Things are a-changin’ for me once again. I just arrived in Ohio from Florida to spend the summer. The moment I walked into my home, it hit me like a lead balloon … I’m still stuck in my story!
I started this blog over a year ago to help me heal these crazy feelings that keep creeping into my psyche. I thought they were all gone. Oops, that’s not the case. What am I doing to get out of this illusory mode?
Yesterday I spent the day at the library scouring through all of my favorite self-help books and realized that I’m not alone. The aisle was busy with others selecting just the right book to wedge them somewhere between authors from A to Z to get them from point A to B – somewhere different than where they were at the present moment.
I found a fabulous book called :60 Second Blues Busters by Joyce Quick and Lexie Pfetzing. It’s been great to get me out of my funk. Here’s one tip I used:
Before I get out of bed in the morning and throughout the day, I relax by breathing deeply in and out several times. I then tell myself how I intend to feel and behave today. I say out loud “Today I intend … Today I feel … Today, I remember … Today I am …” finishing the sentences on a positive note. I repeat this several times a day oftentimes quietly to myself.
Do I fail to believe what I say? As Sarah Palin says, “you betcha”! This doesn’t keep me from practicing this technique over and over again as practice makes perfect!
I send you my blessings and wishes for a prosperous and abundant life!
