If you let the constant barrage of negativity that continues to knock on your soul’s door every time you turn on the news, flick through social media or whatever form of communication you’re attuned to, it’s easy to let a frown lay upon your crown.
All too often there’ll be some snippet of shit (yep, that just happened) that will cause you to stop, reflect and then get bummed by that particular piece of information. Then that usually cascades into further negative thoughts because that’s just what we’ve become accustomed to.
For the last few weeks, my universe has tried to deliver as many possible challenges as it could. From two family members passing away, another family member getting some horrid news regarding their health and work continually being the biggest career challenge for everyone at work, life has been trying to knock me on my ass.
Yet, upon reflection, it ain’t all that bad. Death is part of the cycle of life. Work is a mere blip on the ass of what the world has to offer. The current challenges aren’t over yet.
If this is the worst that I have to endure, then I’m pretty happy with things overall. I get to wake up and breathe. That’s always a winning start to the day. Perhaps it’s come down to trying to smile more often. A smile is contagious. Try it.
Finding time to smile is where it’s at for me right now. The more I can smile and genuinely feel better about all that is said and done, then hot diggity dog, my universe will smile along with me. Oh yes… it will!
