I have used the power of a smile or laughter to survive the last few years. It is truly good medicine. I can not believe the difference it can make to your life. Find some thing funny to watch, Or create photos like the one to the right. I had a good day taking photos of my friends son. When this image was taken. We were down the street from my house.And the abandon rail road tracks made a good addition to the images. I photo edited the picture of him to the right. There are many other photos I did for him. This was for his graduation.
But this all boils down to I found joy and happiness in my camera, and digital enhancements are so much fun to do.
I look for happy positive posts to share on face book. When out in public, I smile at people, I do not even know. But the point to this post is. No matter what happens, when you feel bad. You have to look for , or do something to counter act the negative feeling.
As most of you know in the past I have vented on this blog. It was a way to release the feelings. I also went back and deleted some of the really bad ones. It was a way of me not reliving the way I felt when I wrote them. I found if you write a letter and express your feelings to some one. It magically, releases the way you feel about them too. You can either send them the letter. Or just destroy it. It helps you forgive them. With out them knowing anything. And you are in no way giving them a pardon for there past actions.Because this frees you mentally. You are no longer the prisoner of your thoughts. The power of writing is amazing.
This was a way to turn a negative into a positive. I can not believe it has been 6 years. Writing on this blog. There were also things I did not share here. But I feel like I have over come them all.
Your positive comments have helped me way more than I can ever express. I am so grateful for you all.
I feel peace in my heart now. I learned to let go of so many issues, I thought were devastating. And learned every thing is really temporary. I learned to block thoughts. Not to let my mind nag me into trauma. I wish, I could explain how to do this. But is is just getting tough with your self. Not allowing negative self talk.
I also pat my self on the back 15 months free of antidepressants. My only addictions left are smoking and chocolate. And I do not wish to let them go. Smoking is like a drug addition. And I can not express at this time my dependance on it.
I released worry, what happens happens. I am just an observer. Learning from this life.
Have a wonderful day and remember to laugh and play.
