Every morning when I wake up, I look in the mirror and say, “Today is going to be a good day.” I really do. And you know what, since I’ve been doing this, my days have been pretty good for the most part. Now, I’m not one of those people who believes in the “secret” and the whole concept of saying what you want and then getting it. I believe in knowing what you want and living with intention.
So if what I want is for my day to be good, I know that I have to base my intentions around that. For me, a HUGE part of this is living with spirit. In a way, we each have our own spirit that we bring to the table. Personally, I think I show spirit in the way of my quirkiness. Don’t laugh, but I believe that by showing people my authentic self (a very quirky one at that), I enable them to do so as well. This in turn creates positive energy that feeds the universe. With each passing day, I’m more and more convinced that this is 100% true.
My spirited quirky self is ever present in all facets of my life.
It showed up before my wedding with my grandmother. She’s never in her life worn a dress. Until I insisted…
It was present during a family reunion where I sported a high side ponytail and danced around like it was 1988…
It entertained my family as I pretended to win Miss America while holding my sister’s graduation flowers…
And it almost always comes out when I’m with my Vishnu. In fact, I think my quirky spirit has rubbed off on him. I have a video that serves as the perfect example of this, but I’ve been told not to post it. “Some things are not meant for the blog.” Boo!
Spirited “quirky” living is amazing. It’s helping me and those around me laugh and smile more. And that to me goes beyond having a good day, it leads to a good life.
