Change it up & find your happy place
Change happens around us constantly, we even change unconsciously over time. I strive to make changes consciously and make myself aware of what is going on in my psyche. I can change my thoughts and feelings, even if it seems automatic. My feelings use to be because someone did, said, thought something. A different understanding is to realize if we let people get to us, we give away our power, and that's why we are unhappy. Their actions(or words) + thoughts (or judgements) = feelings(emotion). I use to think it was all tied together, if someone does something I don't like, I automatically think it's wrong or whatever judgment, and I feel negative emotion. It may not feel like a choice sometimes when the kids don't listen or someone doesn't realize how cool I am. LOL Changing your thinking to what feels better will make you FEEL better, you are in charge of that part. If I look for ways to be offended or mad, I can find them. If I look for things to make me happy or grateful for, I can find them. Change your perspective, take a breath, and find your happy. Hoping all of you find their happy place!
