OK so today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I felt very irritable and just overall not thrilled for it to already be morning again. But I knew that was not how I wanted to feel for the rest the day, so something had to change. It took me a few hours to figure out what it would take to turn things around, but I did it and feel so much better.
What did I do? I let my hair blow in the wind. Yep, that’s right. I let my hair blow in the wind.
Do you remember when you were younger and you would drive around town with the windows down, your favorite song on, singing and dancing without a worry in the world? Well that was me this morning, I decided to go back in time.
After preschool drop off, I needed to go to Trader Joe’s and was still feeling ‘blah’ about the day. But then my favorite band (Coldplay) came on, playing one of my favorite songs (Hymn for the Weekend), so I rolled down the windows, turned up the radio and let my hair blow in the wind. It felt awesome.
And that was it. Now I feel much better and am ready to face the day. Sometimes it’s the little things.
So if you ever wake up on the wrong side of the bed, push yourself to find YOUR “hair blowing in the wind” moment. It will change your day. Happy Thursday!
