What is Your Morning Ritual?

What is your morning ritual?

"Motivation is what gets you started; habit is what keeps you going."  
- Jim Ryan

When you open your eyes in the morning, what's the first thing you see?  What's the first thought you have?  Is it "Good Morning God!" or "Good God!  Morning!"?  

Do you stretch and smile, thinking of the adventures of the day top come or do you hit the snooze button and glance at the alarm clock, hoping you've got ten more minutes to avoid the "chores" of everyday life?

Whatever way you begin the day (those very first five minutes) sets the tone for your entire day.  If you begin it in joy and gratitude, you'll discover that the day presents you with so much to be joyful and grateful for.  

"What if I work at a job I hate?'
"What if I'm unemployed and it's another day of online job hunting?"
"What if I'm in a loveless marriage?"

Give me any scenario you want that seems negative and I'll tell you the same thing: Embracing everyday for the gift of life it is is the ONLY way to get from where you are to where you want to be.

More darkness will not brighten a pitch black room.  If you want to see, you'll have to turn a  light on.  The same applies to starting your day.  No matter what you face, make the choice to wake up everyday "turning the light on" in your life.
