Goodbye to the Blues – Hello Gratitude!
Once in a while it might feel good or like a bit of relief to have a good moan or a good complaining session.
But I believe I believe it’s really something that we should do and be done with it, and move on. The problem starts when one complains about one thing and that complaint lead to another issue which in turn can lead to to a whole series of complaints – of seeing the downside, the dark side, the negative side, the draining side of an incident.
What we complain about frequently we can often bring about. Conversely when we we speak positively about, or look for the light in a situation this often can bring about more of that same good or better.
Our words are like magic. They are like magical magnets that attract to us what we put out.
So perhaps the best approach is the way of gratitude. What can we be grateful for in this situation? How has the situation brought light or knowledge into our lives? Gratitude brings more good things to be grateful for because it makes us feel good. That’s perhaps, what we all want anyway. It takes just as much energy to look for things to be grateful for as to look for things to complain about.
So whatever our situation, let’s try to find at least three things every day that we can be thankful for. Maybe write it in a notebook, or keep a record on your phone via an app. Then at the end of the week you can have a little review of your journal entries.
You can do it it. Why not give it a try!
