Upon waking everyday, one should say to oneself : Thank you Lord for another day. Instead stress sets in right away. Rushing through the day. So busy with an agenda one forgets, to be true to oneself. Yes, when waking after thanking God, look in the mirror past the reflection and ask yourself. Am I being true to who and what I am? Is someone or something throwing me off? Is this my agenda or someone else's?
If the answer is yes, stop, reflect and redirect. God wants the best for us. We have to meet him half way. We have to also remember when God loves us there are no conditions. He loves us for who we are. So try making your day unconditional. Weigh the stress and strain to do and act other wise. Is it worth it? No. Psalms 25:4 Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.
