A Mindful Morning

Good Morning from Oahu, HI



“The morning is good because we remember that no matter what went wrong the previous days, we just got a perfect opportunity to rewrite history and do better.”– Anonymous

Full many a glorious morning have I seen

Flatter the mountain tops with sovereign eye,

Kissing with golden face the meadows green,

Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy

– Sonnet 33 by William Shakespeake

The beautiful chirping of the birds singing harmoniously for usher in a new day, creating melodies letting us know that it’s a new beginning. How you start your day, start your morning, will have a major impact on how the rest of your day will go. With the beginning of dawn, come the golden sun, kissing the horizon with its smiling, warmth, and letting the world know that it’s time to let go of the misery and failure of yesterday as the memory of the past, the history, and start a new beginning with glimmer of hope and new dreams kissing your face with love.

Morning, marks the end of the shadow of darkness of yesterday and beginning of the new day, when the glistening sun spreads it glow to cover the darkness of the night and peeps through the windows, and through curtains to awaken us as we lie in bed, so dazzling, so beautiful that it arouses a sense of new beginning in us. Whichever way to decide to start your day, just remember, it’s a new beginning, a fresh start. Don’t dwell on the darkness of yesterday as “yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, and today is a gift, that’s why it’s called a present”.

Enjoying a beautiful dawn and a morning cup of Joe in Oahu, HI

As the CTO of Twitpic, Steve Corona, said, “If you study successful people, one thing that you’ll notice really quickly is that they share a bunch of similar habits — and the daily ritual is one of them…And being busy isn’t an excuse. In fact, the busier that you get, the more you need it”. So make it your morning ritual with the sense of new beginning. Start your day with pause. Whether enjoying a morning cup of Joe or catching up on the headlines, take your time to pause. Take a deep breath. Be mindful. Be intentional.

Start the morning, with a few moments of quiet time to yourself instead of rushing out the door. As mentioned by psychologist Nicole Martinez, Psy.D. , LCPC “One of the best ways to start a morning routine is to start out slowly with one where you add little windows of time, and small tasks.” Take this time to take a deep breath and let the pearly golden ray of the sun tenderly kiss your face and spread its warmth like a blanket, so surreal. Bask yourself in the glow of the morning sun, a gentle supernova, just silent and light.

If you like going for a walk and/or run in the morning, let the morning feel your heart and slow as you walk and/or run. Let the music in your ear ground you, and take in the brisk air, and the shining sun playing hid and seek behinds, trees, and building. During this time, be ready to listen, to the mischievous sun, or the chirping birds calling on your take in your surroundings, let the glittering sun shimmering in the morning sky, and sparkling in the horizon. Taken the soft glow of the morning dew, the golden glow of the sun over the flower beds, captivated by the beauty and radiance.

Start your day with gratitude towards yourselves and other. Remember, we are just mare audience of the beautiful world and it is up to us to spread that beauty through our works and attitude. Start your day with gratitude for being able to enjoy the dewy morning. Remember, the morning dew, the flowers, the beautiful sky, don’t fight for the shimmer and glow of the golden sun. They do not seek anyone’s approval or judgement for their beautiful colors. As Shakespeare said in Romeo and Juliet, “That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”. A rose does not seek the approval or judgement by any human to spread its sweet fragrance. It will continue to spread its beauty, its healing properties and radiant glow, even when there is no human there to appreciate it.

The world is constantly speaking, God is constantly speaking to us through what we see, and we just have to take the time to listen with our eyes. As you start the morning, listen and observe your surroundings. It up to us to decide what we absorb. I chose to listen what is being said each morning, with my senses and my soul and start each day with a sense of new beginning, full of home and radiance. I want to start each day with a sense of gratitude, basking the glow and warmth of the beautiful sun, listening to the harmonious call of the singing birds mischievously playing with their melodies, absorbing the sweet fragrance spread by the glowing flowers, breathing in the crisp fresh air saturated with prayers and dreams. This is what life is all about. I chose gratitude. I chose to appreciate what’s around me like I am the only person in the world. I chose new morning. Good Morning.
