This morning was ROUGH, I did not want to get out of bed. You know the feeling, your sheets are warm, your pillow is cold. If you sleep like me, the sheets are pulled up all the way to your nose. You are comfortable and dread getting out of bed to fight the cold air and rush to turn on the shower to turn on the hot water.
I set my alarm for 6:30am, because I was planning on getting up early and conquering my “case of the mondays” with a hearty breakfast, morning yoga and my KICKIN’ KOMBUCHA…..yeah…didn’t happen. Woke up at 7:30, got dressed, walked out the door. No Breakfast. No Yoga. No Kombucha. “Case of the Monday” was setting in fast.
Here I am complaining and being in a really bleh mood. I get to work, start my daily routine. Facebook. Twitter. Linkedin. Gmail. WordPress. Pandora. Logged in, ready to go.
I decide to take a little walk around the building, it’s a beautiful day, (as it has been lately here in Houston) and I needed to breathe some fresh air. Every day I see our security guard in the reception area of the building, say good morning and go on with my day. Today was different, he greeted me with a Good Morning Mr. Huggins, which I quickly had to tell him Mr. Huggins was my Fathers name. Not mine. I said goodmorning, and turned to go back up to the office. Then he said,
“Mr. Huggins, you are always so relaxed. I tell my wife every day, “there is this young man who walks in to the building, always looking so relaxed, so chill, and looks like nothing in the world can stop him,” What’s your secret?”
Note: He catches me after I have already walked around the building and had some serious praying time with God.
I tell him, ” I thank God everyday for how blessed I am and know that with him I can take on the world.”I tell him I will be praying for him and wish him a happy Monday.
A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, and realize how blessed you are.
Here I am: Awesome Loft, Money in the Bank, Car to Drive, Job to Work at, Friends, Family, Clothes to Wear, all things that many of us take for granted more than we should. So today, I challenge you. Just to say a prayer, and thank our Lord for how blessed we are, and thanking him for sending his ONE and ONLY son to die for our sins.
Happy Monday. Blessings,
