When I rolled over this morning to turn off my alarm, the first thought in my head was, “oh man, how am I going to get this all done today?”
I was already feeling overwhelmed.
The clock showed 5:45 am.
Not a great start.
So I head in to check on my youngest son and find his little sweaty body in bed with a roaring fever.
My 2nd thought of the day was, “Shit. I have too much to do to handle a sick kid today.”
I work very hard to be a positive person but it just wasn’t happening,
So I head downstairs to make some much-needed coffee and for some reason I turn chack Pinterest on my phone – I never do that.
The first thing I saw was a quote from Deepak Chopra.
“All Great Changes are Preceded By Chaos” – Deepak Chopra
Must’ve been a sign from the Universe for me to shut up, stop whining, and and get it together.
I mean, WTH? Everyone has bad days. Successful people have bad moments just like everyone else on the planet. It’s cool. It will pass.
It reminds me of what my mentor, Cathy Wagner, once told me. “Jane, don’t worry about it too much. Oftentimes the big breakDOWN comes just before the big breakTHROUGH.”
So my third thought of the day (and I’m sticking with this one) is, “Since I now know that ‘all great changes are preceded by chaos’, it’s clear that I am on the verge of greatness!”
Have a great day – ‘cuz you’re probably on the verge of greatness too!
