how do I want to feel
I get it, we are human and we have emotions and can feel sad from time to time. I used to be sad most of the time, it was sad. Then I realized that that isn't how I wanted to feel. I realized I had a choice. Anytime I feel sad about anything, I recognize it, sit with it, allow myself to feel it and then I ask myself, is this how you want to feel, and I will say no, Id like to be in a happier state, Id like to smile, and so I do. Just like that smile, in the middle of crying or in the middle of anger, in the middle of any feeling that isn't so neat. Try it, it does something to the spirit. Some days its harder to smile than others but none the less, I do it and I make it a habit. You have to know what makes you happy and keep that close. For me its watching comedy stand ups on YouTube or a funny sitcom on TV, laughter is important to me. I keep humor close by. Singing, writing, music, painting, coloring with my kids or going for a walk and watching the sunset. Us humans NEED to be creative and expressive so finding healthy outlets is important. Keep things that make you smile and feel good very close.
And anther thing, expect to fail and do the practices all over again, day after day.
