So much has been occurring on so many levels for so long….don’t you agree?
I have noticed that when something has affected us, no matter what it is, that we very often ‘hold on’ to the accompanying feelings we had at that time, and that we sometimes ‘replay’ them over and over.
This is not good.
It is okay to remember. It is wonderful to feel. It is great to have been through…and to have survived…and thrived!
But, it does no good to anybody to just replay situations and emotions that bring us down over and over.
So, I suggest a new way of doing things.
When something crops up that has been bothering you, past, present,(or even future worries), then…sit…take a deep breath in…..through your nose…and then let it all out with a whoosh….and release it! Consciously release all that you feel is holding you back from enjoying each and every possible moment of your life now!
Try it again….breathe in through your nose…..and….out…..through your mouth….loudly! Let it all go!
Do this as often as you need. I know it helps.
I personally have had a few things go ‘wrong’, and I just simply had to work my way through them….one step at a time…and trying to remember to breathe through it all….Ha Ha! Once I achieved my end result….I was literally thrilled that I had gotten to the end….and I had ‘made it!’ It DOES feel good!
You have nothing to lose by trying this simple act, and everything to gain….peace within is a wonderful thing…and it makes me happy.
I do not need to be extremely wealthy in order to smile or to be happy. I do the things that bring me joy. I make time for myself. (VERY Important!) I sing (Badly, in the shower, but I DO sing!) I dance when the mood takes me. I hug….a LOT! I REALLY appreciate my friends. I LOVE unconditionally my family….(works better than maybe fighting with them or having different points of view….they need to find their own way). AND….I smile when I look in the mirror! After all….if I don’t love ME….who will? I have found that in order to be happy, I do need to love myself, and I have found that this then RADIATES out from me…and others only get this vibe….and it is good.
I wish for every single one of you that your happiness be so BIG…that it glows all around you! That you are grateful….that you can give when you can with a full heart….and that you can receive with so much gratefulness that it shines from you.
You DO need to learn to receive, especially if you are a ‘giver’ even to the point of sacrificing…which does NOT feel good….and when you receive something, smile and be grateful…because if you ONLY give…then you ROB the other person of the gift of giving! Think about it from their point of view. Balance is all. Happiness is the result.
I may not have everything, but what I DO have is amazing. My life is fabulous, and I expect it to be great.
EVERYTHING WORKS OUT WELL FOR ME.
This is my favourite saying. Try it for yourself. And….remember to breathe…
Have a really wonderful day!
Blessings to you, hugs, Barbara xoxoxo
