It’s easy to get in a bad mood just by reading your newspaper or watching the news on TV. Shootings, war, famine, job loss, and let’s face it the current administration in Washington leaves a lot to be desired.
However, not everything in your life is bad, and it’s important to meditate on what’s going right in your life. Did your kid make the honor roll, did you decide to eat a healthier diet, or take an invigorating walk in the fresh air and sunshine? If you are in a really blue funk, start small and just be thankful that you woke up this morning.
When I take the time to really think about what’s going right in my life, I usually end up with a pretty long list and it really chases the blues away when I’m feeling down.
Sit down at the end of a day, take out a sheet of paper or use a program like Microsoft Word and make a list of all the positive things in your life. I guarantee you will feel a lot better.
