I think we all are very aware of that endless voice in our head telling us how we actually should be acting 24/7. It telling us to remember to think, not just react immediately, when we’re annoyed. I feel as though that inner voice that may seem like a movie director at times, screaming at us: “I need more passion from you, more optimism for life! Remember, you’re a star darling, a star! Go to your happy place”. We all know when we may be over reacting and accidentally adding extra drama to a kind hearted film, that doesn’t require you to portray an overly somber person, but rather a light heated soul.
Sometimes I think we all need to summon our inner actor and turn that frown upside down. I’m not saying that we should sweep our emotions under the rug and clean them up later, if they are actual problems. Rather, I am saying that when something doesn’t go our way it isn’t the end of the world. When that souffle you make flops and turns inward rather than giving you that beautiful dome, bake another one; when you can’t see your favorite person in the entire world that day, plan another day to see them; when your dog dies get a new one!! 😀 (just kidding, that is actual a real problem you can get upset about); and if you feel you don’t look so hot today, remember there is always someone who looks worse than you out there ;).
When ever you want to explode about that tiny spot of your make up that just isn’t right, just summon your inner jungle cat, “you’re a tiger baby, a tiger ;P”. I just would like to point out that we usually wallow in every little measly thing for to long. We really should just shut up and stop stressing about the little stuff. I may have said this in a previous post, but I’m going to stay it again. We’re all lucky to have a life on this earth, it’s not like you’re dying right now. I know we all can not handle the moods we get. The feelings we have are usually just like a knee jerk reaction. Though that shouldn’t keep us from living our lives to the happiest extent we can.
If someone were to ask you right now if you could choose between these two options, which one would you choose?: live 100 hundred days constantly upset and then die, or live 30 of the happiest days of your life and then die?
If you’re like me and chose the latter of the two, then I have something to point out…. if you didn’t want to be upset for 100 days and then die, why would you choose to live the life you have now that way? It’s defeating the purpose of choosing the second choice, because you can’t help but follow the path of the first one accidentally.
I’m not going to say it is easy to not be bothered by the little things, but it sure makes a lot more sense to them them breeze on by. Today I was not a very good example when it came to pushing the small things aside. I wasted part of my day sulking about a small little thing. Instead of moving on and doing something to put me in a positive more productive state of mind. I actually did attempt to switch my emotions by reminding myself “you’re alive for goodness sake, what else do you want?!?”. It worked, and I was happy again. Then my mood got triggered by someone getting overly angry with me and I almost lost it. I didn’t end up loosing it too bad though, and eventually that mood faded. I can honestly tell you though, that the worst parts of my day resulted in me getting all worked up about minor problems.
So I bid you all adieu! I hope you all have a wonderful night, and start your day with a smile! ;D
