More, More, More......
It's all about love. Love of anything emits the strongest emotions, even stronger than hate. Gratitude is the constant profession of love. Add love to absolutely any situation and it makes it better. Any conflict of any size with anybody no matter the circumstances can be made better with love. How, might be your question, how do you get to a place of love? With gratitude; practice daily, hourly, minute by minute and an evolution starts to happen. You cannot possibly practice gratitude constantly and not come ever closer to love than anger or jealousy or revenge or any other negative emotion.
The thing is; love given comes back, bigger. You send send it out and is gains strength like a hurricane that has stalled. When it returns it envelops you. When you feel bad, you have bed head, sweat pants with lint, you know the kind of day I am talking about, it is not chocolate that will lift you although it's not a bad attempt.
Take a shower. While your in there start thinking about what you love. Then be thankful for having received these things you love. Focus on everything that makes you feel good. Elevate to a better place. Don't think about bloat or weight gain or ants that want in. Ignore the green pool, the broken door and empty bag of oreos. There will always be kids that won't listen and a cat that waits for you to lay out your clothes to take a nap. Your family may ignore you all day until you begin to do something for yourself. Then it's an emergency, right? They need you! But it's ok, it really is. Breathe and put a smile on your face. Focus on the love you feel for them to alleviate the frustration that creeps in when you are not looking. I wonder why we accept and wallow in despair and frustration so easy, which feels terrible but we feel like treating the emotional ailment with love is so far fetched? What do you do to turn around a bad day??
