According to some online dictionaries, “Fabulous” (from an old French word “fabuleux”) is defined as extremely pleasing, successful, marvelous, wonderful and last but not least, almost impossible to believe or incredible. Seriously, if I could, I would love to feel vibrant, happy and peaceful all the time. Unfortunately, stuffs bothers us – big stuffs and small stuffs. And, stuff always have a way of tripping us and at times send us reeling uncontrollably.
It will then take us several bounce-ups before we feel a little better or happier. Besides, there are occasions when we felt like we were on cloud nine. Feeling confident, excited and active then feeling like down in the dumps another moment.
I reckon no one wants to feel frustrated, depressed or feeling gloomy. But, when stuffs like relationship, finance, career or even our body is not working out as planned, our emotions follow. So circumstances produce the seeds of joy, sorrow, triumph and pain, right?
You see, where we went wrong wasn’t because we let our circumstances influence our emotional well-being. But allowing them to determine our emotional well-being. Don’t you think we have lots of emotions to choose from? Unfortunately, we often look for happiness, peace and joy in the wrong places.
Wait …….. Why am I writing this?
Can we experience happiness, vibrancy, and peace of mind every day of our lives?
Or, aren’t we already living a reasonably fabulous life, right now?
Perhaps it is discovering more and strengthening our inner core. Just as the inner ear enables us to stay balanced whether we are sitting, bending over, standing and so forth. Be mindful, elephants don’t bite, mosquitoes do. There’s light at the end of the tunnel. A strong inner core will keep us stable and moving forward when stuffs – big and small, threaten to send us spiraling.
Have a fabulous August !!!
