This morning, I found my mind Wandering to positive thoughts about people and doing something kind for them. My mood lifted instantly and I found myself "Feeling Good For No Reason"! Oh, but there was reason, of course: I was thinking positive thoughts and thus, my mood followed.
Yes, it all seems simple to you, but some of us have to work toward that positivity, it does not come natural, especially if a parent taught us to think negatively and be critical, or modeled that behavior. I have a friend, whom I admire so much, who's natural course of Thought Flow is to focus on what feels good/what is good, in a negative situation, thereby she is able to remain happy and look for positive outcomes to anything Life throws at her. I truly envy that ability; to me, it's like Magic. For me, if I am not fully aware and Catch My Thoughts, I turn toward worry, fear, and negative thinking automatically. I've had to work hard to train my mind to find positives and Light in The Darkness.
But I can do it. And each time I recognize what my thoughts are doing to my mood, that engages the habit and the Power to change my mood, my day, my Life.
