what can you change?

Sometimes we stay in situations that we can change.

I’m not talking about giving up on your commitments when it is a selfish move that will hurt or affect others adversely.

But there are times when we don’t think of ourselves – don’t take care of ourselves.

There are certainly times of enduring situations which require us to either stop whining and grow up or stand strong and be brave.

Then there are the times when we can make changes to make things easier for us. If no one else is giving us permission we have to give ourselves permission. We can get so stuck in a rut that we don’t even consider a change.

No one is responsible for your happiness but you.

What can you do today to thrust yourself out of the suffering slump you are in?

Our choices have to override our emotions. ¬†This isn’t easy to do but once you realize how you’re feeling isn’t always an honest assessment of your situation, you get in a routine of thinking differently.

I remember one time feeling like everything was closing in – irritable, cabin-fever, bored. So I decided to go for a walk. I discovered how much better I felt. My whole perspective changed.

This is the beginning of a new week. Do one thing each day despite how you are feeling, especially if you’re in a slump.
