Vlog-Using Gratitude to Shift to a Better Mood

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I am talking myself down from a rage to state of calm and gratitude. I am using this vlog to talk myself down from rage to a better mood. This is the third try (tech. difficulties) so I'm much calmer and you see more positive mood and more views of nature. It worked pretty well. I shared this so you can see the process at work.

Did anyone view my vlog from yesterday before the "Kids Dance Party" called "Vlog Today"? Weird to get NO comments on a vlog. That is ok, tho. In that vlog I talked about my mom visiting and what I ate at dinner at the restaurant and my son's behavior.

    Thank you for being willing to share yourself with us and then encouraging me to follow suit. Girl, I can get really mad, so I need to do this. I was calmed and I appreciate you. I am on the 3-6-5 team with you - hey there team mate!

    Great idea taking a walk and speaking about things you are grateful for to relieve some stress. Have a great day with your mom :)

    Definitely a calming view. It's so nice to be able to experience beauty like that when we are feeling out of sorts. Beautiful views. That's awesome on saying adios to those inches. emoticon Thanks for taking me along on your walk again. You know I love it!. Praying for you and your family. emoticon

    I could never get that VLOG TODAY load for me.. I would push pause and wait for the vid to load but nope. I don't know if it was my internet, spark people, or a combination of both. I will try to watch this vlog and the VLOG TODAY later.. maybe things will be running better here.
