Be emotional. Emotions cannot harm you. It is the actions you take while in the midst of their storm that takes you higher, or lower in your life experience. HMLD *~*
Celebrate even the smallest light
Being a very passionate, emotional individual…I’m also aware emotions are endorphin’s, hormones/chemicals in the body being released due to triggers. I’m OK with knowing this even as I may be weeping uncontrollably, or laughing boisterously.
Emotions are a part of the living experience (save for psychopaths, sociopaths). Embrace your emotions, or shelve them for later. However, do delve into them. Choose which you will grow, which you will let go.
Choosing makes all the difference between depression like living, and the brilliance of unrestrained joyful living.
May the sparkle(s) be with you, even in the darkest of times.
You are the only person in control of your life, your happiness, your sadness.
Most of the time, even in deep despair, we have LIFE within us. That LIFE, that wee bit of LIFE is the spark(le)..it is where your happiness lies. When you look into the abyss and the abyss lights up with life, go there & celebrate that life.
Comparing our insides to the outsides of others…to the expectations of others…a dangerous game. Raising our expectations beyond human possibilities…dangerous game too.
Determine on your own. One little ember of light at a time.
Yesterday was an emotionally funkified-crud-filled-no-fun-frowning kind of day for me. Looking for smiles I came across some pretty funny stuff on Facebook. Found lots of inspiring content. On LinkedIn.com, I found posts that encourage growth in all sectors of business. Twitter had some great stuff too.
What finally pulled me out of my funk? Why did I end my day yesterday & wake up happily doing a ‘happy-dance’? Gave me the strength to toss off that crud? Someone very special to my heart gave me a hug.
Yesterday’s post was about hugs. Sometimes, when we speak, we’re telling ourselves what we need to hear. Love shared through thought, actions or a kind word can truly help someone find the strength to smile again. Hugs are magic like that too.
Are you sharing love today? Through a smile? A hug? A kind word?
Tell us what you’re doing to brighten someone’s day or how someone inspired you to smile & dance again.
