Imagine it’s early morning and you’ve just woken up. After expressing gratitude for the gift of another day, you mentally review today’s agenda. But you can’t seem to get moving. What you need is a motivational tool to help plant your feet on the floor.
I’d like to suggest a song that will make you cast aside your spread and spring you out of bed. “Mornin’ ” by Grammy-winning vocalist Al Jarreau, is sure to get you pumped and primed for this remarkable day.
“Mornin' Mr. Radio
Mornin' little Cheerios
Mornin' sister Oriole
Did I tell you everything is fine
In my mind?”
Greet the day with enthusiasm! You’re reminded that a positive outlook can bring positive results.
“ 'Scuse me if I sing
My heart has found its wings”
Raise your vibration. Belting out uplifting lyrics first thing in the morning reinforces your affirmative stance and helps you focus on success.
“My heart will soar
With love that's rare and real
My smiling face will feel every cloud…”
“I know I can
Like any man
Reach out my hand
And touch the face of God”
With love in your heart, acknowledge the presence of Spirit around you and within you. You can lay the groundwork for an elevated experience today.
I challenge you to keep your feet curled up under your sheet after listening to the instrumental opening of this song. There you go — you’re up now — can’t help but dance and sing — louder — crank up the volume! Okay, I know it’s going to be hard not to hit the replay button over and over. But remember, “Mornin’ “ is your motivator, not your distractor.
Reflect on what just happened. You’ve blessed your day. You sang at the top of your lungs. (By the way, singing increases your lung capacity; there’s breathwork and physical fitness in singing.) And you danced, which means you got a little cardio in your morning get-up. Now you’re ready to tackle your tasks.
Good morning! Jumpstart your day with an exhilarating get-up-and-go song!
