In that moment, she decided that never again would she wake up a slave to the remnants of days before. From then on, she would start her days with the simplest of affirmations. Each morning, she would close her eyes, take a deep breath, and feel her way to the complete conviction that today is going to be one of those days.
One of those days when you’d swear that sunrise came just a little late, when you wake up rested and step sprightly into your morning routine. One of those days when the wind blows in just the right way, reminding you to relax a bit and go with the flow as it gently tassels your hair. The kind of day where the solutions to yesterday’s problems come effortlessly and with such ease that you can’t help but marvel at the way that new eyes can so easily wean simplicity out of the confounding and complex.
From that very moment on, she would take the time every morning to adjust her resonance until it aligns with that conviction. The conviction that today is going to be one of those days that feels like a river current, carrying her to precisely the right place at exactly the right time – when her heart and mind are as balanced and synched as the sun and moon in the sky, when she knows with a certainty that defies traditional understanding that her power to create is as broad as her capacity to dream.
From that moment, she took control of her life. She stole her mind back from the pages of yesterday’s story and applied it to the writing of something new, she let her heart expand, and released her creative genius from its timid cage.
From that moment on, she knew that it was up to her and her alone. She knew that everyday could be like a crisp autumn morning or a mild afternoon in spring, when anything seems possible because the feeling of change is so heavy on the air. From that moment she knew. She knew that, if she so decided, every single day could be so much more. She knew that every single day could be one of those days.
