“Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today” – Pam Grout

soul-eyesThis post from Pam Grout came to me last week:

Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today.

I have left the message in my Inbox so when I open my e-mail every morning the words “Something amazingly awesome is going to happen to me today” greet me.

Is there a more positive way to start the day? I don’t think so.

When I live with that thought in mind, I surge with energy and attack the day with vigour. It puts me in a mindful place, so I look for “amazing” in events around me. It centers me in gratitude, so I celebrate many seemingly simple things as amazingly awesome: the brilliant red cardinal in my birdbath—awesome; getting all the green lights on my way to the store—awesome; the view from the hilltops of Gatineau Park—awesome; the ability to hike up the hills of Gatineau Park for a whole day with a healthy body and no sore muscles—amazingly awesome.

This simple phrase has a profound (amazingly awesome) effect on the nature of my day. I hope it will for you, too.
