Both Ron and Bill had the same responsibilities in the morning. Yet, how they went about their morning contrasted widely.

Ron before leaving bed reached for his phone and checked the news. Immediately his blood pressure rose. While staring at this phone, he half heartedly kissed his wife on the cheek, scoffed down some microwaved oatmeal, and rushed to his car. Ron nearly hit his neighbor pulling out of his driveway since he only looked one way.

Here’s how Bill spent his morning.

Bill upon waking, reached over and told his wife he loved her. He listened gently while the birds chirped joyfully with spring fast approaching. He opened his front door to check the weather. He took in the fresh scent of rain that fell overnight and watched the morning dew glisten on the spring buds of the trees. The sun ray sparked warmth on his skin. As he shut the door, his senses alive inside, he took a deep breath and said, I’m thankful for another day to be alive, see my family, and serve the world. Bill ate breakfast with his kids and then headed to work.

Ron and Bill had the same responsibilities that morning. How each choose to respond differed.

Where do you take in the present moment? Where do you rush through your day?

Your choices determine your well-being. Which path will you choose?

Wishing you an abundant, joyful and prosperous day!
