I’m choosing happy!

I’m not always forlorn, it creeps up on me when I’m idle, when my brain is operating on autopilot, you know… showering, emptying the dishwasher, even sometimes walking the dogs.

That’s the one that brings me to my senses, how on earth can I be gloomy when I’m in the fresh air with beautiful blue sky above me and a sweet natured pup at my feet.

Google it… an idle brain is the devils workshop. Whether or not there’s an actual devil it’s hard to disagree with the sentiment. When my mind is permitted to linger in negative spaces I run the risk of feeling down, pitiful…forlorn.

Yes, sometimes a little cry is a healthy thing, acknowledge your feelings, just don’t get stuck. There was a movie in the 80’s with a female character who had a job in the news industry.  In one scene she goes to her hotel room, checks the time, sits on the bed and cries. She cries for a specific length of time, then stops, dries her eyes and gets back to life.  I loved that scene, it’s the only I remember from the movie.

For all of  us out there that suddenly find ourselves with an idle brain, one that’s left space for negative energy…Stop. Let’s concentrate on what we’re physically doing, appreciate each moment of the task, and tell ourselves this: “nothing is hopeless, I haven’t been deprived, I’m choosing happy”


P.S. Interesting fact…after writing this and while trying to remember the name of the movie (Broadcast News with Holly Hunter and William Hurt) I was searching ‘crying scenes‘ and came across the blog Mommy Verbs, looks like I’m not the only one who thinks this is a good plan.

      Thank you, the golden and the border collie are mine, the little white one is my mum’s. The picture is a couple of years old but they look so happy it seemed to fit, dogs always choose happy.

  2. Joy is certainly a choice and sometimes not easily found. Taking steps to occupy your mind with things that make you happy is critical! Good job! =)
