A weird thing happened about an hour ago. After coming home from visiting my parents in Sunnyvale, I was feeling really tired and lazy.
I knew that a major procrastination episode was underway.
Then, I read a Facebook post by my friend about a "7 Days of Gratitude" challenge, outlining the many ways that she was thankful today. Her post inspired me and so I wrote my own 7 Days of Gratitude challenge, per her encouragement.
Let me be the first to declare that I don't believe in "the-universe-is-sending-me-positive-energy" bull****. I'm not religious either. So, whatever happened after posting my own 7 Days of Gratitude was beyond me to explain.
Maybe there is is something to be said about positive thinking, feel-good-mindset, or whatever. But after hitting the submit button I started working. I gained a boost of energy. Considering I was about ready to call it a night just an hour ago, shit was strange. It was as if I took the unlimited pill that Bradley Cooper took in Limitless.
I finished my lesson plan for the next day's class, created a handout for the Transfer Day event, then walked my dog Milo. Now I'm writing this post for my journal.
What happened there? Beats me. But if there is a muse, I certainly caught her attention with my positive energy that emanated out of my body after switching my mindset to focus on things that I am grateful for.
Here are three things that shifted in my thinking:
A bolt of energy went out, woke the muse from her slumber to helped me get moving.
I'm still feeling the impact now.
If only I can make this happen more often, summon the will when I need it the most, I would be soooo productive.
So, 7 Days of Gratitude challenge anyone???
