What’s In My “Morning Bag”?

While I was working on a post “What’s in my makeup bag?”, It got me thinking about “What’s in my morning bag?”. What I mean by this is: How and with what do I begin my mornings? What should I be starting my mornings off with?

A good start in the morning is not a guarantee to a perfect day, but starting my morning off with things like surrender and a grateful heart should be an ongoing motivation for me throughout the day. My attitude makes all the difference.

When I am down, my day is bad no matter what. But as soon as I choose to be grateful, it is amazing how much better I respond:

  • When something/someone annoys me
  • When someone speaks unkindly to me

  • When I mess things up

Having a God-centered, surrendered heart and choosing to look at life with a positive perspective, changes my day. When a test comes, it is easier to keep choosing what I have already chosen.

It is important what choices I make every day. Choices that I personally need to make every morning (and throughout the day) are:

  • Choose to be happy, to have grateful responses, to smile and to not let unnecessary things steal my joy.

  • Choose to read and to think about God’s word throughout the day.

  • Choose to take time to talk and listen to God.

  • Choose to think kindly of a certain person that I may be struggling with.

  • Choose to be motivated.

  • Choose to overcome my failures and shortcomings.

  • Choose to not compare myself with others. Whether it be out of pride (thinking I am better) or out of insecurity (thinking I will never be good enough).

I love putting on makeup and nice clothes  to brighten my appearance. But if my heart is sad it will not matter how hard I try to look beautiful and happy in my appearance, because what is on the inside will come out.

  1. I wake up and choose joy. I realized last year that choosing to be joyful is a decision that I could make from moment to moment and it’s changed my life. Thank you for this post and have an incredible day!
