If feeling good is the best option, then why do so many people choose not to feel good? Why do so many people do the things, eat the things, or say the things that leave them feeling less than good? I have pondered this for many, many years because like you, I have not always chosen the “feel good” path in life. In fact, there were times when I chose to do things that I knew without a shadow of a doubt would make me feel absolutely miserable and yet on I went with it!
I believe what happens is that we sink to the point of losing our faith in having the power to change how we feel and thus change how our lives play out. For most, it’s a slow ride to the bottom. A ride you may not even realize is taking you down until you are so far down it’s hard to get up. It’s kind of like one day you wake up and get slapped in the face with your life. The realization of where you are hits you so hard it makes your stomach churn. And the worst part, you have no idea how you got to be where you are. Where did all those days, months, or years go?
The good news….there is no need to worry or stress out about where you are OR how you got there. There is ALWAYS a way out and UP. All you have to do is get back to feeling good. No matter what it takes or how hard it may seem at the time, make the solid choice to feel good now. Just for now, think a thought or do a thing – something – anything – that you know will make you feel good. Stop trying to convince yourself that there is nothing at this point in your life that is going to make you feel good short of winning the lottery. You always have a field of good feeling stuff to choose from. It is up to you as to how bad you want it. And if you are thinking that feeling good is not going to change your life or take care of your problems, you couldn’t be more wrong. Feeling good, no matter what, is the key to your dreams and desires. It is the key to getting back in tune with your Inner Life, the greater and more powerful part of who you truly are. Feeling good is your golden ticket out and up of where you don’t want to be and in and around where you do want to be.
I never believed it either – that something as simple as choosing to feel good no matter what would change my life, but it did and it still does. The more I choose to feel good, the more abundance flows into my life. And yes, I too was stuck and woke up one day wondering how the heck I got to where I was. At first it was hard to move out of the sludge, but the more I focused on how I wanted to feel versus how I was feeling the easier it became. Before I knew it, I was waking up wondering how in the heck I ever chose to feel anything less than good, less than happy, less than joy, less than appreciative!
It is your life and your choice. If you truly want things to change for the better, there is nothing or no one that will stop you. Just remember you have the power to create the life you want. Be still and listen to your heart, for it knows nothing but the truth and the way. Choose to feel good no matter what and watch what happens. To feel good is the best option if you want out and up!
“If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within. Live, breathe and be your Inner Life. Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be.”
Love & Light,
