Have you ever woke up in the morning irritated and angry? That was me this morning. I woke up and instantly felt ticked off. I gruffly made the coffee mumbling to myself. I then headed in to do my morning dance. I dance every morning for thirty minutes just upon waking. This does a number of things for me. It gets me my recommended daily exercise, and dancing make me feel happy. So I put on some Lady Gaga and danced like I was the last of the solid gold dancers. Ultimately at the end of the thirty minutes the feelings of irritation were just about gone. The next thing I do in the morning is meditate. I sat, made myself comfortable and put on the sound scape station on television. I then proceeded to meditate for the next half an hour. At the end of my meditation I was feeling even better. The anger and irritation seemed like a distant memory. However, as I continued on with my morning routine I felt perplexed. I just want to know what could have caused the anger. I went to bed happy. Why wouldn’t I wake up happy?
Finally I was able to pour myself a cup of coffee and sit down with my journal. I began to write about how I felt upon waking. It is most likely attached to a dream I was having just before waking. I did the inventory of my life. I have no reason to be in a bad mood. Life is good. So a dream is the best explanation I can come up with. unfortunately I cannot remember what it was about. I am sure there was a lesson to be learned within this dream if only I could remember it. I have been working quite a bit on dream recall and intuitive thinking, so I have to ask myself if this could be something I am intuitively picking up on? I find myself conflicted. On one hand I am to head the messages of my body, and one the other hand I have chosen to live in the now. Therefore, even if my intuition is trying to warn me that I am going to be faced with an angry situation I am not going to worry about it. I am simply going prepare myself and stay calm. I am going to handle whatever comes my way with the grace that God gave me.
Maybe the lesson here is that I have the strength to handle every situation with grace. I get better every day. That’s what its all about, becoming a little better every day. I realized yesterday that I am a work in progress as we all are, but I am my favorite project. I hope to become everything God wants me to be. I hope to fulfill my purpose and help people in some way. One minute at a time. Because that’s how I roll.
Have a blessed day 🙂
