Thought for the day 2nd of May 2011
“Swallow a toad in the morning and you will encounter nothing more disgusting the rest of the day” by Nicholas Chamfort.
It is very important how you start the day, because you set a tone for your whole day in the morning. There is usually inertia in anything we do and once we started going a certain direction it becomes difficult to stop and change the course. Of course, it is possible, but it is better to prepare for each day in the morning. This world wants you to get into irritable, complain type mood every day. It is full of this kind of attitudes. Morning is the time when most people catch their moods for the rest of the day.
They get irritated for countless of reasons. They overslept alarm clock, could not find the clothes, breakfast was bad, neighbor did not greet them, there was a traffic jam, boss said something unpleasant when they arrived and the list could go on and on. But I have good news for you. You don’t have to react in this way. With the help of your attitude you can stay in a positive frame of mind.
Start the day from gratitude for what you have, for the good things that have happened in your life. If those negative things happen try to see how you could benefit from that. In this way you will stay in control of your emotions, feelings, mood and your actions. Outside circumstances should not dictate you how to feel, speak and behave. You are in charge of your actions. If you start the day that way, you will ‘switch yourself on a positive wave’ and positive things will keep coming through the rest of your day. So, don’t swallow those toads in the morning for they are going to spoil the rest of your day. Have some sugar instead.
