Creating a new outlook and plan for happiness during the holiday season and beyond is much
easier than I could have ever thought it would be. Waking up with the mindset, that the only thing
That is important today is today. What could happen tomorrow, and what happened yesterday is not
On the agenda for being happy and in control of a peaceful life.
First on the list, wake up and learn to enjoy each day. Try eliminating all of the old problems and things that brought stress and drama into your life. I found that going back, way back, to a day when I was the most happy, worked for me. When was my last perfect day? What was I doing? Who was I with? What day of the week was it? After I discovered what I was doing the very last time, I was not stressed and was just actually completely happy in all areas, I felt like my life was new again. The new day ahead may be like the old day behind me, but it brought back to life my real happiness for a day that I will never get to live again.
This day is the only day that matters. My day.
I love this day. Tomorrow, I will apply the same thoughts to my search for happiness, and for now, right now, all is well. A beautiful beautiful day!
Keeping it real...some thing that I have been trying to do lately is that. Trying to find a way to still be myself when nothing is about me anymore. Struggles are so great for everyone and I am sure you have a long list as well. Not everyone is going to have the same challenges in life and sometimes the things that bother us the most are things that do not show up in our photo's. Invisible to others but they continue to eat at our souls until we have resolved them. So this is me , on a day that was nice. It is easy to post a photo after we have done our hair and picked out the perfect clothes, but on this day I did none of the above. I don't live near the ocean. I live on a small street in a small town in Missouri. In a small house. So my outlook is starting to change. Keeping it real. Wearing my sweatpants when I want. Brushing my hair less, maybe even cleaning less. Keeping it all together on the inside is much easier for me when I am not trying to keep it all together on the outside. I love gardening and am going to make this the best season ever, all while making a mess, lol. I read once, that one of your goals should be that when you have people over to your house, they should leave feeling better about themselves, not feeling better about you. And that totally meant why do I spend 4 hours cleaning when I know someone is coming by for 5 minutes? I must be crazy. So here I go, off to work and all the while ...keeping it so real people will be wondering all day what the heck is wrong with me :) and if your feeling the same way.... take the challenge and start just being you :)
