rise & shine


As you wake to another day do you feel rested, free from burdens? Or are you worn down, tired? What’s going on in your life may be affecting your mornings. Some nights might bring mornings filled with excitement, joy and purpose but if you’re in a valley, mornings can be rough. 

Are you experiencing lows in your life right now? Too much on your mind to rest? Brain won’t shut up? I’ve been there too many times. But I want you to know, that this will pass. 

What’s going on in your life right now may be affecting your mornings, but it doesn’t have to affect your day. Today is a new day filled with amazing opportunities. So, before you put your feet on the floor, lie there, in the quiet. Concentrate on your heartbeat, your breathing. Even though things may appear dark, take a moment to reflect on the good things going on in your life right now. Take notice of the sun greeting you as it peeks through the window, focus on being grateful to embrace another day. Think about the opportunities this day holds as you rise and plant your feet firmly on the floor. Prepare yourself to shine your light and make your impact on the world.
