It’s easy to find things in our day to day lives that we don’t like. Things that are irritating. Things that are scary, and things that bother us sometimes for reasons unknown.
It’s equally easy to get caught up in those feelings of frustration or despair when the events seem to come charging at you in droves.
But let’s just set all those aside for a moment. Yes there will be absurdities that come along. It’s okay to give them their proper consideration too. Try not to get drug along by their negativity though.
When the day gets overwhelming and the frustrations are mounting, take a breather in a quiet place and start thinking about the people in and aspects of your life you are thankful for. Remind yourself that you have a lot to be appreciative of, and that it’s really not as bad as all the drama would like you to believe.
Maybe not everything is going your way today, but on the other side of the same coin, not everything is not going your way either. You may feel like the world is against you, but if you stop focusing on the negativity and think about what you do have, what you are blessed with, you can create a greater sense of peace of mind for yourself.
And if you really aren’t seeing anything in yourself then try exercising compassion towards another. Do nice things for other people, for no reason at all. Not because you were asked to, but just out of the kindness of your heart. Your compassionate gestures will help make another person’s day better and your mood will improve right along with it.
