Attitude Worth Catching

Aug 03, 2023

I didn't catch any fish this morning, but I did catch a great attitude to start my day. 

I am officially off the road and up in Northern Minnesota at my parent's cabin. It is one of my favorite places in the entire world. Maybe because it’s full of memories and every time you’re here, you just feel calm and joyful, grateful and happy.

I woke up pretty early this morning and decided I should go down to the lake to complete my morning routine. I like to call this process Setting The Stage. What do you do to set your stage every day?

For me, this is how it normally goes:

  1. Align my chakras. 

I close my eyes. I stand out in nature if I can, and I sink my feet into mother earth's energy. I asked mother earth's energy to come up through the ground and go through each of my seven chakras from my root to my sacral to my solar plexus to my heart to my throat to my third eye to my crown. I ask her to clear anything that is blocking me and to place perfect circles of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, and light purple/pink/golden energy on top of my head. It only takes me a few minutes, but it does help me to be aligned with the right energy for the day and to clear out anything that was stuck and stale from the day before.

  1. Meditation.

The next thing I do is meditate. Sometimes it’s only two or three minutes, sometimes it’s 20 minutes, and every now and again it’s longer than that. This is where I close my eyes and I really think about what I’m trying to accomplish, where I’m going, and allowing me to be in the precious present moment. Sometimes I use a guided meditation like I did today. Sometimes I listen to high-frequency music and I do my own thing. There is no right or wrong. You just have to do what energetically feels good to you.

Today I actually started a new meditation challenge by Gabby Bernstein. It’s called The Body Love 21-Day Challenge. It was a really great way to start July 1st with the intention of loving my body more. If you’re so inclined, join along with me.

  1. Breathing.

I love to start my morning with a few deep breaths to really help me feel good. My process is in for five seconds, hold for five seconds, and out for five seconds. I usually do this 3 to 4 times. If I’m feeling really anxious or stressed throughout the day, this is also my go-to technique.

  1. Set my intention for the day.

The next thing I do is set my intention for the day. What is one thing I want to do today to feel joyful, centered and grateful? That is what I ask myself as I start my day, today being at the lake I am thinking about how I can be present in the moment here, and truly enjoy the beauty around me.

  1. Smile.

This might seem a little awkward, but a great big smile to start your day makes you feel good. I love to have a big smile on my face for just a couple of seconds as I focus on the feeling of gratitude. Even though it seems a little strange, I think you should try it. As you can read in a past blog post, I also set my alarm for 11:11 every day to smile, I learned this little phrase from a good friend of mine called the Smile Revolution. Join me today bright and early in the morning and at 11:11 and put a great big smile on your face. If you’re having a crappy day, I promise you this will help shift your energy and make you feel a little better.

I love the bald eagles soaring on the lake, the loons chattering in the morning and evening, and the majestic trees surrounding the beautiful, clean, clear lakes of Northern Minnesota. This is my happy place. My hope is that you have one of these too. And even though I didn’t catch any fish this morning on my mimmick minnow, I did catch a great attitude to start the day. My hope is that you can start your day today or tomorrow or whenever you read this with the same kind of joyful attitude. I hope that today you have an attitude worth catching.

Love and light my friends,
