Today is a day that I feel sad and down. I don’t feel down often but when I do it always takes me by surprise. Today I feel like doing nothing by sitting alone and crying. It could be because I pulled my pec in the gym yesterday or it could just be loneliness. Either way it feels like nothing has flavor and nothing is exciting.
So I dig into my rituals to help me. I meditate, I breathe deeply and I remind myself that this will pass as well. I can’t help but wonder what advice Henry David Thoreau might give me. What compensation would he tell me to look for? I think he would remind me to strive to live simply and with wisdom.
I have tried my whole life to live a good, honest and joyful existence. I don’t complain about my condition in life. I don’t talk down to anyone and I offer understanding and respect to everyone that I meet and interact with. But this isn’t enough to be happy always. What I am focused on and what I think about will always take me to places good and sometimes bad. But I know that I am in control. I am driving my mind’s movements.
So today may feel badly. But I will make it a good day. I will paint a smile on my face because I have so much to be happy for. Even though today it may be harder to feel my joy it is there for me if I am brave enough to continue to reach for it. So I reach. I reach. I continue to reach.
I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. And so are each one of you.
