There seems to be more cloudy days in the Winter. Perhaps it is only that I notice them more when the days are already shorter and sunlight is in need. Either way, turning on the sunlamp this morning restored a little energy but also a little sense of personal power. To know that I had the power to give myself what I need.
As I sat down to write, I thought about waking early and the sun lamp that I have often expressed gratitude for in the past. I wondered how I could express it in a new way today. After all, it is important to not get stuck on repeating the same gratitudes. And just like that a song popped into my head.
"I've got sunshine on a cloudy day.... when it's cold outside, I've got the month of May." It brought back memories from childhood and of the movie My Girl. And more importantly it gave me that feeling of pep again.
I'm grateful for the idea of sunshine on a cloudy day. I'm grateful to be able to turn on the "sunshine" with a simple click. I'm grateful when Mother Nature provides the best, warm sunshine so I can get it from its natural source. I'm grateful for the song that popped into my head and gave me that little pep this morning. I'm grateful to start this day on a happy note and with hopeful optimism.
What tiny acts give you a sense of personal power? What songs inspire and uplift you in the morning?
May today bless you with light and laughter. May you find support in music and warmth in love. Have a beautiful day!
