Sorry it has taken me a couple of days to reply to your comments. This week has been a bit manic so I hope you will forgive and bear with me. In line with the busy week there has been trickles of bad news and spots of good news but for some reason the bad news seems to stick. Why is it when we hear something bad or are told some not so pleasant news, (even if we get brilliant news on the same day), it is the bad news that we will turn over and over in our heads? Hmmm. Strange thing is I am not a pessimist or glass is half empty person so when I am plagued by negative thoughts and overwhelmingly negative emotions, I have to take step back.
You see I am a dreamer, a romantic, a love poet. Everything about life has to sing, radiate and glow. I hate dull environments, people and circumstances. That is not to say that I do not encounter dull environments, people or circumstances – no! Instead I choose to look at things in ways that accentuate the beauty. Let’s face it, life is depressing enough without our minds magnifying the horrific nature of people and politics. Our mind is the only thing we have complete control over and once we learn to master that, a significant part of the living battle is already won.
In short: keep your eye on the prize and do not allow yourself to be demoralized (ooo that rhymes). Often one situation or thing going wrong, yes may change our life forever but there is always another way to make things work. It might take some re – grouping and going back to the drawing board but you can do it.
