Everyone is capable of getting the blues; it’s what you do about it that matters. I refuse to wallow in the blues, but I do have moments of self-doubt, the “what now” response, and negativity. I had one of those days today. It was rough going, but I got myself out of the land of negativity and found my true path where I have a place of peace.
Having a positive attitude no matter what is going on is not easy. A person needs to have the ability to remember who they truly are: a spiritual being having a human experience. Today, I had a truly human experience and had to work hard to retain my usual joyful demeanor.
There wasn’t an event that made me flip from being happy and joyous to being grumpy and distressed. I just woke up moving slow, then it was too cold to eat outside and that just bummed me out. I let it affect my mood. All day long, little things that normally don’t bother me really kept me feeling down. I finally took a brief break and walked outside for 15 minutes. While I was outside I admired the birds and their music, the gorgeousness of the trees, plants and flowers and the cool breeze. This small act of walking around on my break totally reset my mood so that I was once again my radiant, positive force for good self.
Being a positive being while in human form is not for wimps; you need to have the fortitude to keep striving to be positive even when the blues try to take over. And the blues will try to take over. When it would be easier to allow the blues to take over, remember the old cliché “This too shall pass” is true.
Life is good! God is great! All is right in my world.
