This morning while taking my shower and getting ready for the day I was thinking about; how grateful I was for the things that I had at my disposal.
Toothbrush and toothpaste: If I didn’t have this toothbrush and toothpaste my mouth would feel like a herd of elephants had invaded it.
Clean Water: Have to love that warm water running all over your head and body. It feels so refreshing in the morning. In the winter time it just makes the bathroom all cozy with the steam.
Washing your hair: I am just so grateful for the shampoo and conditioner to make my hair smell so clean and look so fresh!
Body soap: All those soap bubbles with that nice fragrance making me feel squeaky clean. How refreshing can you get?
Bath towel: It is wonderful to step out of that shower and wrap that soft warm bath towel around you. The softness of it as you dry yourself off and get the extra water out of your freshly cleaned hair.
Blow Dryer and Curling Iron: Some may remember the days when you had to wash your hair the night before and hoped it got dry by morning. And sleeping in those rollers, now I have the curling iron. Got to love that! I just plug them in blow my hair dry and put in a little curl with the curling iron and away I go.
Little lotion: That nice lotion to put on the body and arms and legs makes you feel so soft. Can’t beat that!
Little antiperspirant under the arms can go a long way. It smells clean and keeps you feeling fresh all day long.
Wow a closet with clothes to pick from: What a great problem to have to figure out what to wear for the day. For myself I like the pastel colors. Always make me feel good.
As you are getting ready for a NEW day; think of all the blessing you have right in front of you? Ask yourself how your life would be if you didn’t have these blessing at your finger tips.
Yes, you may be having some problems that need solved, but when we start being grateful for the little things it is amazing how life can change.
Now I want you to visualize what your life would be like if you did not have accesses to the things you use in your morning ritual.
See you are having a better day than you thought.
With the right attitude at the beginning of the day our relationships with others well flourish.
I realize gentlemen that your morning ritual is a little different, so concentrate on those little things you use in the morning and be grateful.
And of course that cup of coffee in the morning just closes the deal!
P.S. Now sharing the shower with that partner when time allows realllly puts the icing on the cake for your morning attitude. (WARNING: small showers can be hazardous to your health.)
