Haven’t you been in that spot several times before: You are there sitting, just thinking and wondering. And it seems that all that flow through your mind are those negative feelings. Why is he/she like that? Can’t things just be better? Didn’t he/she see the stop sign? He/She got it soooo good and can’t even appreciate it!!
Yea is the negative thoughts moment. That can transform in more than a moment to “The negative thought hour or Day”. Is just when you suddenly start to feel and see all that is wrong. In everyone and everything. Is when you just wonder what would have happened about 5 – 10 – 20 – 30 or more years ago, if you had taken a different road, made a major different decision or just answered “NO”. It happens to everyone, all the time and it sucks!!
It’s kind of a mood swing, it’s just something that happens. If you haven’t experienced it, maybe you won’t be reading this, because you may have never really been alive. It’s part of life, it’s part of being alive! And is what you make of it that will allow you to survive it, surpass it, leave it behind and see the better things in life.
Oh, this part is not easy either. Just start thinking positive, yes that’s the key, but finding that key is not easily achieved. You can immerse easily in the negativity and just allow it to follow you forever, which is very bad. Or you can fight it and try to get out of the funk. I hope you do the latter! I do!
In most cases the good outweigh the bad, we are just not in the proper mind, time and space to see it, to feel it. That is where the effort must start. Sit, relax, think: “Am I happy?!” “Do I have the things I need to be happy?!” “Can I get the things I need to be happy?!”
The overall answer to these questions should be “YES”. Of course you could be grumpy one moment, hour, morning or day… but are you grumpy everyday, every week of every month… most likely not! Does he/she makes you feel more times happy than sad? Does that/it fulfill you more times than not? Would you rather be with/without that person/thing?
Depending on how long/deep in the funk you are, the harder you will have to think and answer these questions. But hopefully you don’t have to think too hard to realize that you got it good and that besides everything you are happy.
Now grab your drink of choice and cheer hard for being happy and living your life.
