Imagine waking up with an extra kick in your step. Oh, how to start the day off right. Change your morning, change your day!
Now you might be thinking that’s impossible. I’ve tried it, and it doesn’t work. At least not for me.

If you think it’s not going to work for you, it’s not! So you might as well stop listening now and go on to something else.
However, if you want to change your day, let’s talk about your morning. How to start the day off right.
Do you know how many different ways there are to wake up in the morning? Even wikipedia has an opinion. And of course, everything on the internet works. LOL 🙂
Well let’s remind ourselves what the morning looks like now.
- Snooze 3x, now you’re rushed with no time to breathe.
- You have nothing to wear.
- The children are crabby. There’s split milk that you don’t have time to clean up like you really want to.
- You can’t find your keys.
- You drop the children off for school and you notice you don’t have your cell phone.
- Back to the house you go.
- Now you are later than you really hoped you’d be, even though you hit snooze 3x at the beginning.
- Traffic is crazy. What excuse can you come up with this time?
Sounds too familiar. This might be “the every other day” routine.
At least you know how you shouldn’t start off your day.
So let’s look at how to start the day off right.
First, you must go to bed in order to rise early and be well-rested.
This is not for lazy people. Don’t expect to change your life without a little work. What you put in, you will get out.
Assume you have received a good night’s rest. Your alarm rings, and your day begins.
Time to think on purpose!
The K.I.S.S. ~ T.H.I.N.K. on purpose!
Your mindset will change the trajectory of your day. Think on purpose. Don’t let the world dictate your reactions.
- Presence: Rise up early and be filled with gratitude.
- Reverence: Admire God and appreciate His grace and mercy.
- Be Decisive: Decide in the morning how you will respond throughout your day. Put on the armor of God. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
- Prayer: Pray over your temptations. Know your weaknesses, ask for strength.

T – is it TRUE?
H – is it HELPFUL?
I – is it INSPIRING?
N – is it NECESSARY?
K – is it KIND?
“For the Lord will be your confidence, and will keep your foot from being caught.” ~ Proverbs 3:26
Start out your day right by leaning into what God is blessing you with. By what God is challenging you with. By what God is stretching you with. By how God desires to cling to you, so cling to Him.
Start your day off right by giving of yourself.
“Change your morning, change your day! T.H.I.N.K. on purpose!”
