Enjoying Life Despite Obstacles

June 1, 2016

What do you do when your day starts out crappy?

 

Do you feel sorry for yourself and hide in your room for the rest of the day? Or do you choose not to let outside people and situations determine your ability to enjoy your life?

 

My memorial day started out in this way.

 

I woke up and read several emails and messages that were pretty frustrating (I'm working on resisting the urge the check email in the morning). I won't go into the details, but that combined with my house viewing appointments falling through (I'm in the process of moving) led me to feel a bit discouraged.

 

I felt my emotional state dropping as negative feelings crept into my heart, squashing my inner light.

 

I recognized that this wasn't an emotional place I wanted to stay in, but I was having a hard time climbing out of the hole I felt myself falling into. 

 

I seriously considered not going to the Memorial Day BBQ I was planning on attending later that day.

 

The last thing I felt like doing was being around other people. I didn't want to drive an hour just to feel awkward because of lingering negative emotions.

 

And that's when it hit me.

 

Why would I let someone else's words, or frustrating situations, control my own emotional state, and my ability to enjoy my life?

 

Sure, they will probably initially stir up my emotions, and that's ok, it's part of being human. But I can make a conscious choice to let it go and move on with my life.

 

So that's what I did! And I had a great time. Watch my video below of me on my way to the party.

 

(Note: If you feel you will become uncomfortable watching my singing/dancing, stop the video around 1:53.)
