I felt happy, grateful and joyful this morning. I'm not really an early riser, and as much as I want to cuddle my pillows for the rest of the morning, I simply can't. The more I try to spend my time on bed, the more I lose my appetite in accomplishing those things that I needed to finish for the day.
Exclaiming joy in the start of the day helps determine responses all throughout the day. I felt courageous when I said no to a colleague in doing her errands. Not because I can't, but because I have my own reason not to. I'm not used to declining when somebody asks for help, but it seemed like it was what I needed. She's not used to being rejected, but well, I have to respect myself enough.
I felt light today, just because I wore something that also made me feel good. I know I won't be able to meet a lot of people but I still dressed up, in a presentable manner. Not for the people that I would meet for the day, but for myself. Haha! I used to not care with how I look, but today, it made me realized that dressing up could actually make me feel better. Indeed, it made me feel good! It's true then that the way we dress up and what we wear can also help build our confidence in facing the day and what could be in front of us. May I keep this in mind every day! Hurray!
