You wake up and you’re not in the mood. You’re waiting for the right feeling. You’re waiting and still you don’t feel it. It might be taking time to meditate. It might be returning a phone call. It might a letter you need to write or posting a blog you’ve been postponing. It might be having a difficult conversation.

I turn on some music. It helps me get in the mood…I go to ITunes and select the classical link under Radio. Then I click on Whisperings. It’s solo piano music to soothe the mind. I’ve been listening for years. I begin to write…words are coming to my fingers. Yes there is no other way. At some point we have to just do it and let go of the reasons and excuses not to move forward. Now is the time.

This is it. I know it’s Monday morning and you haven’t got into the groove. Actually it’s the first work day of the new year. So this is the moment. Yes you can think about things you wish were different. But you still have to face this moment.

Make the best of it. Each moment is going to be like this. It just is. Be grateful for it. Make the best of it. Be productive.

Don’t waste this time. As you move forward and stay focused, before you know it you’ve completed your first project of the day. Ah, how does that feel? Pretty good. Now you have some momentum. Build on it and get on the positive side of change.
