“The most important decision you make
is to be in a good mood.”
Good Mood Struggles
This quote caught my fancy today because I have been struggling to BE in a good mood.
It’s usually something that needs to be fixed physically such as food, more water or more sleep. And of course less sugar! I am just way too fond of sugar.
If I don’t take care of myself physically than all the “positive thinking, imagining and other positive mental tricks” do not seem to make much of an impression.
Not a bit.
But once I take inventory of where my good mood indicators need to be adjusted than I can work on the heart fix.
The Heart Fix
Things like reading a good book, listening to something inspirational or motivational or playing a puzzle or game are helpful.
Lot’s of times it’s something very simple. Taking a walk. Talking to a friend. Relaxing.
The thing is, I think that good moods are usually the result of things that happen within. Working on a new project is a great up lifter in the beginning but then the day by day commitment of making it happen can become pressure building.
In those cases for me that is when I need to think small.
Small steps every day are manageable.
Small steps are better than big steps once a week.
I learned that the most solidly from my piano teacher. She would much rather I practiced 15 minutes every single day than one or two hours before class.
Day by day growth builds stronger and more reliable change.
Like a plant that needs a quiet rain and not a flood.
Today’s Three Sunshine (Gratitude) Moments:
1. Went with Jon to help his son and wife put in a new double door. They did it! Seemed like way too big a project to do but guess that’s because I’m not much of a carpenter.
2. Another day of sunshine. Very cold wind though.
3. Time to go read my book.
