Imagine A World Full Of People You Love

What if you lived in a world full of people you love?  Not just people you love in most places but every single person was someone you love.

I believe you can trick your mind in to believing anything you want it to.  Experiments have shown that your heart and mind will follow cues you give it physically.  This means that a smile can make you happy and that holding your hands up in the air in the right way can make you more confident.

So what if you spent a day, or a week, or maybe a month telling yourself that you love everyone you encounter throughout a given day?  Could this be enough to convince your mind that you do indeed love everyone as if they were a family member?  I theorize that this may indeed be a possibility.

My biggest question is how would this affect the way I live my life?  I can imagine I would be more understanding if someone cut me off in traffic.  It probably would make me feel more inclined to open doors for people.  This would most likely force a new perspective for me that could be life changing.

I’m going to give it a shot.  I’m going to start saying, in my head, “I love you’ to everyone I see whether they’re in a car or walking past me.  When or if I start seeing results, I’ll share them here with all of you lovely people.

Be well.  Be positive.


The Sun Can’t Shine Every Day

Today is a struggle and I’ve hardly even made it out of bed. My youngest has a sensitivity to artificial colors and she ate a donut someone gave us that has artificial colors in it. Also, my wife has completed her first week of school but the school can’t get themselves in gear and get her book store account set up. It was supposed to be all set today but it isn’t. They said try back later. My seven year old’s nerves are wearing thin because of my five year old. She’s a super sweet girl until she eats something with artificial colors in it. Then she turns in to a monster. This isn’t a blog about nutrition but if you have mental health problems I would avoid artificial colors in your food.

I’m feeling anxious. I’m trying to block things out, living in this moment, deep breathing…. I know today will end well but for now I am trying to find a way to relax. I don’t like to take Xanax and only use it as a last resort. So for now I will just tell myself that everything is ok. To try to smile and enjoy my day off.

Be well, be positive
