Sometimes you just don’t feel like it. Nothing is right about you and nothing goes right for you. Turning your back on the whole world and the unreasonable demands of all those others seems the only logical course to take.
Unfortunately we can’t often do that. Not if we want to continue to live life as we know it and not if we want to continue to learn and explore and try to make what we consider to be progress. So regardless of what it takes we do put out the energy to get up and get going. What’s strange about that is that once we’ve made the colossal effort to actually start doing something we frequently forget how negative we were feeling about things only moments before. Just as pasting a smile on your face makes your voice sound more positive, engaging your brain in some activity can make your perceptions more positive. Once the progression has started you may even feel interested in what you’re doing, and if you don’t or you’re in the middle of some mundane chore, you may have kindled interest in what you’ll be doing next or later on. Once you know you’re not stuck in ‘now’ forever, ‘now’ can be gotten through much more easily, and pleasantly as well, if you become willing to look on the bright side.
No matter how dismal the beginning, middle, or end of a day may be, you should always be able to count on yourself to transform your outlook, shouldn’t you?
