Good luck and I agree we must move forward focusing on the future and not the past. This week has been stressful and extremely busy and will continue through next week for me. I have had little urges/etc due to I have had little time.. But like you mentioned above it is amazing how you can go from none to all of a sudden the P demon is staring you in the face!!! I have been focusing on what is called the 1st 15. That is the first 15 minutes of my day are spent in the Bible and Prayer. Funny thing is sometimes I just "check the box" to get this done but when I go to it with intent and purpose it's amazing how GOD speaks to me. This sets my day up for success and creates a mindset. Happy December RN and praying for this site.
I really like this post JerryTX. Though not a religious man myself and I may be somewhat missing your point here, I have being doing a wake up exercise & meditation routine before I do literally anything else. I do this almost every morning and it also takes around 15 or 20 minutes. I just wake up that much earlier to fit it in.
This morning was honestly a textbook 'check the box' situation but it is still amazing to me with even just 'checking the box' how something like this first thing in the morning can completely change your day. It really 'sets up the day', prepares, focuses and puts you into a much better mindset for dealing with even the more difficult parts of the day.
