You've heard the ol' thoughts become things line a million times, and you know that lurking around on the low end of the emotional vibration scale will get you absolutely nowhere. If you want peace, love, happiness, and all the good stuff in life, you have to be putting out those vibes in order to receive it back.
Problem is, life can suck sometimes. No matter how hard we try to feel good and "be the change", we're still human. We still get annoyed, frustrated, and pissed off over seemingly little irritations (don't even ask me how mad I was at my dog yesterday when he wouldn't listen to me at the dog park…)
Even if you're not ready to throw a hissy fit, you can still be just plain blah…meh…you know that feeling?
Want an easy, instant solution? Do something stupid.
Here's something to try when you're stuck in traffic, the guy ahead of you is driving below the speed limit, or you're on your way to work when you'd much rather be going anywhere else (I'd stick to using this technique while in your car or house so people don't think you're crazy).
When you want to get out of your pissy state, or funky blah mode, put a big grin on your face and let out a loud WOOO HOOO!!! Don't just say it-YELL IT!
Will you feel ridiculous doing this? You bet! Does it work? Of course it does silly or I wouldn't be sharing it with you.
When you shock your system by doing something stupid like this, you're interrupting your thought pattern and instantly changing your state. Usually that's all it takes to jolt your brain into a happier gear and lighten up a bit.
Once you've done your big WOOO HOOO!!! , laugh at yourself. Take some deep breaths, and put things into perspective. Is your current situation really worth feeling like shit over? Is it really that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things? We all experience this kind of stuff on a regular basis. Life never gives us a day off. We can't always feel good and avoid life's ickiness, but we are always in complete control of how we choose to deal with things.
