My new Moroccan floor pillow – stuffed with Spring clothes (great space-saver). This definitely brought me situational happiness.
This week was weird.
Weird is the best way to describe it.
There were downs and there were ups.
You know how when a week starts out bad, you think: “this is gonna be a bad week.”
I was determined not to think that way. To think the opposite even.
The more I said “the week will be good,” the more the little inconveniences rolled off my back.
I realized I had slipped from present-moment awareness into continually thinking about the next moment to come…grasping at the future…planning…waiting for something “better”.
I made a conscious effort to bring my awareness back to the present moment (why is it so hard!)
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about situational happiness, and how my mood changes dramatically depending on the good or bad things that happen to me.
I tried to keep my mood balanced.
And I feel so much more stable when I don’t get too overjoyed with the highs or too upset with the lows.
So my intention for next week is: repeat a mantra of positivity, stay awake in the present moment, and don’t get too caught up in the higs…or the lows.
