****Go to the *** below for a description of the Miracle Morning Routine.
Even when you are trying to have a miracle morning, some days just suck!
One of the hallmarks of a good miracle morning is that it gets you ready to have a good and productive day. After all, once you have gone through the SAVERS steps, you should be ready to face your day and win.
Today my miracle morning started off well. I had my time of Silence. I used that time for reading my Bible. During the affirmation phase, I read my affirmations for creating confidence. During my visualization phase, I saw myself successfully launching a new creating confidence 7-day challenge. Then it was time for exercise.
My exercise consists of me walking my husband to his commuter train early each morning. Today it sucked outside. I walked outside to a sky was cloudy and overcast. The rain was that misty rain that that ignores your umbrella’s protection. Rain traveled on the wind and wet all my clothes. The day just sucked.

However, I still had to get home to do the scribing part of my miracle morning aka this blog article. As I walked in the door, I wanted to drag myself upstairs and go to bed. But, alas, I had to start the day so to the desk in my office area I went. As I sat at my desk to type, I looked out of the window at the clouds and the rain. I forced myself back to the keyboard and continued my day.
Routine can save you from days that suck!
That is the lesson I would like to share today. Sometimes the day sucks. There is no fancy way to put it and no cute words to cover It up. There are some days that offer no inspiration. On those days it is even more important to stick to your routine. A routine gives you something to do. It makes life consistent.
Some may think that consistency is boring and no one wants to be boring. On the contrary, consistency can make excitement possible. When you don’t feel like doing what you should, your routine and the consistency it provides helps you push through.
The next time you are in the middle of your daily routine and just don’t feel like it, lean on your routine. Allow the routine to take you from a sucky day to a productive day. You create routines, schedules, and plans for a reason. When the day is bad and you cannot find the motivation to do what you should, lean on your routine. It will pull you through.
*** What the Miracle Morning means in my world.***
Recently, I decided to start a Miracle Morning routine. For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, it involves getting up a little earlier in the day. The day starts with you doing SAVERS. To translate that into English, it means:
In my world, I start with spirituality – I read my Bible and pray. Next, I read or write affirmations. I do a lot of work dealing with creating confidence so I read my creating confidence affirmations or spend time creating 1 or 2 more. For visualization, I spend time picturing what will make the day successful. Exercise involves me taking a 20-minute walk around the neighborhood. After my walk, I read. I created a reading list for the mornings. This is a list of books, I want to read for pleasure, for enrichment, or because I need to read them. Finally, it is time to scribe or write. I have decided to turn the things I think about on my walks into blog articles for my scribe activity.
Stay tuned for our next installment in the Miracle Morning series.
