“Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Feelin’ really good today. Been a great few days ever since I decided to just DO THIS and let go of my worries and anxieties.
Course im fully aware of my “new outlook” at all times, in the back of my mind, but this is all new to me for now!! Looking forward to when it all just comes naturally :) One day at a time…..........
I need to train my brain to decide to be happy NOW. Basically it all comes down to decisions. I forget that I am in the driver’s seat of my life and have control over how I feel. Sometimes it doesn’t feel that way but I have to remember that all my feelings manifest from thoughts and everyone has control over the things they allow themselves to think! I am deciding to be happy now, not worry about yesterday, or tomorrow…because like they say, nothing is guaranteed… and I only get ONE life, this is it….so I have to choose to make it exciting, special, and meaningful…and have fun. As morbid as it sounds, why spend my life WORRYING about things that may or may not happen, when life is temporary. This is it…. it’s not a dress rehearsal, it’s my life! I promise myself not to spend it being MISERABLE and anxious, worrisome, or expectant anymore. And the things that I DO expect, will be good things. But i’ll try just to focus on today, because today – this moment – is all I can say I have for sure!
“For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.”
“This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.”
