We naturally sway between positive and negative emotions , that’s just life and we need to experience all these feelings and emotions so we can get through the negative and appreciate the feelings of happiness and joy – there is no perfect balance !
But where do we reside, what are our dominant thoughts? Are they mainly negative / pessimistic or are they more positive / optimistic?
I like positivity, it makes me feel good , it gives me hope and I like the profound impact happiness and joy has on my life….. I do get down, I do have negative thoughts and emotions but I find ways to work through these feelings and emotions to tip me to a more positive side.
This can be:
taking an action
making a phone call
switching off the news
taking a walk
spending some time alone
listening to a podcast
talking it out with family or friends
have the conversation you have been putting off – address a situation.
giving myself time to get my head around something
writing things down in a journal
appreciating what I have and been grateful for my life.
So this week my thought is to reside in the light, in the positive. Do more of what makes you happier and content.
Recognise the negative emotions. Work through challenges with calm and ease.
Have a great week , Catriona x
