A collection of bite-size motivational nuggets of wisdom to start the day on a positive note

Don’t wake up and be mediocre

#MindU~~ There will be a day when you will never wake up again. Today is not that day! So make sure you use the time wisely. Be in a hurry because you will never have this moment again and you will never pass this way again. #MorningZenThought

A positive brain guarantees greater happiness

#MindU~~ You cannot be happy with a negative brain. For a faster, better, more intelligent brain, no rewiring is needed, as the greatest ability we have is to choose one thought over another. Choose happiness. Choose positivity. Then, take your brain with you. If you change the way you think, you will change the way you live. Smile ... and light up the world. #MorningZenThought

STOP watering a dead flower

#MindU~~ Growth can be challenging. Change can be painful. However, nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong. Stop looking for happiness in the same place you lost it in. Inhale your future, exhale your past. It's time for the next chapter. Start writing it today. Leave the past in the past. Move on. #MorningZenThought

Risk is better than regret

#MindU~~ Too many of us play safe. We are terrified that people might see who we really are, that they might find out our dark secrets or see our thoughts and fears. Our brains scream at us: You are such an impostor! You have made mistakes. You have been unkind. You have judged or treated people harshly. And yes, there are those who have done much worse. Today risk being different. Don’t live in the past. Bin the baggage. Love yourself more. Let others see the real you. Be kind! #MorningZenThought

Choose one thought over another

#MindU~~ We find inner peace the moment we decide to choose not to allow any other person or event to dominate our thinking or control our emotions. Life is simply 10% what we directly experience and 90% how we react. We spend 90% of our life thinking about what has, could, should have happened and 10% living the experience. What we think, we are and what we think, we become. Think today I AM A GIANT. Find happiness by letting go of the past; stop trying to live in future; simply be present in the moment. #MorningZenThought

The best learning opportunities are in your past mistakes

#MindU~~ Do you think about the past with regret? Do you regret past decisions? Your past is supposed to guide you, not define you. Make the past a place of reference not residency. You do not live there anymore. Find motives that go beyond yourself. No matter how broke you may be or how broken you feel, you have something to offer others – even if it’s something as common as a smile or a listening ear. When you finally realize that the secret to living is giving, your life will improve dramatically and you will be able to see how to move on from the past. So... 1. Stop losing yourself into the past - if we can't change the past, why do we continue to live it? 2. Stop ruminating in your past stories. Everything in life has a beginning and an ending. Make peace with the endings, especially…

Nothing is permanent in this Covid world – not even your anxieties or troubles!

#MindU~~ If you want change, you must take action. The greatest weapon against our stress and our anxieties  is our ability to choose action over inaction.  Today is the time for actions not words. Actions express priorities. And NOW is the time for to take massive, determined actions. You must be willing to let go of the life you had planned, so you can have the life that is calling you. Therefore if you want to conquer the anxiety of life, you must live in the moment, live in the very breath you breathe, and step bravely and ferociously into the life you can have. You don’t have to control your thoughts. You just have stop them controlling your actions and burying your dreams. #MorningZenThought

You don’t have to struggle in silence

#MindU~~ If you feel broken, you don’t have to stay broken as there is always hope, even when your brain is telling  you differently. What your mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor and more unashamed conversation. #MorningZenThought

You can do anything but not everything

#MindU~~ You are worth more than what you accomplish today. Look after yourself. You owe yourself the love you give so freely to others. #MorningZenThought

DON’T LOSE THE SPARKLE THAT DEFINES YOU

Do what’s right not what’s easy

#MindU~~ Anyone can call themselves a parent. A real parent is someone who puts their kids above their own selfish needs and wants. It Is not what you say that matters, it’s the investment in time and the role model behaviour you show that counts. So many of us fail in this. #MorningZenThought Photo by James Wheeler on Unsplash
