Momentum Monday


With summer coming (or finally here for some) let’s enjoy it and not start complaining about how hot and humid it is for another few months or so, ok? 🙂

Sorry, couldn’t help that because we’ve had such a long winter and people have been complaining (including me) about how cold it is and how long and drawn out the winter has been.

But we humans frequently have a very short memory and after it’s been hot for a few weeks (or days in some instances), we forget that it wasn’t very long ago that we were wearing 10 layers of clothing to keep warm and building muscles shoveling snow.

Unfortunately, our short memory extends to other aspects of our life. We tend to forget how great things have been and focus only on what’s going “wrong”. It’s really our responsibility to find those “Kodak Moments” and burn them into our memory for future use.

When you wake up in the morning before you get out of bed, find something satisfying and enjoyable to think about so that you can develop your momentum on a high plane (a high flying disc as Abraham would say). Think about your pillow, about your bed, about how comfortable and special you feel just lying there in bed. Don’t reach too deeply. Don’t even reach for someone next to you because that’s liable to remind you of something that happened yesterday that could bring your momentum down.

Sleep halts your momentum. It quiets your mind just as meditation does. That’s what you want in order to start up momentum the way you want it. You want to start over in a sense. Since your mind has been quieted and the momentum engine has been shut down, you can put the key in the ignition and start a new, beautiful and satisfying momentum up in the morning. When you get out of bed see how long that high flying momentum lasts. Initially it might not be very long at all. But if you keep practicing this every morning, after a few weeks or a month or so, you’ll be amazed at how it carries you through the day.

Try it tomorrow when you first wake up.
