I’ve been on a quest to learn to be happy. It’s been made easier with the coming of Spring, and then Summer, because of the sunshine. I’ve noticed sunshine is the most major thing that brings me joy.
I’ve been almost daily emerged in the re-wiring of my brain and soul by embracing those things that make me happy and then doing them, and also with power tapping (which I think has to do with the new way to look at issues that it brings), positive affirmations and prayers.
Also, I’m learning the reality of the principle of sowing and reaping that Jesus and the Bible taught (known also as karma, or a bit like kismit – it’s a universal rule of creation) brings clarity to my daily life and the areas in which I’d want to emphasize. That is, I WILL get back what I give out, as sure as the crops rise in Spring, the Sun leaves every evening to bring in the night, and my next breath. Practicing this and keeping it in my remembrance helps me see the importance of generosity, charity, forgiveness (which is actually just when done properly, not unjust as the World teaches it should be done), and striving for my and others’ happiness as the key to receiving blessings. The lessons of sowing and reaping actually keep my feet feeling more firmly on the ground and gives me a solid direction.
I’ve had days of real sadness, which often were brought on by exhaustion from physically pushing myself too hard with my CFS/Fibromyalgia. When that happens my body breaks down and, therefore, I also have difficulty with emotional stabilization. I become weepy and notice all the ‘negatives’ in my life, but when I’m stronger I can overcome them more easily by either tackling them in small chunks or by determining that other issues aren’t worth the energy worrying about.
But the bad days don’t become overwhelming and I know at the time that they’re just temporary. I used to think at those times that I was having a bad life, now I see them more and more as just having bad days.
I’m learning so much through the ups and downs of the last few months and there are a few topics I’d like to explore further here in future posts. My aim is for the default of my days to be happy ones, and the sad/dark/scary ones be the abnormal and occasional, and then those even fading lighter and lighter in disturbance.
I wish for all who read this a wonderful day and tomorrow, and may good things happen for you.
