Which comes first? The Chicken or the Egg?
Which comes first? The Action or the Emotion?
Truth is that our feelings and our behavior are intertwined in complex ways. Action impacts mood; a brisk walk with shoulders back and eyes cast upward to the heavens will lift most any mood; moping around will rarely energize anyone.
So feel free to fake joy! Lift up your voice; lift up your spirits! Use this mind/body connection to access the best you; sometimes you’ve just got to “tell the truth in advance” knowing that you are not quite there yet but you know the path and you are on your way to a better, brighter place.
Thoughts held in mind attract in kind; be they gloomy or joyous. Your life, your mind, your choices.
As always, I share what I most want/need to learn. – Nathan S. Collier
