November 24th 2016 / My favorite time of the day

I just love this time of the day.. before the sun rising. It is still dark and quiet. It looks as if the whole world would be still sleeping but me. I feel special … like everything I see and hear would be mine.. I am writing this as listening to classical music. For me, this is one of the happiest moment.

Since I started this journal and my morning ritual, I have noticed small happiness more. I can see how blind I was. I am still in the process but I know I am heading to the right direction. I just want to be more positive..

My morning ritual Day 38

1) Write down 3 acts of gratitude

I am grateful that I can notice a lot of things more. I am grateful that my new medication has been so helpful. I am grateful that I have not binged on junk food.

2) Write one positive experice within 24 hours.  Nothing special but I was at the park with my husband surrounded by colored trees eating some sweet and chatting yesterday . That kind of thing makes me realized and feel how fortunate I am.  I don’t need anything special to be happy.

3)Exercise for 15 minutes or more    30 minutes yoga

4) Meditation  15 minutes with my eyes closed

5)Write a letter to someone to express gratitude

Dear, Haruki Murakami  I really enjoy your books. I never liked reading before.  Reading books is one of the things I learn later in my life and I cannot believe what I was missing. I will be reading a lot for the rest of my life to make it up for it. I appreciate your work. Thank you.

6)The practice of becoming a generous person. I washed my husband’s dirty mug that was left on the counter. I would usually tell him to do it or ignore it. I am sure he wont even notice me doing it… which I would rather he didn’t. Also I gave him my last piece of pizza since he looked still hungry. haha

  1. Its sounds like a beautiful way to start the day, I can relate but more of when the world goes to sleep as I am a.bit of a night owl .. I really like your style of journaling, there is a lot of inspiration here .. Hope the rest of your day has been as beautiful as your morning .. 🙂

  2. Thank you for your comment! I read some of yours as well. It seems like we both are working on being positive. We could share our ideas to help each other. 🙂 Hope you are having a lovely day today!

  3. I think you have it pretty sussed already Nami .. I know practising gratitudes, exercise and fresh air definitely helped me through when I was going through difficult times (I couldn’t get to grips with meditation) .. The hardest thing is maintaining it so keep going and know that by your sharing you are inspiring .. 🙂

  4. Thank you for saying that. It means a lot to me.. For me, I need to see and feel the sun. The sun has a lot of power to offer to me. 🙂 Whenever I see the weather is good, I try to spend some time outside to soak all the good thing from it. 🙂
    I have been meditating once or twice a day for over a year every single day. Most of the day is only for a few minutes. It has made a huge impact in my life.
