Hello Monday’s ~ More than a Feeling
Yes, I know, it’s the title of a classic song by the band Boston from the mid-1970’s. Just because I know that, it doesn’t make me old but I digress.
Sometimes in life we get swept away by our emotions: happy, sad, fear, love, anger, hate, depression, the list goes on. I think you understand what I’m saying here.
We’ve all been led by our emotions/feelings at one point or another haven’t we? I know I have, I’ll admit it. Maybe we have regrets by being “driven” by some of those emotions. Especially if we were angry and hurt someone else or even ourselves because of it. I know it’s hard but we have to forgive ourselves and move forward. IF you’ve hurt someone and you know it, be the bigger man or woman and apologize, ask them to forgive you. You’ll both feel better for it.

I don’t think any of us sit around wishing that we could spend more time feeling angry, sad, depressed or any negative feeling we can come up with. Better yet to hold on to it until we die right? So, let those feelings of (insert negative feeling here) flow away. At the end of each day; let it go. Yes, that’s easy for you to say Shelly. Well, no it’s not but it’s a choice I make each day to let the negative things go so I can start the next day NEW and with a clean slate. Besides, its exhausting carrying around all that garbage that doesn’t do anything for me!
I’m not sure who said it but it applies here “Keeping hold of anger (negative emotion/feelings) is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.” In a nutshell, holding onto negativity hurts us.
Now you’re probably thinking WOW Shelly this is too heavy, pretty much a downer post. Sort of yes but we’re not quite finished. Here’s something I’d like you to try. Tell yourself 3 things that you LOVE about yourself every night before you go to bed. Now what you might not realize is you have subconsciously started your mind focusing on the awesome, amazing, incredible, brilliance of how remarkable YOU are!
You can double your “love and encouragement” benefits by doing this for yourself each night before bed. Make it part of your night-time routine. You are so important and matter to so many people. Even people you might not realize that you matter to.
I hope you realize how much you are loved! Thank you for being a part of my life even if I don’t know you personally. I hope this blog reminds you to love yourself and those around you!
Please feel free to contact us, comment, share with your friends and family because we all need love and encouragement!
