Your start determines your day.

I've noticed this to be true so often. I had a bad start to my day yesterday (woke up to the sound of an argument in the family and got into it) and things kept going wrong even till the time I hit the sack (the power went off when I was looking for my pyjamas). There are other days when I have had a good start and the day throughout has been excellent. Today the start has been calm and peaceful and the whole day so far has been the same. Some of us begin our day reluctantly, some with joy, some with vitality, some with sorrow........ you will notice how these frame of minds and feelings can remain throughout the day. Would you not agree ?

Alok This is true generally. When things start to get wrong in the beginning of the day, we make it worse by thinking about it. We are obviously angry and dissatisfied and this leads to major concentration problem. Eventually we do not do next thing on the schedule properly. One mistake begets another! And yes, I am no exception. In fact I think so much about it that I mess up even the normal things!

Yes, It happens generally and cannot be taken as a rule. The important thing is to bring our awareness to it,mentally sort it out and not let it affect the rest of things we do.

Used to be like that. Lost it along the way. Now trying hard to bring it back. Its the inspiration received from friends like you which keep the determination going.

Me too. There are days that my day start with bad things. Things will continue that way for the whole day. So irritating...even simple and small things go wrong. It's like a chain reaction. Or maybe because my mood is already ruined. That's why my perception on things go haywire. As much as possible i don't want to start my day with trouble. Because i would be like a roaring ball of fire ready to explode,when the day is over.

Trying to think positively or even the simplest of things like getting your self to smile helps. I hope you are having a good day today. Thanks
