Mindful Monday: Start Your Day

The weekend went by with the blink of an eye, they always seem to, especially when I have to drive back and forth from Tucson to Phoenix. But I really do love blogging on Mondays because it's this post that sets the tone for my week. So here goes nothing...

As I was getting ready this morning I realized something while listening to "Brighter than the Sun" by Colbie Caillat. As soon as I hear the first few beats, I am instantly filled with joy. I don't know if it's the song itself, or the reminder of a video made for the Fiesta Bowl coronation event, but regardless, it puts me in the BEST mood.

So what will I mindful of this week?!

I now understand that I have the potential to start my day in whatever manner I want to. Unless I am instantly woken up by something unfortunate, I can choose how my morning will begin from the second I open my eyes. For me, when my day starts off calm and collected, I am pretty likely to hold onto that feeling for some time during the day. SO WHY NOT START MY DAYS LIKE THIS EVERYDAY?!

I'm about to download "Brighter than the Sun" so I have the potential do so. I may as well financially support the artist who unknowingly causes me so much happiness, right? :)

What song makes you happy, no matter the circumstance? I'd love to add it to the "Joy" playlist that I'm about to create.



  1. This is so sweet! This might sound funny, but I love the philadelphia cream cheese commercial song! It puts a smile on my face ever time I hear it :) {new follower, btw!}

  2. Uhm, yeah, the weekend FLEW! Happy Happy Monday!

  3. The weekends definitely fly by! Hope you've had a great week!
