Sometimes upsetting things happen. That’s the way things are and we can’t avoid them. We can however make things better.
The other day I had a confrontation with a person who was quite nasty to me. I was extremely upset afterwards and sat staring into space, totally focused on the incident. I couldn’t concentrate on anything else.
After a while my phone alarm went off. The ringer is an upbeat song. I decided to stand up and dance, shaking out the negativity that my body was holding from the incident through my fingertips. At the end of the song, I felt a lot better and I also realised that I was thankful that this is my problem rather than anything else. In fact I felt blessed.
This thought process completely turned my mood around and I was able to get on with my day.
If it wasn’t for the song breaking into my reverie and choosing to dance it out, I may have dwelled on my problem for the whole day. By shaking it out, I changed my mood.
I hope that you find a way to feed the birds when you get crumbs.
