Someone asked me the other day if I ever have bad days.
I have bad things that happen in days. Bad to me means things catch me off guard, make me fall on my ass, get bruised or scratched, and make me question why I even bother trying.
However, once I notice those moments happening, I consider that moment done and the next moment as a new opportunity. When something doesn’t go as planned or expected and I notice I am holding my breath (which happens every single time something goes wrong), I stop and remember to take a deep conscious breath or two.
When I remember to consciously create the next moment, it feels as if the Universe sees me and comes to me with open arms and lifts me gracefully back up into my Heart and happy place. In those moments all I can say is thank you with a smile on my face and in my Heart. I choose to not let the unexpected moments of life take too many of my breaths away.
It’s because I have the choice to define how the moment in front of me is going to affect me.
When I remember to breathe, I remember to live. When I remember to live, I radiate an incredible amount of joy and positivity because today is genuinely a great day to be alive. @intuitionheals (Click to Tweet!)
I can hear some of you thinking, “Wow it must be nice. You are so lucky.”
I am grateful that I was able to gain insight years ago to understand how to create a truly joy filled life. I feel so lucky to be here on the path with you and share my experience. Feeling joyful is about committing to and creating a new habit. Feeling joyful and grateful is about choosing to honor the moments that are difficult and truly feel what we are going through. You can change gears by taking a few deep breaths to bring you back into your center, instead of feeling victimized and defeated.
Why? Because we deserve to be happy in this wonderful experience of life that we live.
So to answer the question honestly, do I have bad days? Not really. I have bad moments.
Please consider taking a few moments right now, and think of three things you’re grateful for. This is a daily practice for me, and it’s very helpful for keeping a positive mindset. For example, today I’m grateful for this opportunity to share with you, for feeling inspired, and for being able to heal my body.
What are you grateful for today?
