    Deep breathing

    Normally when we breathe, we think we are breathing fully. But now that you are conscious of it, take in a big breath and see how much more room there is in your lungs to fill. When you practice bigger breaths, notice how this not only calms your body, but it also takes your mind off of things like anger. Does this help anyone?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    Being

    Notice how the mind loves to try to convince you that you should be doing more. No matter how far you go or how much you accomplish, it will insist there is more you need to do. Even when you are on vacation and simply resting, the mind will tell you, you are wasting your time. But life is not about getting anywhere. There is no destination or finish line. If you let your mind convince you of these things, you will constantly think you are not good enough. Can you relate to this? How do you ignore the constant pressures that your mind tries to attack you with?

    Reflection

    Remember that thoughts and emotions are simply visitors. They come and go. But if we fight them and wish they shouldn't be there, they stick around longer. Notice that thoughts are simply flying around in your head, and notice how much attention you give them. When you can recognize that your thoughts are not you, nor are they a reflection of you, you can begin to free yourself from them. Does anyone practice anything like this?

    The world

    The world convinces you that once you have health issues your lesser or that you won't be happy but that is absolutely incorrect. We are so much stronger because of what we have to overcome now and because of the creative thinking we have to use to reach something across the room without walking very much or having to connect with your caretaker while still being true to yourself.

    And we can be happy. That obviously takes a lot more work than normal people and I mean a lot lot more work than normal people but it is possible. It may not be constant but it can come in spurts and that is okay. Searching for that Joy with everything you have in you is a much better way to live.
