When I woke up this morning at 5:00 a.m. I felt frustrated and out of sorts. I started talking myself into how great it was to be awake so early, the birds were singing and I closed the window to shut the noise out. I began to think about all of the things that I could do and as I tried to be in a happy frame of mind I began to sink into a depression and frustration. It seemed that the harder I tried to make it a happy day, to worse it got. I got out of bed at 5:30 and got involved doing things that I enjoy doing, took Sparky outside, listened to the birds singing, caught some rays of sunshine and began to be happy in the moment…..
Wow, what a difference!
I will stay focused in the moment, I will feel what I feel in each moment and move forward knowing that I do not need to strive to be happy, however, I will enjoy the happiness I feel when it is real, coming from inside of me, here and now!
