Sometimes we can just wake up on the wrong side of the bed. We can’t put a finger as to why we are feeling agitated or upset. So we begin our day and start picking at ourselves and others because of how we are thinking and feeling. Everyone hides and runs when they see ‘that look’ in your eye.
You can either come through the living room breathing fire and shooting lasers out your eyes or you can do the inner work that is necessary to stave off the bad mood blues.
No matter who you are or what you do, everyone has a day where they just feel less than positive. It is all in how you handle that thought and feeling that will take you to a better feeling place and mood.
Admit to yourself that you are feeling moody and don’t deny it when you are around others when they ask, ‘Are you in a bad mood?’ You don’t have to shoot back, “NO! I’m NOT in a bad mood. It is because of…” The dot dot dot is something we want to blame our mood on or an excuse as to why we feel as we do. Again, admitting to yourself that you are feeling off is the beginning of letting go of the feeling and thought.
Next, think about anything that you say before you say it. Our perspective can be off on those days and we think and feel things we normally wouldn’t. We want to blame, resent, and find something that will help us blow off that steam. Each time you go to say something that doesn’t come from a kind and compassionate place, then take a breath in and let go of the thought within your mind so you don’t put your vibration on another.
Each time you feel the swell within to say something rude or dastardly, take that deep breath in and let go of the thought in the exhale. As you exhale say the word ‘balance’ to yourself. Keep reminding yourself of balance all through the day.
You’ll get through that day and you can get through it without being moody or negative. Keep inner balance in the first and foremost of your mind and heart and let go of what feels resistant. Get through the day with a neutral feeling vibration instead of a negative feeling vibration.
Before you know it, you will find that your mood will shift and the positive will begin to show itself once again.
Inner work my friend…
