DAY 23: I Have Received! And Afternoons
For BabySteps we are starting a new group of routines; Afternoon Routines. These are individual chores that you need in your life, things that might benefit from being taken care of before you put your feet up after your workday. For me it's begin preparing for dinner. Chopping, mixing, marinating etc., so that food is just 20 minutes away or so.
For someone else it might be vacuuming, or doing laundry or the mission for the day, or administrative stuff, 30 minutes office hour...
The great thing about routines it that they hardly 'cost' any energy once the routine has been established. So figure out what you never seem to get done, put it in her 5min a day, for example :)
Mike Dooley on his side is asking us to Be Grateful, so it's your basic gratitude list - but only because gratitude for what we have received is an easy way to get into the 'receiving' state of mind - which in turn automatically will give us more. So in the list of great things you have received, add a few that are still to come, that you are grateful for ;)
It's a fun exercise:
Today I am grateful for my sponsor, a wonderful friend.
I am grateful for my dear friend who wants to see me tomorrow.
I am grateful for the dinner I'm invited to at another dear friends house, and for the joyous company she keeps.
