Experience a more pleasant life with awareness of feelings unfolding with each experience during your day!
Emotions can become guides to a happier life …. when we are able to recognize the message. For example, I can wake up and enjoy the feeling of my pillow or warmth of my surroundings. I can choose to linger a bit and be grateful. I like to think of it as moseying into the new day! I start my day by creating it. What makes me feel better at this particular moment?
I am aware I can create the world around me. So I take time in the morning to see myself happy to work on my life choices. I know I can be anything, do anything, have anything. I am open to this belief. I choose calmer, more confident thoughts …whatever will comfort and inspire me at the moment.
How you think about things can turn the situation around.
Let go of thoughts that hold you uncomfortable with yourself. Take time to become conscious of feelings that make you feel guilty, unwell, ashamed.
Take time to become conscious of feelings that make you feel joyful, hopeful, creative, helpful, confident.
The more you become conscious of these contrasting emotions, the faster you can choose thoughts to encourage the feelings you wish to have.
In a bit I will play for you the great Oliver Hunt rendition of this beautiful book. There has been lovely snow outside my door since Sunday and we are expecting more tomorrow. It is a dreamy type of existence I am living in right now.
I love this picture of William Pardon Tankerfield the Third. Yes, I drew this picture, but what surprises me is who is looking back at me. I see the eyes of my husband, my son, the eyes of my grandsons, my daughter-in-law, my brothers and sister, and friends. I am beginning to understand that the person who I am now aware of is myself. It surprises, delights and surprises me again.
Here’s what I see: Fun. A little bit of mischief, but loving mischief. Delight to be here. Confidence that all is well. Mainly love. All you need is love.
The book was written as a way to think about and teach my then-10-year-old son about believing in dreams. I wanted him to know he has everything at his disposal to live the kind of life he wishes for. All you need is love.
As I said, I am in a dreamy sort of life today. Touching the magical ideas of happiness. I am grateful. I am love.
So here’s my promise: presenting Oliver Hunt @oliverthereader
