Top of the morning dear friends.
Today, let’s consider that good feelings can become a habitual part of our lives. There is absolutely no virtue in the unnecessary suffering many of us have felt for much of our life. We don’t have to allow others to make us miserable, and we don’t have to make ourselves miserable. A good day does not have to be the “calm before the storm.” That’s an old way of thinking we learned in dysfunctional systems.
In recovery and healing, a good day or a good feeling doesn’t mean we’re in denial. We don’t have to wreck our good times by obsessively searching for or creating a problem.
Enjoying our good days doesn’t mean we’re being disloyal to loved ones who are having problems. We don’t have to make ourselves feel guilty because other people aren’t having a good day. We don’t have to make ourselves miserable to be like them. They can have their day and their feelings; we can have ours. A good feeling is to be enjoyed. More than we can imagine, good days are ours for the asking.A good feeling is to be enjoyed. More than we can imagine, good days are ours for the asking.Click To Tweet
Today, let’s allow ourselves to enjoy what is good. We don’t have to wreck our good day or good feelings; we don’t have to let others spoil it either! Many blessings to you and yours today my very dear friends!
