Do you ever wake up grumpy in the morning? Ever sit down for breakfast in a sour mood, sending all nearby neighbors in the opposite direction or make them wish they were sitting at a different table?
A depressed attitude is not a good place to be, and definitely not a necessary mood to entertain.
God didn’t make you grumpy!
God is your Mind, and that Mind is filled with inspired points of view, reasons to rejoice and gratitude. If you’ve not feeling inspired in the morning, then you just haven’t awakened yet. So, it’s time to wake up, to wake up to reality.
The reality is that life is spiritual. It’s not a series of events happening over time. It’s Spirit’s ever-unfolding goodness making an impression on your life through spiritual mindedness. To participate, it helps to stay spiritually minded, awake and alert to spiritual messages coming from God.
We can’t just roll out of bed half-dazed and aimlessly wander through our days and expect the results to be reliably fun and enjoyable. We need to put in some effort, some prayer and study, to stay spiritually minded and in mental touch with God’s goodness. That’s part of waking up in the morning. And it’s part of keeping ourselves in a good mood.
Waking up is not just opening our eyelids. It requires us to open our thought.
Open thought to what? To God, to good, to infinite divine Love!
We can’t stay in a grumpy mood if we’re doing our job of being receptive to God’s omnipresent love for one and all. The more we see how much God loves us, the more we love others. Love displaces grumpiness. One can’t be a dark sink hole and a bright ray of light at the same time.
You can choose to be a light.
So, no more grumpiness in the morning. Wake up. Wake up to reality, to God, and let your light of spiritual inspiration shine.
Put in the effort it takes to be a positive influence on neighbors, family and friends. It’s a much happier way to start the day.
