTE TO SELF: POSITIVE OUTLOOKS

I need to start keeping my notes to self in something as fab as this taped envelope! 

I need to start keeping my notes to self in something as fab as this taped envelope! 

As I write this note to self I'm in the middle of a subway car surrounded by people, lots of people. Some who smell, some with large annoying bags and some listening to loud music blaring from their headphones. I look into the car behind me and see the same scenario. I stand here thinking this is a sucky way of going to work each and everyday then I start thinking how nice it would be to have my car back. I quickly stop myself and think:

You woke up this morning. Those who matter most to you are safe and woke up too. You are headed to your job that you actually truly enjoy, I'm sure half these people on the train can't say that. You don't have to worry about traffic you can enter your subway car and people watch until your stop arrives. You can even close your eyes and listen to your random playlists to start your day.

Looking for the positives makes such a difference. There really is such beauty in life and we take things for granted all the time. It's time to stop, pray and thank God for the little things such as, I woke up today, in a warm bed, I had a shower, plenty of clothes to pick from even a number of umbrellas to select for this rainy morning. Blessings are everywhere. Time to focus only on the positives!
