Hello friends! How are you doing?
I truly hope you are keeping your chin up and your spirits high.
You know, during times like these (well, I do not really recall any other times during my lifetime like these…), high spirits and good vibes are very important. It makes a huge difference in everything, and it all begins with what you’re letting in. When you spend time listening to and taking in only bad news, how do you feel? Down, depressed, angry? If you’re feeling that way, you are spreading that feeling to others as well, and it keeps going in a cycle.
BUT — if you choose to tune out negativity, only let in positivity, goodness, kindness, fun, happiness, uplifting tales, etc., your spirits will begin to rise. You’ll feel happier, perhaps even joyous – hooray!! Then, what do you think you’re sharing with others? Joy! Happiness! Beauty!! Then they will feel that joy and perhaps continue to share that feeling.
Let’s get a cycle of happiness going again, that’s what I say! Drive out the darkness. It cannot get to you if you do not let it in. And believe me, I know that can be a difficult task right now, but I have made myself a promise to not dwell in the darkness. I stay informed plenty, but I am trying to learn to tune out what brings me down, and focus on what lifts me up.
Give it a try for yourself. See what you think. How can you spread more joy, beauty, and light? I believe it takes just a spark from each of us to defeat the darkness and dark energy that seems to be ablaze right now. So what do you say? Care to shine your beautiful light?
I hope you can find fun things and projects to keep your mind focused on what makes you happy. I’ve come to realize that caring about what’s going on doesn’t mean that I have to indulge completely in the bad “feelings” of what’s going on. I can pray for people or for a situation, do physically what I can to help, and put the rest in God’s very capable hands. I feel that I can be much more help when my spirits are in the right place. I am then more capable of love and light, and then sharing love and light.
I hope your spirits are high and that you are feeling wonderful inside, and shining your beautiful light!
Feel free to share in the comments what you’ve been doing to keep your spirits up. Would love to hear!
Much love, joy, and light,
