Show it the door
Thursday, September 14, 2017
Don't let words of discouragement drag you down.
Get up, open the door, and kick it out.
Let good things spring from your lips,
rejoice in all things.
Be an encouragement to others.
Be a sparkle of sunshine in others' days.
Be a listener, be a friend, and don't ever, ever, ever let discouragement overtake you.
If it is a threat, put on some favorite music, look at something beautiful in nature (today I looked at pinecones, and mushrooms in the yard, the leaves in the forest across the street), hug a favorite pet, a friend, your spouse, your children, your teddy bear.
Watch a funny movie.
Dance and sing to music you like, and you will find that you won't find discouragement there any more, and a smile just might sit on your face.
Getting healthier is my job, one day, one step, one moment at a time.
