For a long time the first thing I thought in the morning was “You’ve got to be kidding me…”
I am NOT a morning person, and the soft light waking me from our Lumie is UNwelcome. I’d kick straight into “ugh, jobs”. And that meant that my beloved Jimmy T received a full serve of my grumps every morning.
To be fair, I still make a grumbly grunting sound, but it’s a joke between us now, and I endeavour to follow it with a snuggle and a smile, but I definitely have room to grow here…
As I’ve said in previous videos; Long term love, depth, passion, and intimacy are built on a strong foundation of small, mundane, daily acts of love. And this tiny shift in attitude literally changes the whole way you start your day together.
So, here is my invitation for you to practice this simple act of love for < 5 minutes a day over the next month.
If you are new to this series you can check out other The Little Things practices here.
You know, the thing about a practice is that… well… it is a PRACTICE. That means that you may not be great at it to start. And that you may not even enjoy it initially.
My invitation to you for this coming month is to explore:
- How does it feel to do this practice?
- What specifically do I feel? Am I bored? Annoyed? Grateful? Joyful? Angry? Happy?
- Where specifically do I feel that in my body?
- What comes up for me when I do this practice?
- How is my relationship changing as a result of this practice?
I love hearing your messages & feedback as you are implementing – let me know how you go!
