Waking up on a sunny morning toward the end of winter, when the sun already is well above the horizon and the birds are singing cheerfully, leaves me feeling that the day has gotten off to a good start. Even if the outside air is still quite chilly, spring is not far away!

Of course, the birds will sing anyway, even if it is cloudy and rainy, because nobody ever told them that meant it was dreary. They’re just happy that it is nest-building season and the earth is bustling with new life. Those birds could teach us a useful lesson about starting the day on a good note!

Word-art that says "One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day."

  2. Hi Meg, just wrote my post about my morning ritual, seems that our thoughts are the same today. Love to wake up with the birds singing, they are always ready no matter the weather. Have a lovely day my friend!

  3. The ritual of being positive balances the scale in our lives, and helps negate the negative trying to sneakily permeate our lives. Thank you for sharing with Nurturing Thursday!
