What Will It Take to Wake You Up?
Positive emotions are required for your body to function at its peak performance.
Being stoic or tolerating being in a negative state of mind often is unhealthy.
The scientific evidence of this is clear.
We need to care for our bodies and part of caring for our bodies, even more important to their health than whether or not we smoke, is that we enjoy positive emotions often.
Are you still harboring resentment towards a long ago wrong?
“Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one getting burned.” – Buddha
Are you holding on to feelings of not being loved enough at some point in your life? That part of your life is over and only your thoughts about it are keeping it alive.
Are you refusing to forgive, believing that they do not deserve your forgiveness? The one you benefit by your forgiveness is you.
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” – Lewis B. Smedes
Are you loving yourself? The often quoted verse is “Love thy neighbor as thyself” but many people treat themselves worse than they would their worst enemy in the conversations they have in their own minds and in the mirror. Remember to love yourself. You really cannot love others if you do not love and accept yourself.
You do not have to judge yourself as lacking to decide to improve or change something about yourself. It is perfectly acceptable to be fine as you are and decide to improve something to make yourself even better. Self acceptance means you recognize that you are evolving and becoming throughout life. If you are not all that you desire to be today there is always tomorrow when you will be more than you are today.
Do you spend your commute time angry at the situation? You can make it enjoyable with a little thought and effort.
Do you go to a job you hate every day? There has to be some aspect you can focus upon that will feel better to you.
