I woke up at 4.30 this morning.


And no, not because I’m a morning person.

I’m not.

I’m not the hey-let’s-jump-out-of-bed-and-do-yoga-and-meditate-and-write-5-books-before-breakfast! kind of person.


I’m the leave me alone and let me sleep! kind of person.

But I’ve been waking up around 4 (and not sleeping anymore) for the past couple of days now.

So 4.30 DID feel a bit like sleeping in this morning.


It pissed me off.

I felt myself getting crankier by the second.

All I could think about was how fucking annoying it was to wake up this fucking early and not being able to sleep and with the amount of work I have to do today and on and on my mind went.


Until I told it to SHUT UP.

My mind knows I mean BUSINESS when I’m like that, and I do NOT tolerate any backtalk from it.

And it was quiet as a mouse now.

“You just shut up now!” I told it.

“This is NOT helpful! All you do is make me feel bad and I do not appreciate it! Here’s what we do instead: I now DECIDE that I woke up because I’m rested. I slept enough. If I didn’t, I’d still be asleep, am I right?”

My mind could only agree.

“OK, then! This is how it is and how it will be: I am fully rested. Today, I have more energy than ever before. I just breeze through this day with ease and joy. I get a shitload of work done while feeling like I’m on holiday all day long. THAT’S how it’s gonna be. Because I SAY SO.”


And you know what?

(And if you know anything about mindset and manifesting and how your thoughts determine how you feel, you already know what happened next.)


In a split second I shifted from feeling tired and pissed off, to well-rested and excited about all the magic this day will bring me.

It WILL be a day filled with magic.


Because I SAID so.


What kind of day do YOU decide to have?

Don’t let it just wash over you.

Decide how you feel.

Choose how it’s going to be.

KNOW that it now MUST be that way.


Because YOU SAID SO.

Have a great Wednesday!

And the picture above this blog?

Is from riding my bike through the fog early this morning.

In some places you couldn’t see more than a couple of meters ahead.

Then the sun started to shine through, slowly but surely.

And the mist cleared.

Because the sun SAID SO, I bet
