Tell Me Something Good #131

I had the most wonderful Monday today. So let’s make one thing clear: Monday is not a bad day! It’s a day just like Tuesday or Wednesday, or Thursday. Maybe not as awesome as Friday but it’s a great day. And I struggle with bashing it. So let’s cherish Monday! Cherish it because it is the beginning of a new week. A week you can take charge of, a week you should look forward to because it will bring you many great moments.

So let’s start this week on a positive.

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

• Share this post and invite your followers as well.

You know it by now! We are not moving any further without a little happy dance. It really doesn’t matter which style of dancing you like. Just do it. Just dance! Maybe you dance with a group of friends… even if they are different than you, or just by yourself. In any case: Have some fun!

Shake those feathers and move those feet… And when you are sure that you are done (hey, you can always add some more rounds after reading the rest of this post…) here is what I’d like to share with you all today:

“I had the most amazing day today. I decided that I would tackle the beginning of the new week a bit slower than the last couple of weeks. Read a bit, watch some inspiring videos and then go to the beach. Nothing wrong with that. It was a gorgeous day here, 30C and sunny and the beach was just wonderful. The water was nice (not icy), there was only a slight breeze and just a handful of people as lucky as I am. I love to dip my feet in the water this time of the year because it will give me a chill. The water here is basically always cold and no matter of having had a couple of warm days, it wasn’t any different today. But I decided I want more. So found a spot where the water seemed slightly warmer than elsewhere, applied the 5 second rule (counted from 5 backwards) and started to swim. This first moment, when the cold water almost takes your breath away… you know that one? So I was in, swimming a couple of strokes and then I couldn’t help but getting to a more shallow part and stand up. I had goosebumps although the air was very warm. But I knew that from here on it would be so much easier to get back into the water. I swear, it was amazing. I still feel refreshed, although it’s still hot outside. There are so many parallels we can draw in life. Like today with getting into the water. Sometimes we just have to jump, or emerge ourselves in what seems slightly uncomfortable to then find that it’s actually well worth while…”

Have gentleness in your eyes and loving-kindness in your smile. I love this. We should approach every day like this. Although it’s no longer Monday on my side of the planet, it’s still time to make this week a good one. A positive one. Let’s tackle the week with gentleness and loving-kindness. To ourselves and to others.

Let’s kick this week off on a positive note:

It’s easy:

• Mention something that you consider being good in the comments

• Or write a post about it on your blog (please don’t forget the pingback if you do so I don’t miss out and also share the link to it in the comments below). Something good that happened to you recently, or something good you will experience in a little while, or something good you know will happen soon. Something that makes you feel good.

You know it by now! We are not moving any further without a little happy dance. So shake those hips and whatever else you need to shake and dance…

Keep it up for as long as you want and once you are done here’s what I like to share with you this week:

“I’m flat out! So much to get on top of. With my business but also with my volunteer work. And of course there is the family as well. I’m not stressed out. Not at all. I’m doing one step at a time but sometimes something has to give and in the moment it’s my blog. I can’t fit it in at the moment. Often I’m mentally too exhausted to sit down and come up with a good post. The mind has to be free in order to write. Don’t you think? My mind is occupied with so much at the moment. I know it will get better. You are probably wondering what the positive is here? Well I’m here writing this and you are here reading this and that’s amazing. I love our little community we have here. The support, the encouragement we give each other. I appreciate you being here right now and reading this. This is my happy moment, my something good I want to share with you. Because although I’m not posting the way I used to do, you are still here reading this. So thank you! Thank you for kicking my week off in a positive way :-)….”

Loosen up a little bit. Do it, I know you want to. Shimmy… and another round… and another one… I know you want to do another round 😉 And when you are done here is what I’d like to share with you today:

“I finally got into my yoga habit again. It feels so good to be back. At this stage is just at home as I’m trying to figure out when best to head out to a yoga studio but it’s enough and it makes me feel good. I read a post earlier today on Out An’ About about how good it feels to only focus on what you are doing at the very moment instead of hanging on to the thoughts that wear you down. Yoga does that for me too. You are in the moment, you focus on your breath on your moves and somehow you stop thinking. And when you then get back out of it you feel so much better. It clears the mind.”

Before we start though, think about treating yourself to something you enjoy. Like a little massage. Or a back rub. Who doesn’t like a back rub, right?

Are you enjoying it? Doesn’t it feel good? Keep enjoying it. For as long as it lasts. I think back rubs are never long enough… Another round? Sure! Go for it! Remember: You’re worth it!

And when you are ready, let me share what I’m looking forward to this week:

“Although Halloween is not as big here as it is over in the States, we still celebrate it. I know it’s still a week away but the excitement has gotten to me. This week will be about decorating the house and lots of chats with my daughter about who might dress up as what.

Although it’s on a Monday this year, we will still get to sleep in the next day as the first Tuesday of October is Cup Day and a public holiday here. It’s when horses stop a city. We will have our friends over again on Halloween, enjoying good food, great company and a round of trick or treating in the neighborhood. I love seeing the excitement in our children’s eyes when they wait for their friends to arrive, wondering what they are dressed up as and then going door to door to collect treats. Then it will be play time and for us time to sit down and relax, probably also chatting about which horse will get over the finish line first the next day.”
