“Life is very interesting… in the end, some of your greatest pains, become your greatest strengths.”
~ Drew Barrymore
I’m on a Drew Barrymore binge this week 🙂 I love watching her movies, she has the greatest sense of style & individuality. I’ve admired her since I was a teenager; her cool hippy personality & child-like excitement for life has always inspired me, & she’s probably one of the reasons why I’m such a hippy.
Also, Drew’s my birthday twin, which is just plain awesome 🙂
Speaking of AWESOME! How are you today? Smiled at yourself in the mirror yet? I hope so 😀
My Wednesday is coming to an end, but I know for most of you it has just begun – & you can make of it whatever you like! Even if it hasn’t started out exactly the way you wanted it to, if you’re feeling the stress of the holiday season or if you just woke up grumpy, YOU have the power to turn it all around.
My day today didn’t start off the greatest. The past three mornings I’ve been woken up at the crack of dawn by our upstairs neighbours hammering & doing renovations. Our walls are already thin enough that we can hear our neighbours flushing their toilets, so the hammering sounds like it’s happening right in our apartment. I’m usually a pretty ‘zen’ person, but loud, constant knocking on the walls while I’m trying to sleep is enough to drive me insane in the membrane.
Yes, it’s frustrating at the time, but I don’t let it determine the rest of my day. As soon as I’m out of bed, it’s out of my mind. I smile, stretch & let it go. I know that I can choose whether or not it affects my mood & my day. And now, it’s almost midnight, & I can honestly say I’ve had a really great day 🙂 I even forgot about the hammering until I started writing this post.
If your day didn’t start out the way you would have liked it to, the rest of your day can still be Awesome, with a capital ‘A’!
You have the power to create your day, so don’t give it to someone else – even if it seems like people are hammering your walls down to get it 😉
