Week 5, Day 1: EXCITE YOUR LIFE!!!

It’s time to pump it up. We have spent a month working on letting go, forgetting our past and our burdens, and blah blah blah…and now it’s time to start living! So what have I done on my day 1? I woke up this morning (I’ve finally gotten 9 hours of sleep WITHOUT any sleep aid), took a long hot shower, rejuvenated my face with a facial (Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Facial Mask, $4, Walmart), danced to Michael Jackson (“Thriller”), and started my morning with writing and a devotional. Ahhh, I even ate oatmeal this morning and that’s new because since the beginning of this semester I’ve either skipped breakfast, ate a croissant from our campus coffee shop, or ate some sort of junk food. The point is… I think one of the most important things we can work on this week is establishing a solid morning routine. It’s been proven that “highly productive” people have a set routine each morning. Now what works for me may not work for you. But find what works this week, use it, and let’s get pumped.

My New Morning Routine

-Wake Up

-Shower/Brush Teeth/Wash Face/Get Dressed


-Daily Devotional & Writing (I am currently reading Joyce Meyer’s “The Confident Woman Devotional”, Rick Warren’s “The Purpose Driven Life”, and Meera Lee Patel’s “Start Where You Are: A Journal for Self-Exploration”.)

Once again…what may work for me MAY NOT work for you. But find your routine and as I’ve been saying lately …you gotta make sum shake. πŸ™‚

I’ve “excited my life” this morning by also searching some fun things I’d like to this summer when I’m in St. Louis for my internship. Join me friends…summer is coming and I don’t know about you but Dia is coming…and I’m gon make sum shake. πŸ™‚
