There are really only two emotions, love and fear. With varying degrees of intensity you can always tell where you are headed with your emotional compass. If you put LOVE at true north and FEAR to the south, how you feel in any given moment will tell you the route you are on. If you are feeling “down” like you are headed south, afraid of outcomes and futures un-wanted, the solution is to find things that you can say “Thanks” for. The emotion of appreciation is love so when you are focused on appreciating, you will be using the uplifting positive power of love in your life and chasing away all your fears.
Think about it, fear and anxiety – worry dims the light of happiness. What are fears and worries? They are you believing that something is going to happen that you do not want to happen. It can be very difficult to push these worries aside because the pressures of day to day life can seem overwhelming at times. Here in lies the magic of Thanksgiving. It is often said that the best way to break a bad habit is to replace it with a good one. Instead of running the story of all your doubts and fears over and over again move that emotional compass toward north by stopping to consider all the things you have to say thanks for.
If you start to get into the habit of making note of everything that happens in your day that you can be appreciative of you will find that they multiply. Each day you will recognize more blessings. Each day you will find yourself headed more directly north with a growing feeling of love permeating your being. If you notice the compass start to move south again, put more focus on finding things to be thankful for. A sunny day, a friendly smile, something delicious to eat, a song that lifts your Spirits, a beautiful sunset and the sounds of the night – you live in a wonderland that is yours to enjoy. All you have to do is keep your heading to the north and you will find your happiness overflowing as love and appreciation fill your world.
Happy Thanksgiving (today and everyday).
