Imagine Your Perfect Day

Happy New Year!

I hope you celebrated last night - with memories of the good things in 2013, and plenty of hopefulness for 2014.

As we all know, while the New Year is a good time to look forward and plan, making New Years Resolutions invariably don't work.  So instead, I'd like to suggest something else to try.

Take some time today to imagine your perfect day.

Think about it in detail:
  • what time do you wake up
  • how do you wake up...with the voice of loved one, or the sun shining in the window or ...
  • what do you have for breakfast
  • who do you share your day with
  • what activities do you do
  • what is the weather like
  • what do you smell
  • what do you see
  • what do you touch
Think about it, using all your senses ....what would make your perfect day....all those tiny pieces...making choices that make you feel good ....or maybe its simpler than that and just one thing makes it a perfect day.....

Here's how mine starts out:  Woken, not before 8am, by Johnnie with a big smile on his face, bringing me in my glass of warm water with lemon. I can smell the citrus. In the background, I can hear Harold (parrot) singing along to his favorite breakfast TV show - Curious George or the Cat in the Hat.  Johnnie goes off to the kitchen, and he is singing too.  The sun is shining in the window and I get up to see birds and flowers in the garden......

Then when you have the whole day in your head - that's what you should think on throughout the year.  You should try and incorporate more and more things that make up your perfect day, into everyday.

What  a lovely thought....we go to make everyday a perfect day.

Yes, everything can be Tickety-boo. We are going through life, looking for ways to make life better by focusing on the good things because "we get more of what we focus on".  That way, life doesn't have to be perfect, but it can be Tickety-boo!

May Everything be Tickety-boo for you in 2014.
