The other day I was in one of those crazy funks. You know, when everything is annoying. I was so annoyed, I was annoyed at myself. I worked out, lit a candle and tried various other methods to shift myself into a more enjoyable mood, but it persisted. Finally, I stopped and sat outside trying to do a breathing exercise. I was so grateful for the breeze blowing on my skin. Then I shifted my mind into other things I could be grateful for in this moment, if I allowed myself. The shift was dramatic. My new philosophy is:
“You can’t be in a funk and be in gratitude at the same moment!”
Seriously, try it. While I might sustain sadness or anger if there is a reason for it, the general funky dissatisfaction of life cannot coexist with gratitude.
November is a great month to develop a habit if gratitude, thankfulness, and rejoicing!!
