Marinate In Self Love Instead of Wallowing in Self Loathing: a Podcast
It happened on a random Thursday…
This afternoon, on a random Thursday in August, I became overwhelmed …
Overwhelmed with JOY and hopefulness and self love.
I recognized it about an hour or two ago and then I sat on my couch and I thought about why I felt so euphoric and joyous.
And then it hit me…
I do this regularly … except in the other direction.
Isn’t it funny how we spend time wallowing in our disgust and disappointment? When I am unhappy or even unmotivated, I spend time thinking about it and mulling over all the reasons why and all the things that are wrong and … basically, I pout and sink deeper into the situation.
But today – doing it this other way, how amazingly decadent.
Marinating is Far Better than Wallowing
Inasmuch as I can amplify my doldrums by wallowing, I can reverberate my joy using the same basic concept.
But, seriously – who could call that wallowing? It’s lovely and warm … like soaking in a hot tub after a long day — I am “steeping” in the lovely thing that is my life.
Join me… in podcast joy or in your own mental spaces … 🙂
I love hearing from you. What are you joyful about today? Have you ever wallowed in a negative space? How about marinated in the positive? What do you do to extend the joy? Or to shorten the doldrums?
