I’d love to invite you into my New York City apartment.
Then I’d love to immediately show you the exit door and escort you to leave.
You might be thinking, “So, is that the kind of hospitality New Yorkers show?”
The answer: Nope. I just want to show you a photo of the back of my exit door, because I want you to see what I see when I leave my apartment to take my son to daycare.
Every morning as I exit my apartment, I am greeted by a poster with the words: “Something awesome is going to happen today. I can’t wait to see what it will be.”
I personally love having this daily reminder in my face to inspire me to keep my eyes open for all kinds of awesomeness, to be what I call “an awesome seeker.”
After I put up this poster/wall decal on the exit side of my front door, I soon began a daily practice with my son. Now, when I drop him off at daycare, I give him a big hug and then whisper in his ear, “Something awesome is going to happen to you today at daycare! Look for awesome things to happen, then I want you to tell me all about this awesome stuff when I pick you up at the end of the day.”
Later, when I pick him up, I greet him with the question: “So, what awesome things happened to you today?”
He then recounts to me all the best parts of his day.
I love that I’m helping my son tune into the frequency of awesome and perk up and appreciate what’s happy in his day!
How about you? Are you an awesome seeker? Do you pay mindful attention to all that’s going right—and even fantabulous—in your day? If not, decide now to become an “awesome seeker.”
Live out your day consciously choosing to look for good things. Then spend your evening in appreciation.
