Our happiness derives mainly from our personal experience and attitude. It is not so much dependent on our external circumstances or factors.”
Do you normally accept things as they are, or would you ask “why” and “what if?”
Perhaps, for many people, trying out a new perspective coild be scary. But, if we were to stick to the known or familiar, we may never grow up and learn.
You see, the amazing thing is, when our thinking is healthy and positive, our emotions will follow. So why not, try a new way to do the same thing and see what happens? And be mindful, practice makes perfect.
If I may ask, will entertaining and acting on the negative emotion move us in the direction of our highest good? Will our negative emotions bless those closest to us? Will it help us reach our goals or accomplish our dreams?
As a matter of fact, it is certain that from time to time, we will have negative emotions triggering our lives. Consciously or unconsciously, we may do silly things that fuel our negative emotions. We may pick on the wrong things to dwell on and most likely ending up with more of what we do not want.
As I see it, our happiness derives from our own experience and attitude. It is not so much dependent on our external circumstances or factors ………. Just before I conclude my post for the day, here’s a food for thought – something we are so used to doing the opposite most of the time.
“Dwell on the things that are uplifting. Dwell on the things that are working. Dwell on the things that are worthy of praise.” ~ Philippians 4:8
