Dealing With Feeling
With today’s media driven world it’s very easy to get bogged down in the negativity. So let me share how to keep your spirits up.
First. Breathe. All too often we get caught up in the insanity of society and forget this simple habit. So if you are reading this do me a favor. Stop and take a few good deep breaths……feel better? I know I do.
Second. Forgive. The world, more importantly the ones who occupy it. As this is necessary for us to live in place we can’t control. Let me clarify I don’t mean forget justify or sympathize I mean truly forgive as the ones who don’t “deserve” it need it the most.
Third. Feel. Yeah I know this part can really hurt as our hearts can be filled with grief and despair. But these feelings must be allowed to flow or they become like cancer. So let yourself cry or scream, say a few curse words whatever it is that you feel will help express these emotions. Just remember to not make other people your emotional punching bag as this burden upon them is no less damaging than it is for you to hold it in.
Not sure how to express emotion anymore? That’s ok too we as a society have been programmed and drugged to not feel so seek out someone you know who can help there is always another who would love to, myself included.
Fourth. Find beauty. As it does not disappear in the face of sorrow it only shows itself in new ways. I don’t mean obsess over another-persons physical appearance or some new cool toy but find something that genuinely makes you smile and watch it for a brief spell.
Fifth. Live. Today is no better day to waste because of the events of yesterday or the uncertainty of tomorrow. So call someone you love or write a letter to a friend. Try something new that you have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to try as that opportunity is now. Got some chores you have been putting off? Embrace them as they will bring you peace just through the process of taking action in your life.
Let me wrap this all up with one simple request of you all. Today we need love more than ever so do me a favor share that love with another give a hug or a kiss or even a simple smile.
Above all else know that I LOVE YOU.
