I wonder where this blog is going? Do you ever start down a path only to wonder what the heck? This is the time of year that brings a lot of feelings to the surface don't you think? I just broke into tears a few hours ago after returning from a walk on the river. Oh yeah Feel It.....
One of my sayings that I remind myself of is "a smile is worth a thousand good intentions." Since I prefer being an introvert when I walk around in public I am not one to say "hi" when I pass people. I remind myself to just smile if I do not care to speak unless spoken to. Walking home tonight I pass two maintenance men putting up Christmas lights on some trees. It wasn't until I had passed them by I realized they both had spoken to me and said "good evening". I had just kept walking as I told myself I should go back and smile and say "sorry I did not realize you had spoken to me, good evening to you". Did I? No I just kept walking and when I opened my apartment door and stepped inside I just burst out in tears. I felt mean and nasty. Feel It, Wear It.
Tomorrow is a new day. My intention is to be a lot more friendly and cheery and joy full and spread the love!! Not in a do- gooder way but honest and genuine. We all have both introvert and extrovert tendencies and tis' the season for me to be more extroverted. None of that phony "have a nice day" routine but an effort to put a smile on my face......feel it, wear it, love it.
.....now way to be lonely #2. Contentment: we no longer believe escaping our loneliness is going to bring happiness, courage, or strength.
