I am always glad for the morning to come. Glad for the sunshine. Glad for a new opportunity, a fresh canvas. Sometimes I wake up in the night after dreams and lay in bed and think about worst case scenarios. But one thing I am learning is that I would rather get up for a while and wait for the morning to come than lay in the dark. When I think of the morning I think about positive things. The sun is one thing that is out of my control that is good. It brings warmth and life to our planet. Why should I bother with worst case scenarios? The worst thing could happen and I would have to live with it. So why jump off that bridge before I get to it. I consider it trying to forge a habit, thinking about positive things on purpose when worries come. I read in a book recently that thoughts are like water, and that similar thoughts over and over develop a rut similar to a riverbed in your mind. Well, I am choosing to make new ruts, even if it takes the rest of my life to dig a new river. I have also learned over recent months that if you smile it makes you feel happier even if you were not happy to start with. So there.
